Assessment & Better Treatment of Patients with Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

Posted on 20 September 2019

A one day seminar suitable for Dentists

With 5.5 hours enhanced CPD.

Presented by Hans-Peter Kopp DDS and Dr Judith Husband.

Up to 40% of the population snore, potentially disrupting the sleep of themselves and their partners. A proportion of them suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), which if severe and requires medical intervention. Suitably trained GDPs, working in conjunction with properly accredited technicians can successfully manage many patients snoring. However, it is ethically, clinically and legally necessary to first identify patients at risk of OSA and appropriately refer them before treatment. This one-day seminar will provide the training which allows GDPs to start screening patients, managing their snoring and improving them and their partners quality of life.

Aims, Objectives & Anticipated Outcomes

At the end of the seminar delegates should be able to better understand:> The physical conditions related to snoring and OSA.> Appropriate screening to help identify patients that would benefit from medical assessment. > Documenting the assessment process and referring patients whose OSA falls out of the scope of practice of GDPs.> Clinical requirements for prescribing, constructing and fitting anti snoring devices. > Why many patients stop using Mandibular Adjustment Splints that are prescribed to treat their snoring. > Clinical advantages of using the Silensor–sl. > Identifying appropriately trained and indemnified dental technicians/laboratories to manufacture anti snoring devices. > Appropriate follow up assessments to review signs and symptoms including TMJ monitoring maintenance of snoring devices. > How to keep and maintain appropriate records. > Indemnity and insurance requirements in production and supply of the Silensor–sl Mandibular Adjustment Splints (MAS).
