The Forest Through the Trees: Treatment Options

The difference between the reluctant patient and the thankful patient? How effectively you can minimize their pain.

Thankful patients return and recommend you to their family and friends. Thankful patients improve practices.

Knowing how to identify and treat sleep apnea is one of the most effective ways to solve a common problem, and the negativity it causes: snoring. Snoring disturbs both the sleep of the person snoring and their partner, and in some cases causes them to sleep in separate rooms. More important, snoring could be an indicator of something far more dangerous: Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Identifying the cause of the snoring, and treating it, can be hugely impactful and create happy and grateful patients.

Dr. Erin Elliott, a leading expert in the field of sleep apnea treatment, is here to show you how take your treatment skills to a higher level.

This complimentary webinar will provide you with a nuanced understanding of the diagnostic process for patients with sleep apnea. You will also leave with a strong knowledge of the available treatments: C-PAP, surgery options and oral appliances will all be covered in-depth.

No other installments need be viewed prior to this session.

Course Objectives:

- Pinpoint a solution: Identify the proper treatment option, such as C-PAP and surgery.
- Match the device to the patient: Learn to determine which oral appliance is best for each individual.
- Know what your patients can expect post-referral: Become well-versed in explaining what will be offered at a specialist. (For example, a home sleep test, an overnight sleep test, etc.)
- What if it’s not sleep apnea? Gain an understanding of other potential causes of snoring and how to fix them.
