Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Otolaryngology Volume 46, Issue 11: Highlights from the 2nd Annual Charleston Sleep Surgery Symposium.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Determine appropriate candidates for home sleep study and recognize when laboratory polysomnography is required;
2. Identify and rule out other causes of sleep-disordered breathing;
3. Use upper airway surgery to improve adherence to continuous positive airway pressure;
4. Choose optimal surgical procedure(s) for OSA with drug-induced sleep endoscopy and other clinical techniques;
5. Select patients who may benefit from robotic partial glossectomy.
The original programs were presented by M. Boyd Gillespie, MD, MSc, Professor, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Head and Neck Oncology, Director, MUSC Snoring Clinic, and Vice Chair, Clinical Outreach Medical University of South Carolina, College of Medicine, Charleston.
