Dr. Greg Larson, a San Francisco cosmetic dentist, discusses the World Congress of Sleep Apnea 2012 and what patients and peers can learn from it.
San Francisco, California (I-Newswire) August 29, 2012 - SAN FRANCISCO AND SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA - Many sleep apnea doctors and researchers are attending at the 10th World Congress of Sleep Apnea in Rome this month.
Attendees assemble Aug. 27 through Sept. 1 and examine sleep apnea treatment and advances at the Pontificia Universitas Lateranensis campus.
Dr. Greg Larson San Francisco cosmetic dentist is interested in the new technology they will unveil at the conference. Larson has extensive experience working in neuromuscular dentistry and sleep apnea, and he trains other dentists to detect sleep apnea in patients.
Sleep apnea patients stop breathing when they are sleeping. When a patient suffers from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), the airway is obstructed either by relaxed throat muscles or by the tongue. The National Sleep Foundation reported more than 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea.
The World Congress lecturers hail from a wide variety of countries such as Italy, Germany Brazil, Holland, Korea, Japan, Belgium, USA and Mexico. The opening ceremony began at 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, and a reception with the Roma Mayor follows the opening ceremony.
During the conference, specialists will educate peers on an array of sleep apnea topics such as: Snoreplasty Injection, Awake Versus Sedation Endoscopy, Sleep Endoscopy Versus Sleep Videofluoroscopy and VOTE Classification System.
A few presentations will specifically address pediatric sleep apnea specialists. The topics covered will range from Sleep Apnea in Children with Craniofacial Malformations to Upper Airway Evaluation in Pediatric Sleep Apnea: Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy. Dr. Eric J. Kezirian, M.D., M.P.H., a San Francisco sleep apnea expert, will lead a course on Aug. 29 about Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy in OSA.
