This course has been coordinated through the University of California, San Francisco Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the Penn Center for Sleep Disorders at the University of Pennsylvania. The program is designed to provide a comprehensive review and update on recent advances in sleep apnea and snoring. New approaches and controversies in the management of patients with sleep disordered breathing will be highlighted. Leaders in the field from Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Pediatrics, Bariatric Surgery, Neurology and Obesity Research will share their medical and surgical expertise in didactic sessions, case presentations and workshops with the intent to close practice gaps in physician knowledge and competence for diagnosing and managing sleep disordered breathing and complications resulting thereof. Patients with sleep disordered breathing are highly prevalent in every physician’s practice, and complications related to the disease can manifest in a number of ways to the detriment of patient health and well-being. There will be ample opportunity for interaction with participating faculty. An electronic course syllabus, complete with program outline and up-to-date references, will be provided to each participant. Please bring your laptop or tablet if you would like to view the syllabus during the didactic sessions.
