Apnea and other sleep related disorders - Zagreb - 2024

Welcome

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) states that “In an age of constant activity, the solution to improving the nation’s health may lie in helping it sleep better.”

This course will update you on the aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the five other sleep related disorders.

You will learn about the incidence and prevalence of sleep disorders and their estimated effect on economy and health care costs. We will discuss modern diagnostic modalities (PSG and drug induced sleep endoscopy) and debate about old effective treatment modalities like CPAP versus more modern treatment modalities such as mandibular advancement devices (MAD), barbed wire pharyngoplasty, positional therapy, hypoglossal stimulation and bariatric surgery.
