Pediatric Airway Therapy 2021

Children are not just little adults and cannot be identified, diagnosed, treated, or followed the same as our adult patients with sleep-related breathing disorders. We must reframe our entire thought process and rethink our clinical systems to help them grow to their maximum potential. In this talk, we’ll discuss how to identify children at risk from birth to adolescence, how to communicate to families and other providers, what treatments are possible and when, and how to follow these children to ensure their path to health.

Learn:

  • ask the right questions from families to identify children at risk for SRBD
  • discuss with families and other providers the various age-appropriate treatment options
  • begin habit correction therapy as soon as possible
  • devise a follow-up plan to make sure kids are on a healthy growth plan

For those of us who treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or those who have tried but run into problems that make you want to throw up your hands, think about the four points of breathing obstruction. Each patient has a different set of obstructions, so decisions on how to choose between the hundreds of appliances to treat breathing disorders are based upon multiple points. A structural assessment of these points of the airway is necessary prior to start treatment.

Learn:

  • to identify signs and symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing and OSA in your patients
    • how and why there are no age boundaries of conditions
    • why the need for a comprehensive evaluation of symptoms is necessary for successful treatment
    • identify the four points or airway obstruction using CBCT imaging

Learn:

  • how the Vivos system is capable of achieving this
