The 44th Annual Moyers Symposium
The University of Michigan
Sleep Apnea—What Every Clinician (and Patient) Should Know
March 4-5, 2017
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a relatively common disorder characterized by the repeated collapse of the upper airway, resulting in sleep fragmentation and episodic hypoxemia. The consequences of untreated sleep apnea can be significant and include increased risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke, decreased quality of life and motor vehicle accidents. It is estimated that over 80% of individuals who have sleep apnea do not know that they have this medical problem, emphasizing the need for greater awareness among clinicians.
OSA has a complex multifactorial etiology and is more common in older adults who are overweight, but it can affect individuals of any age and body type. Even children, especially those with enlarged tonsillar or constricted naso-pharyngeal tissues may have obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea requires long-term management; lifestyle changes, oral appliances, surgery, and breathing devices such as CPAP can be used treat sleep apnea successfully as long as the condition is recognized.
The Moyers Symposium has had a long history of dealing with interdisciplinary topics and the 44th Annual Moyers Symposium is no exception. We are bringing together 10 health care providers with expertise in sleep disordered breathing to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea patients, considering in detail the multiple treatment approaches that are available. Attendees may also discover that this condition is personally relevant; as the signs, symptoms and history of sleep apnea are presented.

“What is it? How Do I Use it?: Today's Dental Products and Treatment Options”
Today’s dental sessions require an exhaustive knowledge of products, instruments and equipment. As professionals providing health services, we should be at the pulse of clinical devices and treatment, while being able to recommend product protocols for use in the office.
The process of care (assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation and evaluation) requires us to understand what these products are, how to use them, contemporary treatment options, how to implement the procedures and evaluate what is and what is not working for us as individuals and as clinicians. We will also discuss ergonomic options to protect ourselves as clinicians.
