Oral appliances have made such a difference for patients struggling with sleep apnea! Compliance is so much easier than with positive pressure devices. But recent studies show that chronic illness is produced by sleep interruption from any cause. What about the patients who are following your recommendations but are still tired? And what can you do for the ones who don't have apnea?
We need new strategies! Not only for our patients who are unsuccessful with OAT or PAP therapy but for all the patients who don't have apnea, ......... but still don't sleep normally.
It's the brain that controls airway paralysis in deep sleep: We can control the neurotransmitters responsible for airway paralysis. This new, brain-based approach targets the sleep switches themselves! Because these same neurotransmitters affect the ability to enter and exit deep sleep they can be used to help patients with insomnia, chronic fatigue, and unexplained awakenings.
Now you can help all of your patients, regardless of the form of sleep disruption! The more modalities we have to offer the more successful our patients will be!
Dr. Kent Smith, who is sponsoring the event, says: “Dr. Gominak has opened my eyes to the world beyond DME. For more than 20 years, I thought the answer to my patients’ sleepiness and fatigue rested within the reaches of CPAP, oral devices and surgery. I am thrilled to have another arrow in my sleep quiver.”
