2017 Annual Session Conference


AS17B06C - If They Snore, Do More


Apr 22, 2017 10:35am ‐ Apr 22, 2017 10:55am

Description

Overnight polysomnolgaphy in a sleep laboratory remains the gold standard for diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). However, the high cost and inconvenience of this test makes home monitoring an attractive alternative. This lecture will discuss the merits of home monitoring as well as the use of the Pediatric Sleep Questionaire to identify patients at risk for SDB in the orthodontic practice. And, importantly, what to do when you find them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the differences between at-home monitoring and Overnight PSG.
  • Define the score on the PSQ that puts a patient in the at-risk category.
  • Evaluate the health consequences of SDB for teenagers.
