This presentation will go into depth on how sleep deprivation is at the root of many chronic diseases. Many medications are simply masking the symptoms instead of treating the cause, and true understanding of sleep will help showcase this. The goal is to first aid the health professional to take control of their health and well-being so that they may counsel their patients and be ambassadors of quality of sleep to anyone they meet. Quality vs. quantity of sleep will be discussed beyond the typical stratification of obstructive sleep apnea. Upper airway resistance syndrome will be covered in detail. Real life implementations for improvement of sleep will be discussed in depth for health care providers to begin right away.
- Understand sleep and its relationship to chronic diseases.
- Truly understanding what drives quality of sleep.
This course is designed for dentists and hygienists.
