Course Description: Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) describes a group of conditions that disrupt normal sleep and breathing patterns in patients of all ages. Common SDB includes primary snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS), and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is frequently undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or undertreated which can lead to significant morbidity and reduction in the quality of life. SDB is caused by various medical issues and anatomic factors and is best treated in a multidisciplinary approach. Dental professionals can play a critical role in screening and treating patients with SDB.
