On October 7, 2020, Nierman Practice Management hosted a webinar with Dr. John Remmers discussing factors that contribute to AHI and how to implement a practical, evidence based sleep apnea treatment planning solution.
More than one billion people worldwide suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is a growing treatment option for many healthcare providers. Traditionally, practitioners have diagnosed or assessed a patient’s sleep disordered breathing issues, including OSA, using the apnea hypopnea index (AHI). During this webinar, Dr. John Remmers will discuss the factors that contribute to AHI and explain a better way to predict outcomes exists. In addition, you’ll learn how implementing a practical, evidence-based treatment planning solution will increase OAT’s efficacy and improve patient care.
- Facilitate the understanding of the cause of sleep apnea
- Compare and contrast the differences between apnea hypopnea index (AHI) and oxygen desaturation index (ODI)
- Precision medicine and need for effective OAT treatment planning
- Impact of predictable and clinically validated technology on patient experience
