Webinar: Is the Apnea-Hypopnea Index a Good Way to Evaluate Sleep Apnea?

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.

Learning Objectives

  • 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
