Description

On behalf of T&S Therapy Centre International
OSA is a medical condition that is diagnosed by a medical doctor, not a dentist. Working with a Sleep Physician, ENT and others is necessary in treating this condition. Adult therapies for the management of OSA are not suitable for children. Therapies such as CPAP and OAT have been know to arrest skeletal development of the growing child. The good news is, with proper diagnosis and communication between providers, Pediatric OSA can be cured!

Objectives

To understand:
How to screen for sleep disorders in children
How to work with other providers for these conditions
Identify that adult therapies are not suitable for children
