UARS: THE GREY ZONE IS MORE TROUBLE THAN YOU THINK
Steve Carstensen, DDS
Saturday, September 16:  8AM - 8:45AM  (.75 CE Credit Hours)
 
ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Snorers are blissfully unaware of any problem; obstructive sleep apnea is a medical diagnosis with serious consequences. In between are the sleepy, impaired, health-compromised Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome patients. They have symptoms but many health professionals and payers do not recognize the importance of treatment. Left untreated, UARS can have serious health and lifestyle effects. Learn how you can recognize UARS and offer hope for what is often an overlooked, yet critical, condition.
