Obstructive Sleep Apnea Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a disease with increasing prevalence. The application of surgery to the treatment on OSAHS is a growing field and this course was created to show-case the up-to-date surgical procedures available to treat those who cannot tolerate non-surgical treatment options. With a strong practical focus, the course will include anatomical, clinical and surgically oriented lectures, anatomical dissection with hands-on supervision and clinical case discussions to consolidate learning objectives. The face-to-face relationship between the faculty and participants makes this course an important starting point for all specialists who want to explore sleep disordered breathing surgery.
Course Learning Objectives:
- Evaluate the upper airway from an obstructive sleep apnea perspective.
- Demonstrate the heterogeneous nature of anatomical obstruction in obstructive sleep apnea.
- Explain how to identify the site of the obstruction and determine if multi-level surgery is required.
- Demonstrate the surgical steps involved in common surgical interventions for obstructive sleep apnea.
- Identify peri-operative morbidity and how to manage this in surgical treatment of OSA.
- Discuss the role of surgery in pediatric OSA.
