American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
Friday, October 21, 2011

After much hard work and effort, the Education Committee has completed its update to the 2001 edition of the Educational CD-ROM, which is now available for purchase on the AADSM store. The CD-ROM is an all-inclusive PowerPoint presentation for PC or Mac, which contains nearly 400 slides and hundreds of photographs and diagrams.  While the CD-ROM is primarily a tool designed for self-study, portions may be used for institutional presentations, public lecture, custom presentations, staff education, and patient education. 

The presentation slides cover the following topics:  

  • Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine
  • Overview of Sleep Medicine
  • Pathophysiology of Sleep Related Breathing Disorders
  • OSA: Signs, Symptoms, and Consequences
  • Diagnosis of OSA
  • Treatment Modalities
  • Practice Parameters
  • Consultation and Examination for Oral Appliance Therapy
  • Clinical Steps for Oral Appliance Therapy
  • Side Effects and Complications of Oral Appliance Therapy
  • Pediatric OSA
  • Reviewing the Evidence
A special thanks to the past and current members of the Education Committee for their dedication to this project!
