  • Date: Tuesday, May 29, 2018
  • Time: 12:15 PM Pacific Daylight Time
  • Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Summary

When obstructive sleep apnea patients fail or can't adhere to the continuous form of positive airway pressure therapy (commonly known as CPAP), there are other options that clinicians should explore to get patients to adherence. In some cases, these other options include advanced positive airway pressure modes such as bilevel devices and adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV), which take into account such parameters as expiratory pressure intolerance. Learn what the literature says about these "rescue" devices as well as real-world approaches to switching patients to advanced therapies when indicated.

He simply told her to think of a new one. “In your mind, with thinking and picturing, take a few minutes, close your eyes, and I want you to change the dream any way you wish,” said Dr. Krakow, founder of the P.T.S.D.
