The Use of ApneaRx in a Diagnostic Setting
Recently I addressed a meeting of hospital administrators who had a very simple request. “Please explain how we can implement oral appliance therapy to our current programs in order to reduce our costs, and give our physicians the confidence that the oral appliances they prescribe will address the patient’s need?” I prepared the slide presentation below to address the questions at hand. I tried to make each point research based.
I introduced a few new concepts like combination therapy and explained the use of the Nox T3 as a way of introducing home sleep testing . I really believe that testing patents during titration with an HST device will really help avoid over and under titrations.
At the end of the meeting we had a spirited discussion to say the least. The take away from the meeting was that oral appliances are here to stay. We may need to develop a reasonable way to guide patients through a diagnostic protocol to help establish candidacy.
I am interested in your thoughts please reach out to me with your comments.
Sleep Diagnosis and Therapy magazine recently interviewed Dr Hwang. I think the article really makes a great case for predicting success with oral appliances in the sleep lab Economics_Oral_Apps_LR-
