The underlying pathophysiology of sleep-related breathing disorders is multifactorial and varies considerably between individuals. Personalized treatment plans may be developed when mechanisms of patient-specific respiratory events are identified and understood. This recorded lecture will briefly review key physiologic factors while emphasizing adjunctive therapies to improve treatment outcomes.

At the conclusion of this lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss theoretical phenotypes of sleep-related breathing disorders;
  2. Describe non-anatomical factors affecting oral appliance treatment response; and
  3. Collaborate with referring physicians to provide personalized treatment plans for patients.

Target Audience
Dentists screening or treating patients with sleep-related breathing disorders.
