For many sleep apnea patients, their spouses are the first ones to suspect that something is wrong. It’s usually noticed from their heavy snoring and apparent struggle to breathe. Co-workers or friends of the sleep apnea victim may notice that the individual falls asleep during the day at inappropriate times (such as while driving a car, working or talking). The patient often does not know he or she has a problem and may not believe it when told. It is important that the person see a doctor for evaluation of the sleep problem.
Dentists, primary care physicians, pulmonologists, neurologists or other physicians with specialty training in sleep disorders may be involved in making a definitive diagnosis and in initiating treatment. Diagnosis of sleep apnea is not simple as there can be many different reasons for disturbed sleep. This course will present an overview of what sleep apnea is and what treatment options are available.
Dr. Demko is certified by the American Board of Dental Sleep Apnea and is the expert advisor to the Food and Drug Administration in the field of oral device therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. After an 18 year relationship with the Beth Israel (Deaconess Medical Center) Sleep Center, Dr Demko left her general dental practice at Beth Israel in 1997 and restricted her practice to the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Her office recently received accreditation from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine — fourth in the country and the first in New England to receive this coveted accreditation.
