On-Demand Webinars on Positional OSA Series

Successfully managing sleep patients in today’s changing healthcare environment is more challenging and costly than ever.  It has become increasingly important to diagnose sleep conditions more efficiently, make therapy easier for patients to live with, and make ongoing care more productive and cost-effective.  Take positional obstructive sleep apnea (POSA): Evidence shows people with POSA may be identified from a sleep study, however, prevalence may be underestimated.  Perhaps because the same sleep therapy has traditionally been used for all kinds of OSA.  It’s time to start looking at POSA more closely not only rethinking assumptions about diagnosis, but also to taking a fresh look at positional devices.
