Should we seek alternative therapies? In this webinar, Dr. Abaluck will review new evidence available on treating Positional OSA with NightBalance positional therapy vs. APAP.  Elizabeth King, Physician Assistant, will discuss the importance of patient follow up after prescribing positional therapy, and answer the most common asked questions by patients.
