Sleep apnea is one of the most destructive medical conditions. For the past few years, medical professionals have been trying to come up with means of unravelling this mystery. Research indicates that there is a correlation between the condition and other medical disorders such as cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and diabetes. The findings of this research highlighted the need for professionals to come up with means of treating the condition. Dental Sleep Masters’ founder, Dr. Avi Weisfogel is among professionals who are trying to come up with interventions for the disorder.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been leading efforts aimed at finding the best diagnosis and treatment measures for sleep apnea. Typically, up to 90 percent of individuals who are affected by the disorder are never diagnosed. With the understanding that early diagnosis and treatment is significant, Avi has been raising awareness about this medical condition in the hope that more people will come forth to get diagnosed and consequently, treated. In line with this, Dental Sleep Masters has come up with a model that seeks to rope in physicians, sleep labs, and sleep experts.
The Sleep Apnea Model
This innovative program seeks to create a community that will make sleep apnea treatment accessible to all those who are affected. Sleep physicians and physicians will be joined by dental practitioners so that comprehensive clinical support can be offered to patients. With such models, it will be easy for more breakthroughs to emerge within the field. New treatment devices are likely to be developed, something that will boost clinical care. Already, devices such as THN Sleep Therapy have already received approval from the Food and Drug Administration.
