Ask the Doc Webinar – Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Patients with Down Syndrome

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is common in patients of all ages with Down Syndrome. Removing the tonsils and adenoids often helps but frequently does not cure the problem. In this seminar, we will bring together sleep medicine specialists and airway surgeons to discuss the work up and treatment options that are available.

After this seminar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the clinical concerns for patients with obstructive sleep apnea and why treatment is recommended.
  2. Understand the risk, benefits, and alternatives of the most commonly recommended treatments.
  3. Review the outcomes of treatment in patients with Down Syndrome.

This seminar is sponsored by the American Broncho-Esophagological Association in partnership with the North American Down Syndrome Society patient advocacy group.
