MW19B09A - ENT Perspectives on OSA

Jan 27, 2019 8:00am ‐ Jan 27, 2019 9:00am


Description

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has become the primary reason to perform an adenotonsillectomy (T&A) in children. This lecture will present a practical approach to the management of pediatric OSA. Recently, there have been published and updated clinical practice guidelines and clinical trials on the diagnosis, surgical indications and perioperative management of children with OSA. The lecture will use an evidence based approach to answer practical dilemmas that face clinicians such as: who needs polysomnography? What are the criteria for overnight observation? And, how do you manage a child with persistent OSA after T&A?

Learning Objectives:

  • Familiarize themselves clinical practice guidelines and clinical trials on pediatric OSA.
  • Implement an evidence based approach to the diagnosis and management of pediatric OSA.
  • Utilize a practical approach to managing a child with persistent OSA after T&A.
