The goal of this program is to improve management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Recognize patients at risk for OSA on the basis of patient history and clinical findings.
2. Discuss consequences of untreated OSA.
3. Identify patients with OSA who may benefit from treatment.
4. Implement strategies to overcome barriers to CPAP adherence.
5. Counsel patients about alternatives to CPAP therapy.

The original programs were presented by Jeremy I. Tabak, MD, Medical Director, Baptist Hospital Sleep Laboratory and Baptist Sleep Center at Galloway, and Pulmonologist (Critical Care and Sleep Medicine), Baptist, Doctors, Mariners, and South Miami Hospitals of Baptist Health South Florida, Miami. Christopher J. Lettieri, MD, Professor of Medicine, Uniformed Services University, Assistant Deputy Commander for Medicine, and Program Director, Sleep Medicine Fellowship, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD.
