« Got Sleep Apnea? Go Green, as in Green Tea | Main | Insomnia Gets another Nod »

June 02, 2008



I think it is a warning but why?

I'm out of the country, but will respond when I return.

I was fascinated by this discussion when it was first released during the ATS meeting. As a dentist who has been involved with oral appliance therapy for snoring and sleep apnea since the early '90s, I continually wonder why so little mention is made of the option of an oral appliance for those who cannot afford business class (with an electrical outlet for their CPAP units) so must fly in tourist class. For long overnight flights where sleep is essential, a dental device that maintained the mandible in a protruded position would keep the airway patent and be unobtrusive to other passengers. It is also an option for those with OSA (diagnosed or undiagnosed) who snore heavily even during daytime flights.

More information on oral appliance therapy for snoring and sleep apnea and how specially educated and trained dentists can help, please visit and
