Ask Dr. Park Teleseminar on Obstructive Sleep Apnea

In this Ask Dr. Park Teleseminar, I answer the following questions:

– I’ve had my CPAP machine for 5 years. Should I undergo another sleep study to see if anything has changed?

– Does palatal expansion work for people over 60?

– What do you think about Provent therapy?

– Is it possible to have a dental device lose its’ effectiveness without any weight gain?

– What’s your vision in the multidisciplinary approach to OSA treatment and comorbididies?

– Will restorative breathing correct OSA cases previously recommended for surgery?

– Can sleeping on your side be OK for sleep apnea?

– A recent Chinese study reported OSA in 27% of 5 to 12 year olds. In view of the obesity epidemic here in the US, is the incidence here in the US at least as high, if not higher?

– Should a person’s stuffy nose be addressed before OSA therapy?

– Does CPAP create “dependence,” so that surgical options later on may not work as well due to a weakened diaphragm  or other muscles for breathing?

– Your opinion on the new implants (Pillar and hypoglossal nerve stimulation)

– Does sleeping on a 45 degree incline help with obstructive sleep apnea?

– What can be done to reduce the number of “getups” each night?

– What percentage of OSA is due to tongue collapse (vs. soft palate)?

And much, much more.

  1. I mentioned it above, and I thought I’d mention it here too. I couldn’t get Lois Layne’s talk after April 3 on the link you sent me.

    Thanks so much for these teleseminars. I love them, and they are so helpful for me.

  2. Hi,

    I would like to buy the MP3 of today’s talk since I might not be able to listen in at 8pm. However, the link doesn’t seem to work. Is there another way I can purchase it at the discounted price of $5?

    Thanks so much!
    Irene

  3. Dr Park,

    Please don’t take offense but why on earth are you selling these mp3 files when they might be very valuable in helping millions of sick people. I’m not understanding your motivation or the approach of selling this material since you’re a doctor, full time. Please elaborate when you have a chance. Thank you.

  4. Natasha,

    No offense taken. I’m glad you asked. To be able to maintain my website, write the blogs and articles, as well to produce my monthly live teleseminar programs, I need to be able to at least break even and pay for the overhead. This includes hosting, and domain fees, stock photo fees, virtual assistant, media storage fees, autoresponder programs, and numerous other fees that do add up. Plus I estimate I spend about 3 to 5 hours every week with my online activities. This is on top my my role as a full-time academic surgeon in a busy metropolitan practice, as well as time needed to spend with my family.

    The content that’s generated is copyrighted material that my publisher owns and has the rights to, and is sold at a nominal cost to people who truly value their health and are willing to make a small investment. The interview itself is always free to listen to during the live program. Additionally, my expert interviews have always been free to download afterwards.

    Hope this answers your question.
