Just for info - sleep apnoea congress February in USA
Hello. This is just for interest, the programme for the congress (February, San Francisco) <Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnoea and snoring>.

http://www.ucsfcme.com/2016/MOT16003/Sleep.Apnea.2016.Brochure.pdf

The conference is for healthcare professionals only apparently but the topics show us what sleep docs are thinking about at the moment. And I thought perhaps the contributor list might help USA people on the apnea Board to find a doc if they need one?

Or maybe there's a Board member who is eligible to attend the conference and can then tell all the rest of us what they said?!

RE: Just for info - sleep apnoea congress February in USA
Very interesting. This appears to be a yearly conference and there are more than just USA docs involved. The topics are fascinating and touch on many issues that keep coming up on this forum. It would be fantastic if we have any members who are nurses or doctors in this field who might be attending and then can share the materials. This is because the following agenda topics will be discussed. I list them here for those who can't open or access the link to highlight the importance of these topics for everyone here.
