“If you've never been to a CHEST Annual Meeting before, you’re in for a treat. Particularly for sleep medicine specialists—we’re a fun, tight-knit group. There's great networking, as well as a lot of collegiality,” said Dr. D’Ambrosio. “The sessions are robust in that they provide scientific information, but they're also applicable to your day-to-day practice.”

In the Age of Recalls, How Do I Manage These Other Devices?
In light of recent device recalls, it’s essential to stay up to date on developments in noninvasive ventilation and home mechanical ventilation devices. This highly anticipated session will compare the applications of specific devices and modes.

More from Dr. D’Ambrosio: “This session will explore what to do now with all the different devices that are on the market. Despite the recall of some devices, there are many options, and this session will help you determine the best one for your patient.”

Hot Topics in Treatment of Central Sleep Apnea
Get a front row seat as leading experts in sleep medicine debate controversial topics in the field. The program will feature Kara Dupuy-McCauley, MD; Shahrokh Javaheri, MD, FCCP; and Timothy Morgenthaler, MD, FCCP.

More from Dr. D’Ambrosio: “We have a great pro-con debate between giants in this area of sleep medicine. I would consider this session a ʻmustʻ for anyone who sees patients with central sleep apnea."

Women's Sleep Health: An Update on Sleep Disorders in Women
Certain sleep disorders have been thought to solely impact men. Learn about sleep-disordered breathing, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and other diseases in women.

More from Dr. D’Ambrosio: “We will talk about sleep in women because I do believe that there are differences in the sexes and genders. And for many, many years—particularly for obstructive sleep apnea—it's been thought of as a disease for men only. I think we need to keep going with that. What's the latest research? Where are we going forward with therapeutics?”

Traditional Hawaiʻian and Evidence-Based Wellness Practice
This outdoor session will teach techniques like guided imagery, yoga, and the traditional Hawaiʻian practice of Hoʻoponopono.

Insomnia! What to Do if You Do Not Have a Sleep Psychologist Available: A Case-Based Approach
Discover strategies that can be implemented readily by sleep physicians to help patients with insomnia.

More from Dr. D’Ambrosio: “We are going to talk about what to do if you have patients with insomnia and you don't have access to a sleep psychologist. They are few and far between. So, what can we do for these patients?”
