Upcoming ATS Meeting in Washington DC

I have been attending the ATS meeting for over 15 years. In my opinion this is one of the great meetings of the year both from an exhibitor standpoint and also as an attendee. I just looked through the online program itinerary and saw a few presentations that I think are a must attend.

Post Graduate Program:

Saturday May 20 8:00 AM- 4:00 PM – Pulmonary Function and CPET- moving from theory to clinical practice

Poster Presentations and Discussions

Sunday May 21 9:15 AM – 4:15 PM – Adverse Affects of Tobacco, Marijuana and Recreational Drugs

Monday May 22 9:15 AM – 11:15 AM – Smokers with Preserved Spirometry Early COPD?

In addition to these presentations I am coming in to Washington a day early to attend Dr Jim Metz full day presentation on the screening treatment and evaluation of sleep apnea patients with OSA, from a dental perspective. I am sure this will be a day well spent.

08:00 AM – 04:00 PM




Room 202 B (South Building, Level 2), Walter E. Washington Convention Center


Session Description

This course will cover the foundation of knowledge about obstructive sleep apnea and clinical signs in the oral cavity and relevant medical history. How to screen patients for oral appliance therapy, and evaluate effective mandibular advancement devices, including titration processes will be addressed as well as treating sleep apnea patients in an interdisciplinary fashion, with alternative treatment modalities.
