Welcome to "Sleep Talking with David Walton", a podcast by Whole You™! David Walton, CEO of Respire Medical LLC, our flagship lab is joined by experts in sleep health medicine, including pulmonologists, ENT doctors, cognitive-behavioral therapists, dentists and more, for an in-depth conversation on the intersection of everyone's favorite pastime and the provocative world of sleep health medicine.
One Approach Does Not Fit All: Examining Sleep Apnea TreatmentsGlobally, the CPAP machine is regarded as the “gold standard” of treatment for sleep apnea patients, yet users are not consistently compliant with the device. Thus, one treatment does not fit all. On this episode, we chat with celebrated ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgeon, Dr. Olivier Vanderveken, to discuss his extensive research on OSA treatments as part of the world-renowned Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium, his advice on how to build important relationships across disciplines, and the future of sleep medicine.
Know the Difference: Sleep Apnea versus NarcolepsyIn the United States, fewer than 200,000 cases per year are diagnosed with narcolepsy, yet this chronic sleep disorder is commonly mistaken with sleep apnea. On this episode, we chat with Dr. Brijesh Malkani, a sleep medicine specialist and neurologist on what makes sleep apnea different from narcolepsy, additional symptoms of sleep apnea that some patients face or are unaware of, and what he’d like others to know about neurology.
Personalizing Sleep Health Care: How Sleep Disorders And Medication (Don’t) MixOn average, 50 to 70 million people in the U.S. experience one or several sleep disorders. On this episode, we explore the importance of tailoring sleep health care for each patient and the effects of prescription medication on patients sleep. This episode’s guests are Dr. Mario Kinsella, an expert pulmonologist with over 41 years of experience, and Dr. John Tucker, a dentist specialized in obstructive sleep apnea with over 37 years of experience.
The Power of Collaboration: A Joint Approach to Treating Sleep Apnea PatientsWhen sleep specialists collaborate, everyone benefits. In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Jonathan Lown, a board-certified physician practicing in sleep, internal medicine, and lipidology, as we recap Whole You™’s 2019 AADSM dinner session and share key insights provided by the session’s five esteemed panelists: Dr. James M. Andry (Pulmonologist), Dr. Olivier Vanderveken (ENT), Dr. Dmitry Lvovsky (Pulmonologist), Dr. Anne D. Bartolucci (Psychologist), and Dr. Jonathan Lown (Internal Medicine).
Topics include: Why it’s important for dentists to collaborate with different disciplines to identify potential sleep disorders beyond obstructive sleep apnea, how to navigate those relationships, and how our panel defines treatment success.
