Episode 4
One Approach Does Not Fit All: Examining Sleep Apnea Treatments

Globally, 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.
