The COVID-19 pandemic affects various aspects of our daily life. These changes affect indirectly our sleep routine as well, impacting therefore on quality of life. Such changes, that may be part of Long COVID-19, are topics of utmost clinical and epidemiological relevance. They might allow a better understanding of primary and secondary prevention measures under totally new lifestyle circumstances and during the post COVID-19 syndrome. The pandemic has also influenced our clinical practice with regard to diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and titration of positive airway pressure (PAP). This webinar offers the opportunity to learn and discuss what has changed from a hygienic and organisational perspective in administering PAP.
- To give an overview of the impact of COVID-19 on our sleep and how a modified sleep routine may influence our daily habits and quality of life, as well as how the above-mentioned parameters affected after COVID-19 infection
- To discuss strategies to tackle the impact on sleep, daytime symptoms and quality of life.
- To discuss the titration and follow-up of SDB patients who start PAP therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Two presentations followed by panel discussion, with Prof. Sophia Schiza and Prof. Winfried Randerath as moderators.
- Post COVID-19 effects, from sleep to wakefulness.
- PAP therapy during the pandemic: questions and answers.
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify and evaluate the impact of post COVID-19 syndrome in terms of change in daily and sleep routines, as well as of quality of life; primary and secondary prevention strategies; properly administer PAP therapy for SDB during the COVID-19 pandemic.
