Webinar: Understanding Nasal Breathing – The key to evaluating and treating sleep disordered breathing in adults and children
About the Presenters
Peter Catalano, MD
Professor of Otolaryngology; Tufts University School of Medicine
Chief of Otolaryngology; St Elizabeth’s Medical Center,
Dr. Catalano received his medical degree from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC. After completing his surgical residency at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and otolaryngology residency at Mt Sinai in NY, he joined the full-time faculty at Mt Sinai in 1990. He then became Chief of Otolaryngology at the Lahey Clinic from 2000-2010, followed by the Chief of Otolaryngology at St Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton, MA (2010 – present).
His focus has been on improving nasal/sinus health and nasal breathing through minimally invasive surgical techniques that he pioneered and are now being used to treat sleep-disordered breathing in adults and children.
John Walker, DMD
Education; Florida State University, BA
College of Dental Medicine of New Jersey, DMD
Boston University Certification of Orthodontics.
Dr. Walker is a Board-Certified Diplomate Orthodontist specializing in craniofacial growth and development. He has had a clinical practice for 35 years in Harvard and Lunenburg, Massachusetts, and Aruba. He has a part-time faculty position at Boston University, Department of Orthodontics. There he has designed the Airway Development program into the specialty of Orthodontics as a medical necessity. He’s also teaching the intervention and treatment of developing early and late-stage breathing issues; UARS, SDB, and OSA.
Dr. Walker is the Symposium Director of Dentistry and Breathing Disorder conferences in Massachusetts and the Caribbean. He was the co-director at Boston University’s annual symposiums on SDB and OSA from (2017-2020); Faculty at FIERO conferences (2017-2019); invited speaker on orthodontics and airway in Dubai and Morocco; and Annual Sleep Summits in Kuala Lumpur (2017-2020).
His publications include 2 private publications for public education, 3 co-authored medical articles with Dr. Peter Catalano on Nasal Breathing.
Dr. Walker’s current interests and teaching include:
– Airway development; Mouth Breathing to OSA – a Progression.
– Search collaboration using computational fluid dynamics in nasal airway pathways, the transport of Nitric Oxide from maxillary and ethmoid sinuses.
His clinical practice uses a 3D iCat Cone Beam and contains a library of 6000+ patients’ treatment history, being used for Orthodontic and Medical research projects.
Treatment of sleep-disordered breathing is addressed to include a focus on various barriers and facilitators for the adoption of such non-PAP treatment approaches that include an innovative approach for nasal sinus surgery.
At the end of this presentation, the attendees will gain an understanding of how the anatomy of the nasal sinus contributes to nasal issues that impact sleep-disordered breathing.
About the Journal Club
The American Academy of Cardiovascular Sleep Medicine (AACSM) virtual Journal Club is an opportunity to discuss current peer-reviewed journal articles with researchers and cardiovascular sleep medicine practitioners. Experts present a review of a current relevant journal article followed by a facilitated engaging discussion with attendees. This is an opportunity for colleagues to learn from other providers about advancements in practice.
