Is There a Link Between Diabetes and Sleep Apnea?
The training session held on Friday, March 3, at Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters offered information on how to recognize common sleep disorders in diabetes, the bi-directional relationship between sleep disorders and diabetes and the association between obstructive sleep apnea and diabetes, and the effect of obstructive sleep apnea on glycemic control. 

The educational session also highlighted snoring rules and guide lines that are used to determine breathing events during sleep and clinic tools that are used to scan patients for sleep issues.

In addition, the training seminar focused on describing the best CPAP mask and the five rules to help with CPAP mask fitting to prevent certain issues.
