(Honolulu, HI) Do you suffer from high blood pressure? You’re not alone. In Hawaii, more than thirty percent of the adult population currently suffer from high blood pressure, and that number is rising. With more than ten percent remaining undiagnosed, the dangers of cardiovascular disease in Hawaii are on the rise. Many suffers of high blood presser are also silently suffering with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Sleep Group Solutions heads to Hawaii to train three dental offices on their turnkey dental sleep medicine protocol and treatment plan.
“It was exciting to go to Hawaii to install and educate on the SGS protocol for a few Honolulu doctors.” says Henry Armstrong, a Sleep Group Solutions Educator. Three dental offices were trained including, Dr. Azuma, Dr. Teramoto, and Dr Tamura, which are all in the greater Honolulu area. “With high blood pressure such a dominant presence in many doctors offices in Hawaii, it was exciting to offer them a solution to alleviate these issues.” High blood pressure is commonly found in patients suffering with OSA, and treating the OSA may also help to lower blood pressure.
Sleep Group Solutions hosts 2-day sleep seminars to teach dentists and staff members how to recognize sleep apnea in the dental office, and also to provide solutions with oral appliances. With Hawaii having such a large population of adults who suffer from high blood pressure, treating the patients sleep apnea is likely to alleviate the hypertension.
