The Inventor of CPAP, Colin Sullivan is speaking on the emerging role of Dental Sleep Medicine in treating Sleep Apnea

I have just received the following post that Colin Sullivan the inventor of CPAP is speaking in Germany at the Dental Sleep Meeting on the Role of Dental Sleep Medicine.

I have heard an unconfirmed rumor that Colin Sullivan the inventor of CPAP actually wears an oral appliance. I have e-mailed him for confirmation but he has not yet replied.

""Dear All,
Next weekend there will be the 10th symposium on dental sleep medicine of our German Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine DGZS in Bremen, Northern Germany.
You find the program here www.dgzs.de/tagungen.

This year I have invited Prof. Colin Sullivan , the CPAP inventor, for the key note lecture to speak to our DGZS dental sleep professionals.

He gave a great lecture at the Asian Sleep conference last year in Osaka and talked about the emerging role of dental sleep medicine.

I have recommended to the AADSM board to invite Prof. Sullivan for the key note lecture in Minneapolis 2011 J

Best regards

Susanne Schwarting""
