FAA Obstructive Sleep Apnea Issues

12-Dec-2013 Source: FAA

On Thursday, December 12, at 12 Noon EST, please join the FAA for a webinar hosted by Fred Tilton, MD, Federal Air Surgeon, who will discuss modifications to the FAA’s sleep apnea policy and processes.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that disrupts an individual’s normal sleep cycle. True to its name, it is caused by obstructions in a person’s airway. It can significantly impact safety because it causes excessive daytime sleepiness and cognitive impairment.

Dr. Tilton invites you to learn more about the modifications to the FAA’s policy on OSA that he recently announced in the Federal Air Surgeon’s Bulletin.

In this webinar, he will –
Review the FAA’s sleep apnea policy;
Discuss the FAA’s sleep apnea special issuance process;
Explain the process enhancements he recently announced; and
Answer audience questions.
