Oventus O2Vent: A New Treatment Modality
October 2, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
In this webinar, Dr. Hart will offer information about new advancements in the management of the airway for sleep apnea, utilizing mandibular advancement with positive expiratory end pressure valves that stabilize the pharyngeal pressure swings.
Dr. Chris Hart, leading Queensland, Australia dentist, is the inventor of the O2Vent™. Dr. Hart, himself diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, was anxious to find a therapy that he could tolerate to treat his own sleep apnea. Using his expertise as a dentist, he envisioned an oral appliance that could bypass his obvious obstruction occurring in his nose to allow an oral device to be used. He approached the CSIRO with the idea to develop a bespoke appliance that could help sufferers of sleep apnea who shared intolerance to CPAP and other oral appliances. The result is the O2Vent – a ground-breaking oral appliance that is poised to revolutionize the sleep apnea market.
As Founder, Executive Clinical Director of Oventus, Chris is overseeing the development, clinical research and marketing launch of the O2Vent in Australia, the USA and soon in Europe and China. Chris graduated from the University of Queensland in 1998 with a Bachelor of Dental Science with Honors and a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. He has studied at Cambridge University where he graduated with a Master of Philosophy in Biomedical Science in 1999.
