The Breathe Course (In-person) with Dr. Soroush Zaghi, ENT/Sleep Surgeon + Breathe Surgical Laser Course in collaboration with ALSC

June 8, 2022 - June 11, 2022

For More Information Contact: Courses@thebreatheinstitute or (310) 579-9710 x516.

Key learning objectives:

  • The BIG picture
  • Patient selection based on research
  • When to consider a revision frenuloplasty and when not to consider
  • Compensations of restricted tongue mobility
  • Differential diagnostic skills to be able to assess optimal treatment
  • Evaluation of tongue space vs tongue-tie
  • NEW Functional Classification Grading Scale

New course content will also incorporate new additional content including:

  • Healthy Immune System & Nervous System
  • Innate Immunity
  • Adaptive Immunity
  • Best Practices in Telemedicine
  • Introduction to Research and Multi-Center Research Opportunities
  • TBI Hub Sleep Study Screening Support for TBI Ambassadors

There will be a live frenuloplasty surgery and a 2 hour wet-lab hosted by the ALSC.

A good surgical laser for cutting soft tissue must be able to vaporize soft tissue, while at the same time efficiently coagulating surgical margins. Not all laser wavelengths are suitable to comply with both requirements. This course focuses on the practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery and on the fundamental processes involved in the laser-tissue interaction; it helps attendees learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins. Our hands-on participation lab is designed to train attendees on what surgical lasers can do safely and efficiently. The Laser Surgery and Safety Basic Knowledge Certification Curriculum for this Course were developed by the American Laser Study Club (ALSC). The ALSC’s curriculum overcomes the known limitations of many laser dentistry courses and includes the detailed physics of soft tissue ablation and coagulation with laser and hot tip (non-laser) devices. The hands-on laser wetlab on tissue samples will include laser safety instructions, frenectomy simulations and other surgical laser procedure demonstrations. Laser instructions will be assisted by the guest speaker Peter Vitruk, PhD, MInstP, CPhys, a laser physicist who founded the American Laser Study Club and LightScalpel Inc.
