This symposium was uniquely designed by course directors Sunil Sharma, MD and Paul Mather, MD to focus on the complex interplay between sleep, heart and the lungs.

Appropriately managing these related disorders using a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach can reduce recurrent admissions for patients with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obesity hypoventilation syndrome and pulmonary hypertension.

Specialty physicians, hospitalists, nurses and allied health professionals in cardiology, pulmonary medicine, internal medicine and primary care will find practical strategies for improving patient care and outcomes through presentations from recognized experts, interactive panel discussions and  hands-on learning.

American Thoracic Society president, Atul Malhotra, MD will deliver the keynote lecture on Adaptive Servo Ventilation therapy. 

Topics from Jefferson faculty include:

  • Reducing heart failure readmission 
  • Heart and sleep disorder controversies
  • COPD/asthma and sleep
  • Obesity hypoventilation syndrome
