Intro to IBT for Orofacial Myofunctional Therapists - LA 27 April - 1 day course
Many individuals with mouth breathing, poor upper airway function and some types of sleep disordered breathing also have dysfunctional breathing. In these individuals breathing retraining may be necessary to achieve optimal outcomes from orofacial myofunctional therapy.

- Defining and using the multidimensional model of dysfunctional breathing.
- Review of key evidence based breathing therapies and clinical applications.
- Upper airway- nasal, oral and pharyngeal contribution to breathing dysfunction
- The autonomic nervous system and the upper airway
- Functional aspects of common nasal dysfunctions
- Structural, functional and neurological consequences of mouth breathing
- Nasal rehabilitation strategies and protocols
- Understanding the links between breathing pattern and upper airway muscle function.
- Anatomical and physiological phenotypes in sleep disordered breathing
