On the 15th October 2022, SATA held its third annual sleep apnoea patients conference online as a virtual event for its members and NHS staff. While Travel was the main feature, covering all aspects from healthcare to the practical aspects that need taking into account when on the move, the R&D section covered the latest attempts to find alternatives to CPAP therapy. The Q&A session was wide ranging and covered many areas of concern, from CPAP shortages to increased risks of dementia and cancer. This Restless Leg Syndrome (also known as Periodic Limb Movement) was of concern and delegates were directed towards the new section in the Q&As on our website under the Patient Information heading. Members will soon be able to view the Conference recording in the Member’s Area of the website. If you are not a member and wish to see it then click here to join.
