Quick Ideas for Using the Video:

  • Prior to viewing the video, check for student understanding about sleep apnea. Have they heard the term before? Do they know what it means? Do they know why it happens? Then view the video and check for student understanding regarding these same questions.
  • Have students view the video as a patient. After seeing the video, what questions about the device and the surgery would they have for the doctor? Have them compare this sleep apnea treatment to others available. Which would they prefer? Why? How would these potential decisions as a patient influence how they might interact with a patient if they were the doctor?
