Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes.  In this webinar, Dr. Keenan reviews a recent study on the association between OSA and preeclampsia.

Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of restorative reproductive medicine.  These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Improvements in knowledge and competence will translate into improvements in clinician performance as they use their understanding of research to provide better care and communication to their patients and apply the results from research to clinical practice.

This is part of our RRM Educational Webinar Series aiming to improve both the clinician’s foundational knowledge as well as highlight new research and methods in restorative reproductive medicine.
