  • AOCOO-HNS Member Publishes Ophthalmic Textbook

    Posted in Scope Summer 2020 on Jun 23, 2020

    It all began in about 1997. Leo Skorin, DO and two of his colleagues discussed the concept of a more comprehensive ophthalmic manual that expanded on the ones in print at that time. They felt that this type of book, one that is more in-depth but simultaneously easy to use and reference, would fill a much-needed niche. So these three editors-to-be developed and refined their concept. They presented their idea to Wolters Kluwer/LWW (formally Lippincott). The well-known and respected medical publisher agreed to proceed with the project.

    The three editors then gathered authoritative author...

    The AOCOO-HNS Foundation Board of Directors approved a recommendation brought by the Foundation Advisory Committee (FAC). Because of funding cuts within hospitals, Drs. Paul Imber and Jack Alway realized there was a need to support PGY 2 & 3 ophthalmology residents and PGY 3 & 4 otolaryngology residents pay for their continuing education. Drs. Imber and Alway made a presentation to the FAC and asked the FAC to recommend to the Foundation Board of Directors to create a Covid-19 Resident Education Grant. This grant will provide up to $750.00 per resident, towards reimbursing educational expenses...

  • PPP forgiveness changes coming as Senate passes House bill

    Posted in Scope Summer 2020 on Jun 23, 2020

    The U.S. Senate passed the House version of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) legislation Wednesday night, tripling the time allotted for small businesses and other PPP loan recipients to spend the funds and still qualify for forgiveness of the loans.

    The bill passed in a unanimous voice vote hours after Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson initially blocked it. Among the key provisions is a change in the threshold for the amount of PPP funds required to be spent on payroll costs to qualify for forgiveness to 60% of the loan amount.

    The Senate approval sent the House bill, called the Paycheck Protectio...

  • The Role of Prefabricated Thermoplastic Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) in the Therapy of Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

    Posted in Scope Summer 2020 on Jun 23, 2020

    Introduction

    Diagnosis and treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an interdisciplinary matter. In addition to Otorhinolaryngology it includes Internal Medicine, Pneumology, Cardiology, Dentistry, but also Pediatrics and Neurology. The mandibular advancement devices (MAD) are now considered a reliable and non-invasive therapy option in the treatment of habitual snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) (Lit. 1, 2).

    The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has recognized and recommended MAD systems since 2006. The position paper published in 2015 identifies MAD as a first...

    Posted in Scope Summer 2020 on Jun 23, 2020

    The current pandemic represents a colossal medical conundrum involving all aspects of healthcare. We realized early on that the entire global scientific community was attempting to optimize the results of several overlapping, competing, and parallel realities that were all emerging and evolving with differing time signatures. After we had orchestrated all of the evolving data, it became glaringly obvious that a complete paradigm shift was the only way to solve this conundrum. The insight required a refocusing of the problem by turning the efforts backward and recognizing the problem is emergin...
