The following examples show how
to use the OSA Demonstrator as
an effective teaching tool to show patients the differences between normal breathing and obstructive sleep apnea/snoring. 

If the patient presents:

Hypertrophy of the Adenoids: 
   Insert the dark orange semi-circle
   piece in the indentation at tip of
   blue arrow

Tonsils: Insert the dark orange 
   round piece at the base of the
   tongue. (See semi-circle
   indentation on back for placement)

Elongated Uvula: Slide uvula
   up/down to lengthen/shorten

Fatty Deposits on Base 
   of Tongue:
 Slide tongue toward
   the throat

Swollen Pharyngeal Tissue: Slide
   part forward

Once you have tailored the OSA Demonstrator to mimic the patient’s condition, slide the mandible
forward to show the amount of airway space that is created when
a mandibular repositioning oral
appliance is worn.
