On Monday June 13, James O’Brien, MD, FCCP, FAASM, will present a case study on patients with chronic pain.

Dr. O'Brien has been practicing medicine for almost 40 years and first became involved in sleep medicine over 30 years ago.

During that time, he came to realize that patients with both common medical problems and untreated sleep disorders were far more complicated to manage successfully when compared to his patients who had medical problems without sleep issues. These early and dramatic patient care experiences shifted his medical focus towards treating sleep disorders and concentrating on the importance that achieving normal sleep can have on a patient's overall health and wellness.

Dr. O'Brien received his medical degree from New York Medical College and is currently board-certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine and sleep medicine.

Here is what Dr. O'Brien will present during Monday's general session on June 13 from 3:15pm - 4:15pm

Case Study - Patients with Chronic Pain

Objectives:

  1. Review the relationship between chronic pain and sleep.
  2. Discuss the effect of pharmaceuticals used for pain on sleep.
  3. Discuss advanced therapies for patients with chronic pain.
