ENT doctor Madeline Ravesloot for just as famous in Oman

ENT doctor Madeline Ravesloot for just as famous in Oman

Last month, ENT specialist Madeline Ravesloot was in Oman to give a course together with a number of international colleagues: Oman OSA Surgery Course (surgical treatment of sleep apnea). With this she not only reached the Omani newspaper but also the local news on television!

sleep apnea
dr. Ravesloot has been giving presentations about sleep apnea for over eight years, in the Netherlands and abroad. Ravesloot: “The course in Oman required a lot of preparation and time, but it is amazing to be able to give people something that will benefit both doctors and patients. I didn't do this alone. Doctors from Oman, Italy, India and the United Emirates were also present. We focused on indications for certain procedures, techniques, risks and complications.”

Insights and impressions
dr. Ravesloot has gained many new insights and impressions. She says about this herself: “For example, it was interesting to see that in Oman operations against sleep apnea are reimbursed, but a treatment such as the upper pressure mask is not. And this while the most evidence exists for such a treatment, which supports breathing. The country itself is beautiful and has an interesting history. The people are incredibly hospitable and you can enjoy delicious food.”

Media attention
The ENT doctor does not know why there was so much media attention for this course. The course was officially opened by the Omani Minister of Health. In addition to being the only course on this subject in Oman, there were many participants from both national and international origins.
