The annual information and prevention campaign “If in Doubt – Get Checked Out” will be held on 12-13 November 2017. This initiative has been organized for the sixth consecutive year on the occasion of the Mouth Cancer Action Month – November.

The campaign is organized by the Association of Students of Dental Medicine – Varna, in close cooperation with the Association of Medical Students – Varna (AMS-Varna), the Association of Students of Pharmacy – Varna (ASP-Varna), the Student Council and with the assistance of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at FDM, as well as the Academic Management at the Faculty of Dental Medicine and MU – Varna.

Traditionally, the campaign “If in Doubt – Get Checked Out” consists of an information and prophylactic part. The information part will start with distributing promotional materials on 12th and 13th November 2017.

On 12th November a special stand will be located at Grand Mall – Varna from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

On 13th November the stands at University Hospital “St. Marina” – Varna and the Faculty of Dental Medicine will operate between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., where advertising brochures and flyers will be distributed, too.

Lecturers and students from the Faculty of Dental Medicine at MU-Varna celebrated the World Sleep Day (WSD). The initiative was dedicated to the dangers of sleep apnea and snoring for the second year in a row.

The School of Sleep Apnea answered to questions related to health problems caused by sleep disorder, in the course of that free medical check-ups were carried out as well. The specialists from the School reported that the patients that had been treated over the past year had shown exceptionally good results and the symptoms had been removed or reduced. Moreover, up-to-date equipment from Norway is expected to arrive at the University Dental Center.

Statistical studies show that women sleep 9 hours and 7 minutes per day on average, and men, in whom obstructive sleep apnea is more common, a minute longer. Usually the first more evident signs of the disease are observed in patients between 45-50 years of age, but cases of sleep apnea in younger overweight people are not so infrequent. The clinical picture varies from simple snoring to severe symptomatic form of repeated cessation of breathing during sleep.
