Course Description

The tongue truly is the ‘chief architect’ of the face and jaws, and is also intimately related to the autonomic nervous system. The respiratory function is similarly linked to the nervous system and has indirect systemic effects on biochemistry, particularly cellular oxygenation. This session will highlight the links and offer pathways for further learning.


Learning Outcomes (3-5 key takeaways from presentation -- use actions, such as “describe,” “apply,” “integrate”)


Participants will be able to:


  1. Describe the links between the tongue, the airway, the nervous system, respiration and oxygenation
  2. Explain to parents how the tongue is not just important for infant feeding 
  3. Identify some symptoms of dysfunctional breathing in infants
