Vanderbilt University

Dr. David Kent is an Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Director of Sleep Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Kent is one of only a few otolaryngologists in the US with formal fellowship training and board certification in Otolaryngology and Sleep Medicine. His primary academic interests lie in the neurophysiology of the upper airway, with a focus on mechanisms for control of breathing in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and their application towards novel OSA treatments. He has investigated the clinical efficacy of hypoglossal nerve stimulation therapy and the utility of drug-induced sleep endoscopy in the management of OSA. Dr. Kent has also received research support from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and NIH to explore ansa cervicalis stimulation, a novel neurostimulation therapy for OSA first proposed by his team. In collaboration with colleagues in bioinformatics, he has also developed techniques for objective phenotyping of the upper airway and applications for machine learning in polysomnography scoring. He has been invited to speak in multiple academic settings regarding novel therapies for the management of OSA and the application of artificial intelligence to Sleep Medicine. He is previously a member of the AASM’s Artificial Intelligence Task Force and was recently Chair of the AASM’s Surgical Guidelines for OSA in Adults Task Force, responsible for updating the professional organization’s national guidelines for sleep clinicians regarding surgical therapies for OSA.
