Airway Revolution Videos

A key initiative of the Airway Revolution Foundation is to create media that changes the world one breath at a time. We've been filming for over four years to capture compelling material for our documentary, Airway: The Battle to Breathe.  Here, we provide clips from the Airway documentary and our other videos for you to discover and learn more about how the airway affects your life.

Airway Documentary

The story of the airway and Sydney's journey as she fights the battle to breathe.  Insidious and complex airway challenges are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and untreated.  Here are some clips from the documentary still in production.

Airway Seminar

The Airway Revolution Foundation presented an educational seminar for speech and occupational therapists in late 2021, sponsored by the Sensory Studio, called Critical Connections: a Multi Disciplinary Collaboration about Airway Disorders.  This seminar featured awesome airway disorder experts: Sydney Avis, Dr. Victor Avis, Lisa Paladino, NP., Dr. Steven Park, Dr. Amy Raccanello, and Dr. Scott Siegel. 
Notice: This is cutting edge material.  In these videos, you will be immersed in life-changing information and an approach to medicine that is still not taught in many dental/medical schools.  You may end up knowing more than your own professors, doctors, or dentists.
