C28 - Sleep-Disordered Breathing in Neurology Populations: From Lab to Clinic

Event Time: Saturday May 4, 2019 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Topic(s): Sleep
Director(s): Nancy Foldvary-Schaefer DO, FAAN
Description: Sleep disordered breathing encompasses a spectrum of sleep-related breathing disorders with distinctive diagnostic criteria, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment. Sleep disordered breathing is highly prevalent and grossly under-recognized. The impact of these disorders and their treatments on neurological function and outcomes is becoming increasingly recognized. This program will review screening and diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing, relationships between sleep disordered breathing and prevalent neurological disorders, and treatments including advances in positive airway pressure and oral appliance therapy, and the emerging role of neuromodulation.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand how to identify and diagnose sleep disordered breathing in neurology practice; appreciate the spectrum of sleep-related breathing disorders and their variable association with prevalent neurological disorders including epilepsy, stroke, headache, and neuromuscular disease; determine optimal therapies for sleep disordered breathing and the role of hypoglossal and phrenic nerve stimulation for obstructive and central sleep apnea; and discuss the benefits of sleep disordered breathing treatments on neurological outcomes.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Systems-based Practice
