C72 - Disordered Sleep in Common Neurologic Diseases: Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, and Parkinson’s Disease

Event Time: Sunday May 5, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Sleep, Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology, Movement Disorders, Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): LynnMarie Trotti MD
Description: Sleep disorders are very common in the general population. Patients with neurologic disease have unique vulnerability to disordered sleep, both because specific sleep disorders are more likely to occur as part of certain neuropathology and because sleep disorders can worsen function of already-impaired brains. As a result, it is of the utmost importance that neurologists identify sleep disorders occuring in patients with neurologic disease. In this session, faculty will provide a clinically-relevant, up-to-date review on the identification and management of sleep disorders in three common neurologic disorders: traumatic brain injury, stroke, and Parkinson's disease.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with common sleep disorders and their presentation in patients with traumatic brain injury, stroke, and Parkinson's disease. They should understand the diagnostic and treatment recommendations for these sleep disorders and role of such treatment in improving the health of patients with neurologic disease.
