Pediatric Polysomnography:A Master's Class for Pediatric Providers in the PSG Laboratory
Pre-registration is required by 3:00 pm (EST), November 30, 2021
This course is targeted towards health care providers and technicians seeking a more advanced, but still practical approach to sleep study procedures and interpretation in infants, children and adolescents. Highlights include diagnosis and management of infant sleep disordered breathing, management of disorders of congenital central hypoventilation, use of PAP masks and other equipment in pediatric populations to optimize adherence, best practices for use of polysomnography and multiple sleep latency to diagnose pediatric hypersomnia disorders, and the role and use of HFNC (high flow nasal cannula) in treating pediatric sleep disordered breathing.
Intermediate to advanced sleep medicine specialists, fellows, psychologists, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, polysomnography technicians and technologists, respiratory therapists.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
- Discuss current understanding and best practices for infant apnea evaluation and management
- Identify effective respiratory management for children with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome and other central hypoventilation syndromes
- Select PAP masks and other equipment that work best for promoting successful PAP use in children in a variety of clinical situations and comorbid conditions
- Identify best strategies, limitations and practical approaches to PSG and MSLT protocols for diagnosing pediatric narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia
- Describe best practices for use of HFNC (high flow nasal cannula) in the treatment of pediatric sleep disordered breathing
