Applied Sleep Medicine - SLEE5107

This capstone unit of study will address the practical application of the knowledge gained from the previous units to provide the student with the skills that will form the basis of future professional practice. Students will become competent in the use of sleep analysis software to interpret and score a variety of brief physiologic recordings in order to develop a working understanding of the polysomnographic features of various clinical syndromes. This will culminate in the scoring and interpretation of all night sleep studies to demonstrate an ability to link the findings to the clinical syndromes. This unit includes a case based review and presentation, and scoring a sleep study under exam conditions.
