The ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of sleep – interactive workshop covering a range of issues around sleep / wake transitions
Friday 18 October, 0700-0830
Events at sleep onset and sleep offset can often be the subject of some debate in regard to PSG analysis. The aim of this interactive breakfast session is to firstly, discuss the physiological changes which occur, and secondly, apply this knowledge and present screenshots of PSG’s to demonstrate these concepts. Methods to deal with these scenarios will also be discussed. Both adult and paediatric examples will be presented. This interactive course is aimed at Sleep scientists / physiologists and those in sleep medicine with an interest in sleep physiology and PSG interpretation.
- Gain an understanding of the variation in physiology at sleep onset and offset
- Recognise that there may be differences in interpretation of sleep events at sleep/wake and wake/sleep transition
- Identify the transition between sleep and wake related events
