The goals of this program are to improve management of hypersomnolence and prevent sequelae of inadequate sleep. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Identify symptoms associated with narcolepsy, such as sleep paralysis and cataplexy.
2. List side effects of medications used to treat excessive daytime sleepiness.
3. Evaluate behaviors that may be associated with episodic hypersomnolence.
4. Counsel patients about consequences of acute and chronic sleep loss.
5. Recognize the association between inadequate sleep in health care providers and the commission of medical errors.
The original programs were presented by Timothy L. Grant, MD, Medical Director, Baptist Sleep Center at Sunset, and Neurologist, Baptist and South Miami Hospitals, Miami, FL, and Christopher J. Lettieri, MD, Professor of Medicine, Uniformed Services University, and Program Director, Sleep Medicine Fellowship, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD.
