Program Description

Sleep research is a dynamic, ever-evolving field, with a wealth of recent literature related to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), narcolepsy, excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), and other sleep-related disorders. The Keeping Up With Sleep Journal Club selects key articles and shares expert commentary on them, giving learners an educational tool that helps translate emerging knowledge into improvements in clinical care. This issue reviews the association between sleep disorders and dementia, the potential for machine learning to assist in narcolepsy diagnosis, and diagnostic criteria for respiratory events, as well as the role of EDS in OSA.
