Advanced PSG Scoring Course and Workshop

The Advanced Polysomnography Workshop is a two-day course designed to provide health professionals with broader and advanced knowledge and skills to effectively analyze and score unusual PSG manifestations. This is useful for individuals who aim to develop their expert skills in artifact correction, troubleshoot technical problems, scoring and interpreting sleep studies.

This course will equip participants with advanced skills to score and interpret:

  • Sleep Stages
  • Respiratory Events
  • EEG Arousals
  • Periodic Limb Movements
  • EMG and other movement disorders
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Test and Maintenance of Wakefulness Test
  • Polysomnography Hypnogram

Practical sessions will follow after each lecture through the use of record samples based or patterned from patients encountered.

Target Audience:

  • Sleep Technicians
  • Respiratory Therapists
