What every sleep technologist should know about behavioral comorbidities 

When two disorders or illnesses occur in the same person, simultaneously or sequentially, they are described as comorbid.  So what challenges do comorbidities present when a sleep technologist is recording or analyzing the results of a sleep study?

Learn more about how behavioral comorbidities affect sleep related breathing disorders in sleep center patients  by viewing this comprehensive lecture by Dr. Richard Rosenberg, Adjunct Faculty at California State University, Long Beach.

In this learning module, Dr. Rosenberg  reviews studies of the association between sleep related breathing and behavioral disorders.  Potential causal relationships and comorbidity effects are postulated. The discussion focuses on known relationships between obstructive sleep apnea, depression and cognitive impairment.
