AAST is the leading advocate and the united voice for the sleep technologist profession. AAST supports the interests of sleep technologists by providing legislative support and monitoring government action on both the state and federal levels.
State Sleep Resources
AAST has created an interactive state map that compiles legal and licensure information, CMS requirements, and Sleep Society information specific to each state. Members can review the statutory language for sleep technologists, coverage policies for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and find information about state sleep societies to review their issues and updates. The interactive state map is available to AAST members only.
State Sleep Society Support
AAST is excited to continue to support sleep organizations and their local programming and educational events for the sleep-care profession. This is in alignment with the strategic plan and mission that AAST strives to provide education and advocacy, and lead sleep-care professionals to be the most knowledgeable in the field, resulting in the highest quality of care for patients.
An application has been developed to streamline the process for organizations to request an AAST speaker(s) at your local sleep event. The Board of Directors will use the information provided in the application to evaluate each request and make a recommendation to the Board of Directors. Please expect 30 days to process applications.
As the leader in promoting excellence in sleep technology and quality patient care, AAST has adopted the following position statements regarding the sleep technologist profession:
- Sleep Technology a Distinct Profession
- Scope of Practice for Sleep Technologists
- Core Competencies
- Technical Guidelines
