This month's Journal Club is #38: Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders. This module provides a wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Katherine Sharkey from Brown University that includes her work with the AASM Practice Parameters Task Force and the recent update of the guidelines for treatment.
Our Case of the Month is#9: Pediatric Patient with Limb Movements. This pediatric case involves a young male patient with restless sleep, periodic limb movements and a few central apneas. The module reviews standard recording techniques for children including end-tidal CO2 measurement, as well as the scoring of pediatric sleep studies. Diagnostic criteria for pediatric restless legs syndrome are discussed, as well as comorbidities, effects of psychotropic medication and treatment alternatives.
