About A2Zzz

A2Zzz is published in the last month of each quarter and is the official publication of AAST. A2Zzz began in 1978 as Sleepwatchers before changing names to The Journal of Polysomnographic Technology and then to A2Zzz. The publication presents educational information for the professional development of sleep technologists and sleep technicians who assist in the evaluation and follow-up care of patients with sleep disorders.


AAST members receive a complimentary online subscription to A2Zzz as a benefit of membership. A2Zzz is an online-only publication.

A2Zzz CEC Offering

AAST members can read the quarterly publication of A2Zzz to earn continuing education credits (CECs) that are required for recertification by the BRPT. To earn credit carefully read the four designated CEC articles and claim your credits as a members-only benefit in your Learning Center. You must go to your Learning Center to claim your credits by the deadline stated within each issue of A2Zzz to earn CECs.

A2Zzz CEC Statement of Approval

This activity has been planned and implemented by the AAST Board of Directors to meet the educational needs of sleep technologists. The BRPT has approved this activity and designates it for a maximum of 2.0 hours (0.5 per article) of continuing education. Each technologist should only claim credit for the time that he or she actually spends in the educational activity.

A2Zzz CEC Confirmation

A confirmation letter awarding AAST CECs will be available in your Continuing Education Transcript once credit has been claimed. It is the responsibility of each technologist to maintain a record of his or her CEC certificates. The AAST also validates AAST CECs as a free benefit for members.
