Matching Treatment Choice to the Pathophysiology of Sleep

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The neurobiology of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has no identified pathophysiology. This can make it difficult for clinicians to determine a target for therapeutic intervention; therefore, awareness of the mechanisms of action of current and novel therapies is vital when selecting an optimal treatment.

In the second episode of this CME Outfitters podcast series on EDS, expert faculty will focus on identifying key neurotransmitters involved in the sleep-wake cycle and recognizing how therapies targeted to those key neurotransmitters exert their therapeutic effect on EDS in narcolepsy and OSA.

- Learning Objectives -

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate the significance of mechanism of action when selecting optimal treatment of EDS in patients with OSA or narcolepsy.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
- Explain the significance of mechanism of action for selecting optimal treatment of EDS in patients with OSA or narcolepsy.
