Differentiators When Choosing Novel Treatment Options for EDS

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Reducing excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is an important treatment goal for patients with narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In order to achieve reduced EDS, cataplexy and sleep paralysis/hypnagogic hallucinations must be controlled to improve disturbed nighttime sleep, which then improves fatigue and brain fog and reduces psychosocial dysfunction, therefore improving quality of life (QoL). The latest efficacy and safety data should be reviewed, and considerations for treatment selection - especially in refractory patients, children, the elderly, or pregnant patients - must be taken into account.

This CMEOCast podcast focuses on developing personalized, effective strategies to reduce EDS in patients with OSA or narcolepsy, including an overview of data on incorporating the use of safer, lower sodium alternatives to mitigate EDS without imposing cardiovascular burden.

- Learning Objectives -

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply efficacy and safety data to treatment decisions for EDS in patients with OSA or narcolepsy to improve QoL and functioning.
