Hitting Refresh on Excessive Daytime Sleepiness: Managing Patients with Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnia

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Central disorders of hypersomnia such as narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia (IH) can be debilitating as both disorders are characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) which conveys a high degree of disability and burden. While there are safe, effective therapies that promote sustained reduction of symptoms in narcolepsy, there is often a failure to implement them in a timely manner. Moreover, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments for IH, making effective management a challenge. As patients with narcolepsy or IH often experience persistent EDS despite traditional treatment, there is a need for education on identifying and implementing effective novel therapies.

This CME Outfitters webcast features expert faculty will discuss the spectrum of EDS across the subtypes of narcolepsy, strategies to apply data from recent clinical trials to treatment decision-making, and the impact of emerging agents for the management of EDS in patients with IH.

At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Differentiate the spectrum of EDS across the subtypes of narcolepsy (type 1, type 2).
- Apply data from recent clinical trials to treatment decision-making in patients with narcolepsy.
- Evaluate the impact of emerging agents for the management of EDS in patients with IH.
