Audio-Digest Foundation releases Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 42: Sleep Disorders. The program’s goal is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to: treat circadian rhythm sleep disorders with chronotherapy and bright light therapy; prevent and manage shift work sleep disorder; summarize symptoms and pathophysiology of narcolepsy; advise patients on the importance of sleep hygiene and cognitive behavioral treatment for insomnia; and prescribe appropriate medications for patients with wake after sleep onset disorders, secondary insomnias, and restless legs syndrome.
The original programs were presented by Karl Doghramji, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology, and Medicine; Medical Director, Jefferson Sleep Disorders Center; and Program Director, Fellowship in Sleep Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia.
