Clayton Sleep Institute (CSI) is sponsoring a course titled “Topics and Case Studies in Advanced Pediatric Sleep Medicine.”

Attendees will learn key diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and strategies for the practice of pediatric sleep medicine through personalized, one-to-one instruction from faculty who are national leaders in sleep medicine. The course will be led by course master Stephen H. Sheldon, DO, FAAP, and co-course master Joseph M. Ojile, MD, DABSM, FCCP.

“We’re very proud to host this course,” said Ojile, CEO and founder of the Clayton Sleep Institute. “I especially enjoy the personalized instruction that attendees will receive at this event. Respected physicians from all over the country come to St Louis to discuss some of the most pressing issues involving advanced pediatric sleep medicine.”

The conference is approved for 10.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. By the end of the sessions, the learner will be able to obtain age-appropriate history and conduct an age-appropriate physical examination. They will also be able to establish a comprehensive differential diagnosis for the child who presents to the practitioner with problem sleeplessness, sleepiness, and symptoms suggestive of parasomnias. Attendees will learn how to create an appropriate environment for obtaining optimal data during polysomnography in infants and children and how to determine when comprehensive polysomnography is indicated in the pediatric population.

The event takes place on April 21-22, 2012 at the Clayton Sleep Research Foundation Conference Center in St Louis.
