This workbook, intended to complement the second edition of Fundamentals of Sleep Technology, is specifically designed to meet the educational needs of teachers, students, and practitioners of sleep technology. The workbook focuses on both essential theoretical information and practical skills that everyone involved with the profession of sleep technology is required to know. We hope that this workbook will serve as a useful learning tool for working sleep technologists as well as for those studying for registry examinations.
The workbook is written by and for sleep technologists and includes numerous exercises and discussion questions to expand the knowledge of the learner. Content focuses on testing processes and data analysis, basic anatomy and physiology, normal sleep, and sleep disorders in adult and pediatric patients. Many discussion questions include references to relevant published research and other scientific papers.
Ongoing changes in definitions, sleep scoring criteria, practice guidelines, regulatory policies, and emerging technology continue to significantly transform the neuroscience of sleep as well as the clinical practice of sleep medicine and technology. All efforts have been made to update material that has changed since the textbook was published. Significant changes to material in this workbook will be posted in the companion eBook version, where videos, presentations, and modular learning tools will also be made available for workbook users.
The editors extend their appreciation and thanks to all the authors of this workbook with special thanks to Dr. Richard Rosenberg, whose expertise and experience proved invaluable to this project. We also thank Katelyn Fullerton, AAST Coordinator; John Noel, AAST Specialty Society Manager; Andrea Vosburgh, Product Development Editor at Wolters Kluwer Health; and the Board of Directors of the American Association of Sleep Technologists for their support throughout this process.
