PSG-103 Polysomnography Scoring

This course provides a solid foundation in the principles, techniques, and concepts related to polysomnographic scoring. The course covers the fundamental concepts of sleep staging; arousal recognition and scoring, and event scoring for respiratory, limb, and cardiac events. The course outlines the standard scoring practices currently in use. Clinical judgment is always necessary, both when scoring and interpreting polysomnograms. Therefore, students are encouraged to stay abreast of changes in the field, including updated practice parameters and newly published standards and guidelines. The quality of the interpretation of the polysomnogram students record has much to do with their ability to understand and accurately score the recording.

Advisory: It is strongly recommended that students successfully complete PSG-200: Clinical Fundamentals of Polysomnography and PSG-105: Clinical Patient Management or have prior polysomnographic clinical experience before registering for this course.
