SLEP 1103 Respiratory Modalities for Polysomnography
A course designed to develop knowledge of normal respiratory anatomy and
physiology needed by personnel employed in a sleep lab. Topics covered
include anatomy of the pulmonary system; structures of the chest wall; muscles
of ventilation; blood supply to the lungs; basic physiology of ventilation and lung
mechanics; oxygen therapy; PAP therapy; and patient assessment.
Corequisites: None.
Prerequisites: Admission to the program.
Offered: On demand.
1104 Polysomnography II
A continuation of Polysomnography I. This course will focus on scoring sleep
studies, additional tests performed as as split night studies, multiple sleep latency
testing, maintenance of wakefulness tests, PAP titration studies and others.
Corequisites: None.
Prerequisites: SLEP 1101.
Offered: On demand.
1105 Pharmacology of Sleep
This course is designed to cover basic principles of pharmacology and the
pharmacological actions and effects of different classes of drugs on the body and
how they may impact sleep and the polysomnogram. The focus will be on
analgesics, sedatives, hypnotics, psychotropic medications, alcohol, cardiac
medications and respiratory system drugs. A good knowledge of basic
pharmacology is needed to be able to understand the patient's polysomnogram
and the response to therapy.
Corequisites: None.
Prerequisites: Admission to the Program.
Offered: On demand.
1106 Sleep Disorders
This course is designed to identify the major categories of sleep disorders
according to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders. Assorted sleep
disorders will be discussed and analyzed, including sleep related breathing
disorders, insomnias, movement disorders, parasomnias, hypersomnias and
sleep disorders associated with medical or psychiatric disorders. We will discuss
the signs and symptoms of these disorders, the polysomnographic features of
the disorders and possible treatment options.
Prerequisite: Admission to the program.
Corequisite: None.
Offered: As needed.
1107 Neuroanatomy & Physiology
This course is designed to identify the basic anatomy of the CNS and peripheral
nervous system. We will explore the mechanism of nerve impulse transmission
and the various neurotransmitters involved in impulse transmission. This course
will help students understand the neurophysiology behind the sleep and wake
cycles, and how this may help us in our identification/treatment of various sleep
Corequisites: None.
Prerequisites: Admission to the program.
Offered: On demand.
