WASM Skills Workshop: Motor Disorders of Sleep

Advanced methods for recording, scoring and interpreting sleep

Developing your skills in using polysomnography for diagnosis and evaluation

for this complicated area of Sleep Medicine

Hands on experience with supervision and learning from world experts in these disorders

Innsbruck, Austria

February 4 - 5, 2011


Motor Disorders of Sleep are seen every day in clinical practice

of sleep medicine. Nevertheless they are often only described

qualitatively and not quantitatively. This workshop will offer

the necessary clinical and practical skills required for advanced

quantitative recording and scoring methods for periodic limb

movements (PLM), and REM without atonia (RWA/RBD). Furthermore,

it will give an overview of clinical features, video

appearance and PSG appearance of other motor disorders of

sleep, and review special clinical techniques for best recording.

Difficulties often encountered will also be reviewed.

Finally, other abnormal motor phenomenona in sleep will be

reviewed for accurate clinical identification .


2 day workshop (with possibility to add a skiing extension)

The practical skills sessions in the sleep lab are done in small

groups up to 4 persons assigned to an individual instructor and

a computer with real polysomnography material from REM

without atonia, RBD, PLMS and other disorders.
