Let's try and answer THOSE questions: challenging aspects of paediatric respiratory sleep medicine

This day-long postgraduate short course from Sleep Week in 2020 offers a diverse range of presentations on key challenges involved in paediatric respiratory sleep medicine. An international panel of speakers will present on a range of topics relating to different aspects of sleep disordered breathing and ventilation in infants and children. The course will discuss controversial areas specific to paediatrics, such as the limitations of gold standard PSG monitoring, management of persistent OSA when CPAP fails and ethical issues around respiratory support in children with complex medical conditions. There will be the opportunity to interact with the speakers throughout the course, with case discussions utilised to illustrate key points and stimulate discussion areas.

This course is intended for pediatricians, sleep clinicians, sleep scientists/technicians, ENT surgeons, nurses, fellows, students and anyone involved in the management of infants and children with sleep disorders.
