ASTA/ASA Commentary on AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events (Dec 2010)
ASTA/ASA Addendum to AASM Guidelines for recording and scoring of paediatric sleep (April 2011)
This document provides additional guidelines and recommendations for the recording and scoring of sleep and associated events for paediatric polysomnography being performed in Australasian sleep laboratories. These guidelines are intended for full channel, attended polysomnography in the clinical setting and should be used in conjunction with the 2007 AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events. While they don't specifically cover unattended, community or limited channel studies, they may still prove a useful reference for those types of sleep study.
