Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and narcolepsy are sleep disorders associated with high prevalence and symptomatic burden including prominent sleepiness, daytime dysfunction, and poor nocturnal sleep. Both OSA and narcolepsy have an elevated risk of adverse health outcomes. Diagnosis of narcolepsy is often challenging and encompasses clinical, electrophysiological, and biological evaluations. The causes of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in OSA may not all be related to the OSA, and EDS may remain even with high use of CPAP. Current therapies for adults with narcolepsy are often underutilized, and agents using novel mechanisms to treat targeted symptoms such as EDS in OSA and narcolepsy are in development. This program will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of narcolepsy and EDS in OSA. Format will consist of state-of-the-art lectures and debates.
