Description

 ​ ​As ​an ​American ​Academy ​of ​Sleep ​Medicine ​Accredited ​ASTEP ​Introductory ​Course ​Provider, ​this ​technical ​certificate ​program ​is ​an ​80-hour ​program ​and ​is ​composed ​of ​didactic ​and ​clinical ​instruction. ​It ​is ​designed ​to ​prepare ​the ​student ​for ​employment ​in ​a ​Sleep ​Disorders ​Center ​as ​a ​Polysomnographic ​Trainee. ​Graduates ​of ​the ​program ​will ​be ​able ​to ​communicate ​and ​interact ​effectively ​with ​sleep ​disorder ​patients. ​Students ​are ​trained ​in ​the ​physical ​and ​physiological ​aspects ​of ​sleep ​disorders, ​familiarity ​with ​the ​different ​sleep ​disorders, ​application ​of ​monitoring ​electrodes ​utilizing ​the ​10-20 ​International ​System ​as ​well ​as ​other ​ancillary ​monitoring ​equipment, ​calibrate ​monitoring ​equipment, ​and ​utilize ​proper ​montage ​and ​protocol ​used ​during ​polysomnographic ​studies.

The ​graduates ​are ​required ​to ​be ​able ​to ​prepare ​the ​patient ​for ​testing ​and ​successfully ​perform ​polysomnographic ​studies, ​familiarity ​with ​EKG ​and ​EEG ​abnormalities ​and ​the ​use ​of ​proper ​documentation ​and ​note ​taking, ​have ​a ​good ​understanding ​and ​be ​able ​to ​administer ​CPAP, ​BiPAP, ​Auto-set ​PAP ​and ​oxygen ​(O2) ​therapy.

 ​

 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​There ​will ​be ​some ​exposure ​to ​the ​scoring ​of ​sleep ​records, ​but ​ability ​to ​achieve ​this ​expertise ​is ​outside ​the ​scope ​of ​this ​curriculum. ​ ​Future ​experience ​in ​the ​field ​and ​additional ​courses ​can ​be ​taken ​to ​achieve ​this ​goal. ​ ​ ​Completion ​of ​this ​course ​is ​essentially ​the ​first ​step ​in ​achieving ​certification ​or ​registry ​in ​sleep ​technology. ​Further ​requirements ​may ​be ​found ​at ​The ​Board ​of ​Registered ​Polysomnographic ​Technologists ​(BRPT ​- ​www.brpt.org) ​or ​the ​American ​Board ​of ​Sleep ​Medicine ​(ABSM ​- ​www.absm.org). ​
