3 Free CEUs for Sleep Techs- Overview of Diagnostic Equipment


INTRODUCTION TO DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT FOR THE SLEEP TECHNOLOGIST This self-directed monograph consists of three individual chapters that review the difference between various nasal pressure airflow systems, pulse transit time (PTT) and respiratory inductance plethysmography (RIP), as they relate to the diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing. This three-credit program includes information regarding: nasal pressure transducers; airflow tracings and how they are recorded and evaluated during a sleep study to determine an apnea or hypopnea; pulse transit time in relation to arousals and microarousals; how data are interpreted as related to sleep related arousals and RERAs; the importance and applications of respiratory effort as a measured parameter; and, how to set up, use, clean and score a RIP system.
