Sleepless in a Pandemic: How Sleep Medicine Evolved During COVID-19

Speaker Jessica Schweller, MS, RRT, RRT-SDS, APRN-CNP Date Oct 1, 2020 1:00 PM

As 2020 has progressed, the world of sleep medicine has seen its share of ups and downs during the pandemic. As COVID-19 has impacted the healthcare system as a whole, no one could have prepared for what was to come in the roads ahead, especially for sleep providers and therapists. As RTs, adaptability has been our strong point, and this year has shown the world how our role plays a large part in saving lives. As sleep RTs, preparation for sleep lab closures, new protocols for studies, changing the ways we implement therapy, and the addition of more telemedicine has turned sleep therapy down a course no one could have predicted. This webcast will review some of the highlights that have occurred over the pandemic and discuss some of the changes that are possible because of the strength of RTs working in sleep medicine.

This course is sponsored by an unrestricted education grant from Medline Industries Inc.
