Description: The symposium is intended to address some of the main challenges in sleep medicine today. Current sleep diagnostic tools and measurements show room for improvements using new technology and approaches. Knowing who to treat and how technology can be used to maximize clinician impact on more patients’ lives are topics which will be addressed. Those interested in new approaches in diagnostics and how we can continue to evolve sleep medicine should find this symposium of interest. Dr. Allan Pack has chosen to donate his honorarium to the Helgi Kristbjarnarson Memorial Fund, to support promising students and researchers within the fields of sleep research and sleep technology.
