Sleep disorders and cardiovascular morbidities

The Heart Research Centre, in Melbourne is organising a 'Sleep disorders and cardiovascular morbidities' one day training course on Thursday 19 March 2015.

Training booklet information:
Sleep disorders and cardiovascular morbidities
Sleep disorders in cardiovascular patients are widely undiagnosed or even dismissed as a natural part of life. Recent research has shown that they considerably increase the risk of
coronary disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, depression and hospital readmission. Untreated sleep disorders substantially impede rehabilitation.
We focus on three common sleep disorders: Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), insomnia, and snoring.

Topics include:
Sleep disorders and their medical consequences
How common are sleep disorders?
Snoring's effects on partners
Screening and testing for sleep disorders in clinical practice
Treatments for sleep disorders
Where to send patients for further sleep treatment
Practical, inexpensive self-help techniques
Integrating sleep into cardiac rehab programs.
