Wake up: Modern Strategies to Recognize and Combat Sleepiness in Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnia - A Virtual Grand Round Series
In this 60 minute session, the freedom of virtual learning will allow one of 6 renown sleep specialists to visit your local community sleep clinic or freestanding neurology practice. Using survey data from experts regarding their preferred strategies in clinical scenarios and their thoughts on complicated questions (e.g., "is it clinically meaningful to distinguish narcolepsy type 2 and idiopathic hypersomnia"), presenters will work with your entire team to refine and enhance its management skills in patients with sleep disorders.
- Common pitfalls in the workup and diagnosis of narcolepsy and IH
- Therapeutic strategies (individual and combination) for patients with narcolepsy (types 1 and 2), and IH
- Emerging agents for narcolepsy and IH
- Examine published data sets documenting the variable frequency and clinical characteristics of narcolepsy type 1 (NT-1), narcolepsy type 2 (NT-2), and IH to improve condition differentiation and timely diagnosis.
- Identify the biologic mechanism underlying the overlapping effectiveness of traditional and low sodium oxybate in patients with NT1-, NT2-, and IH-associated EDS, and use this information to identify individuals that may be appropriate candidates for their use.
- Describe the mechanisms of action and clinical profiles of recently approved therapeutic strategies for EDS secondary to narcolepsy to discern how and for whom these agents can be effectively and safely prescribed.
- Discuss the impact of comorbidities/coexistent medical conditions in patients with EDS secondary to narcolepsy and IH on the long-term management of these populations.
