  • Continuing Education: Keeping Your Credentials vs. Pushing to A New Level

    You know I believe in education: I nearly shout it from the rooftops. However, sometimes being educated on the same subject over and over really does not move you forward. Recently, I found a resource that has pushed me out of my comfort zone to a new level of education. Coursera.com allows you to take college classes for free on many different ...

  • Sure Signs of Fall

    With the passing of September 22, fall has officially begun. My family in North Carolina can tell it is here because they are experiencing some very cool temperatures and the turning of those beautiful leaves. No way to miss that. Here in Georgia, we have certain ways to tell when fall arrives too: ragweed is everywhere, the asthma clinic ...

  • ASET Has a Plan for Sleep Techs

    I had the opportunity to attend the ASET conference recently and hear an idea they had on how to bring sleep back into their fold. Since we, as sleep techs, are concerned about the future of our profession, it might be of benefit to take a listen to their idea. There is a large need in the field of long-term monitoring. Although sleep techs ...

  • Conferences, Conferences, Conferences

    It has been a whirlwind of a week again and it's going to be this way for a while. The winds have been howling with all of the usual activity that comes with being the day technologist in a busy lab. Add to that all of the conferences coming up that one must attend. Katie, my pediatric sleep doctor, and I attended the Pediatric Sleep Scoring ...

  • State Sleep Societies Are Here to Grow Our Field

    The AAST recently sponsored the State Leadership Conference in Chicago. This was designed to help the organization to learn from each other and understand important organizational information such as financial planning and publicity.

  • Sleep Tech Attends EEG Meeting, and Benefits

    I have been busy this year attending more conferences than ever before. I may have mentioned that previously.  I've been to FOCUS, GASP and last weekend I was in Atlanta at the ASET conference, which is actually the annual EEG meeting. I felt a little bit like a duck out of water, but my boss suggested I go, so I ...

  • Camaraderie, Information, Education!

    Professional organizations and meetings are becoming so important to us as sleep techs seeking to be recognized as professionals.  How do you decide which organization to join and which meetings to attend?  It's important to know what's happening on all fronts but realistically we can't attend or join them all.  I am a member of ...

  • The Trucking Industry Looks at Sleep

    Those of us who have been in the field for any length of time know that people who drive for a living have a higher than average chance of a sleep disorder. That's why the Sleep Apnea & Trucking Conference being held May 11-12 in Baltimore is so exciting. The conference, organized by the American Sleep Apnea Association and co-sponsored by the ...

  • Sleep Medicine 2010: Change is Good

    If there is one thing that I know from watching this past year it is that those who can embrace change will be the most successful. We have so many changes in the field--some of them worked and some did not-- but all in all it has help us to change into a field of strong professions with a vision of the future. Next year will be bringing even ...

  • The Real Test: Writing BRPT Exam Questions

    If you think that the people who write the BRPT tests are clueless or are trying to trick you, think again. The people who write the test are you and me. The questions are gone over multiple times, trialed and reviewed again. There is science that goes into every question they ask.  But what really blew my mind was how hard it is to ...
