Sleep facilities and home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) programs that are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine must implement the scoring rules in Version 2.2 of the AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events by Jan. 15, 2016.
Two new sections were included in Version 2.2, which was released in July 2015:
• Sleep staging rules for infants
• HSAT rules for adults
Updated annually, the AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events is an online resource offering you multi-platform digital access from your desktop, tablet and mobile device. Subscribers can access the manual via the AASM website or by using the AASM Resource Library app, which is a free download through the App Store or Google play. An annual subscription ensures that you always have immediate access to the current version of the manual, and it enables you to remain compliant with AASM accreditation standards.
