Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week 2008, October 6 to 12, recognizes the valuable contributions of the allied health-care professionals who assist in the evaluation and follow-up care of patients with sleep disorders.

Sponsored by the American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST), Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week 2008 will be recognized across the country by special events held at sleep disorders centers and laboratories for sleep-related breathing disorders. Sleep technologists work under the supervision of a licensed physician, providing assistance in assessing, monitoring and testing patients to evaluate, manage and prevent sleep-related disorders.
