An editorial in the Feb. 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine by Dr. Ronald Chervin and Dr. Kelly Carden explains the history and rationale behind the recent release of the AASM Style Guide for Sleep Medicine Terminology. Developed by the AASM to promote clarity and consistency in the field of sleep medicine through the use of standardized language, the free guide is available in the Resource Library on the AASM website as an ebook and PDF file. The AASM encourages all members to adopt these terminology usage recommendations in lectures, meeting abstracts and proposals, journal submissions, and other forms of communication.
