The AASM introduces a new webinar for members of the sleep medicine field who use actigraphy in daily practice, or want to learn more. Actigraphy is increasingly used in the evaluation of sleep and circadian rhythm disorders in both clinical care and research.

In the second edition of the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, use of actigraphy is included in criteria for most circadian rhythm disorders and in other conditions. In addition, updated practice parameters regarding the use of actigraphy were published by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in 2007, which provide evidence-based recommendations for the use of actigraphy in the clinical setting. This webinar will review evidence for the use of actigraphy, and will specifically address practical considerations in the use and interpretation of actigraphy by sleep specialists.

Join Cathy Alessi, MD, and Jennifer Martin, PhD, CBSM, for Actigraphy on Tuesday December 2, 2008, at 12:00 p.m. CT.
