Management of REM sleep behavior disorder

Dr. Michael Howell, GUEST

The AASM recently released a new clinical practice guideline that provides recommendations for the management of adults with REM sleep behavior disorder. The guideline provides clinicians with insight on how best to prevent sleep-related injury and how to provide patients with a risk assessment for neurological disease. Here to tell us more about this is Dr. Michael Howell.

Dr. Howell is a Professor and the Vice Chair for Education in the Department of Neurology at the University of Minnesota and dedicated to developing novel strategies to improve brain function and sleep health. Dr. Howell’s research interests include characterizing the relationship between sleep and neurological disorders, and determining whether these processes are reversible with current or experimental therapies.
