Second Sleep Clinical Core Curriculum Session to Cover the Latest in Non-Invasive Ventilation, PAP, and Long COVID-19


Sleep medicine research continues to advance at the same time providers are integrating evolving best practices. On Monday, May 22, the ATS International Conference will present the second session of its Adult Clinical Core Curriculum – Sleep from 2:15–3:45 p.m. in Hall E (Lower Level) of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. 

Featured presentations include:

  • The Nuts and Bolts of Non-Invasive Ventilation: An Update for Providers in 2023, Morgan Soffler, MD, Westchester Medical Center
  • To PAP or not to PAP: Heart Failure and Sleep Disordered Breathing, Vaishnavi Kundel, MD, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
  • Long Haul COVID and Sleep Disorders, Oragun K. Rojanapairat, MD, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Presenters will characterize various non-invasive ventilation modes and when they should be applied, describe NIV use with heart failure and patients with different types of sleep-disordered breathing, and identify best practices for the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders in patients with long COVID-19.

The goal of the Core Curriculum series is to support clinicians engaged in Maintenance of Certification activities by providing updates on subjects included in recertification requirements. The topics are aligned with corresponding MOC Medical Knowledge modules. This symposium is designed to help clinicians stay up to date with important information relevant to their medical practices and provide clinicians an opportunity to evaluate their knowledge and skills while earning MOC Medical Knowledge points.

This session is worth 1.5 CME credits and 1.5 MOC points. CME certificates of credit/attendance will be awarded based on the participant attending the activity, submitting a completed evaluation, and attesting to the credits earned. A CME certificate will be available upon successful completion of all three components. For MOC points, participants must attend the session(s) and complete the corresponding evaluation and post-test for the activity with a passing score.

The Adult Clinical Core Curriculum – Sleep session chairs will be Shirin Shafazand, MD, MS, ATSF, University of Miami School of Medicine, and Katherine Dudley, MD, MPH, Massachusetts General Hospital.
