This course will develop a foundational understanding of the concepts surrounding sleep and sleep breathing disorders, by providing learners with an introduction to the history of sleep, the anatomy, physiology and neurobiology of sleep, as well as insight into the pathophysiology and treatment of respiratory and non-respiratory sleep disorders in adult and paediatric populations.
This course consists of 6 modules and a final exam. Each module includes approximately 5 lectures of duration ranging from 20-60 minutes followed by a 30-minute quiz.
Assumed high-level knowledge is not a requirement as anyone who has completed a high school level of education can take this course. However, those with a tertiary-level background in anatomy and/or physiology may find some elements of the course easier than those without.
