AAN is the American Academy of Neurology, and the meeting was held in Boston, MA, April 22-28, 2017. The AAN Annual Meeting is the world’s largest gathering of neurologists, bringing together more than 10,000 neurology professionals across the globe to network, discuss cutting-edge research, and take part in top-rated educational programming across a wide variety of topics.
Dr. Lynn Marie Trotti gave two talks related to hypersomnia at the AAN meeting:
- “Narcolepsy and Hypersomnia Cases for the General Neurologist”, in a session called “Approaching the Management of Common Sleep Disorders: Case-based Review for the Non-sleep Specialist”
- “Stuck in the MSLT: Challenges in Diagnosing and Treating the Other Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence”, “Sleep for the Practicing Neurologist I: Is It Narcolepsy or Something Else? Diagnostic and Management Challenges in the Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence”
Both are designed for neurologists who are not sleep specialists but who may encounter patients with hypersomnia.
