Human circadian rhythms play a significant role in our everyday lives. And they have a very specific influence on our children. Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in children is the root cause for many abnormalities. This course discusses those anomalies, including etiology, research, adverse neurobehavior outcomes, and treatment.
The learner will be able to:
- Explain the role and function of the human circadian rhythm
- Outline the problems of sleep deprivation in adolescents
- Review the data regarding delayed school start times in HS students
