This lecture reviews the circadian rhythm disorders covered in the 2013 ABMS sleep medicine exam. Dr. Richardson defines circadian rhythms and the effect that light has on the circadian rhythms. He also reviews each of the major circadian rhythm sleep disorders: time-zone disorder, shift-work sleep disorder, delayed sleep phase, advanced sleep phase, non 24-hour disorder and irregular sleep/wake pattern.
The Sleep Medicine Board Review Course provides a broad review of sleep medicine, presented by an expert faculty of basic researchers, academicians and clinicians at the forefront of the field. All topics covered mirror the ABMS sleep medicine examination content areas. The course includes a mixture of didactic modules on basic sleep mechanisms and evaluation of polysomnograms, case-based lectures on the entire range of sleep disorders in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, Second Edition and question-based presentations.
