It has been six years since the ATS International Conference was last held in Washington, DC, and the world has changed dramatically. We are excited to welcome you back to the nation’s capital for ATS 2023, when we will engage leaders, as well as emerging scientists and clinicians, in passionate discussions of medical breakthroughs and clinical innovation to meet the needs of patients worldwide.
Transgender and gender-nonconforming youth are four times more likely to have a sleep disorder compared to cisgender youth, a Michigan Medicine-led study finds. Researchers also found that those who pursued gender-affirming therapy were half as likely to have any sleep disorder than transgender individuals who did not pursue the therapy, suggesting a possible protective effect.
A survey from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) reveals that most Americans (69%) have lost sleep due to environmental worries. Notably, one-half of those aged 18-24 claim to always, almost always or often lose sleep compared to 10% of Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation.
The American Thoracic Society Research Program today announced the five recipients of Unrestricted Grants for the 2021-2022 grant cycle. These grants support research in critical care pulmonary and sleep medicine, the three pillars of the Society. Each recipient is awarded $40,000 because they rose to the challenge regarding providing novel approaches to how some lung diseases are managed, as well as fostering health care quality and improving patient outcomes.
Prescott Woodruff, MD, MPH, a renowned leader in the pathogenesis and treatment of airway disease, has been appointed chief of UC San Francisco’s Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Sleep Medicine. Prescott will assume the role of chief on July 1.
Scientists pinpoint the molecular epicenter of deep-sleep regulation.
The findings, based on research in mice, identify a gene that makes a protein that regulates delta waves—electrical signals between neurons that occur during the deepest phases of relaxation and are a hallmark of restorative sleep.
New research from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), shows nearly 70% of Americans who sleep with a bed partner report that their partner snores while sleeping. Since snoring can be an indicator of sleep apnea, the AASM is asking Americans to consider, “Is it more than a snore?”
According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), Americans are losing sleep due to the pandemic but not pursuing help at a sleep center. That is why the AASM is educating the public about how visiting a sleep center is safe and effective.
Sleep disorders are associated with significantly higher rates of health care utilization, conservatively placing an additional $94.9 billion in costs each year to the U.S. health care system, according to a new study from researchers at Mass Eye and Ear, a member hospital of Mass General Brigham.
An estimated 50 million people undergo surgery each year in the United States, and a significant proportion of them have undiagnosed or untreated sleep disorders (SD) or sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Issues at the intersection of anesthesiology and sleep medicine are the focus of the Society of Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine (SASM) whose 10th anniversary is commemorated in the special theme May issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many patients are delaying or avoiding care for common, treatable sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia. Putting off needed care for sleep disorders can have negative long-term consequences for overall health and…
n a new survey from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), more than half of parents said they have a child or teenager who does not get enough sleep. To highlight the importance of healthy sleep, the AASM is conducting the first-ever Student Sleep Health Week, Sept. 14-20, 2020.
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that sleep may help people to learn continuously through their lifetime by encoding new memories and protecting old ones.
June 22 observance will drive attention to the lasting symptoms and consequences of chronic insomnia, featuring guidance from experts at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine and American Alliance for Healthy Sleep.
The American Thoracic Society will host the world’s leading scientists and clinicians in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine at the ATS 2020 International Conference (ATS 2020).
