Hello! We're new around here...we're a sleep lab in Scottsdale, AZ with 4 beds. I'm a RN working at the lab and we also have a RPSGT who will be making posts. We'll comment more once we figure this site out! =)

Sleep professional with sleep apnea.
To other sleep workers. I find self treatment or advice difficult. When I am with a patient algorithms play 90 to nothing in my head. When it comes to sleep or apnea issue for me everything stops. I go straight to mortality and co morbidity.

I have been eligible for my boards since May, but been trying to come up with the funds... between vacation and back to school stuff, looks like I'm finally going to be sitting for them in December as well.

Wow... glad so many people have joined. I have not been real active, but did just change my email address to my work address... so I will actually see my emails now. I've been an RT for over 25 years, will have my 1 year anniversary in the sleep lab in about 3 weeks... I tease my patients that I am the walking text book of sleep disorders... I have them all :) I've done hospitals, rehab and homecare before starting at the sleep lab. I am excited that we are expanding this next month to become a 4 bed lab, so I will have people to bounce stuff off from. Glad to see you all here!

I am an RT with over 20 years of experience in the treatment of Sleep Apnea. 13 of those years I spent as an RT in the homecare setting. Nice to be here!
