Technical Standards for the Scoring of Respiratory Events using Type III Devices for the Diagnosis of Sleep Disordered Breathing

Chairs: Renata Riha & Wilfried de Backer

This Task Force includes members of both the ERS and ESRS and thereby combines expertise from across the discipline of sleep medicine and specifically, disordered breathing. It includes two members who are technicians qualified in scoring sleep, both of whom represent their field at national and international levels.

A unified approach by both societies will ensure greater dissemination of the guidelines with earlier adoption by all those working in the field. The aim is to develop guidelines of merit and substance that will be adopted internationally and help to bridge an important gap in this area.
