Running A Sleep Lab
A key part of running a sleep lab is keeping on top of the constantly changing regulatory environment, on both the federal and state levels. This link does a good job of describing the new federal regulations for independent diagnostic and testing facilites (IDTF's) that went into effect January 2008 (though for pre-existing IDTF's, many of the provisions do not apply until January 2009). Every February the AASM gives a course on sleep lab management that is very useful for anyone running a sleep lab.
