  • Emergency response professionals are expected to be alert and awake at a moments notice at all hours of the day or night. This is a reasonable expectation, but what does it cost the care provider to meet this expectation? What are the consequences of sleep disruptions associated with our profession and how do we combat them? During this CME we will explore the circadian rhythm, the stages of sleep, and some of the consequences associated with sleep disruptions.
