Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and narcolepsy are sleep disorders associated with high prevalence and symptomatic burden including prominent sleepiness, daytime dysfunction, and poor nocturnal sleep. Both OSA and narcolepsy have an elevated risk of adverse health outcomes. Diagnosis of narcolepsy is often challenging and encompasses clinical, electrophysiological, and biological evaluations. Symptoms of narcolepsy are more likely to be missed if they develop before adulthood. Current therapies for adults with narcolepsy are often underutilized, and agents using novel mechanisms to treat targeted symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness in OSA and narcolepsy are in development. In this program, experts will describe best practices for diagnosing and treating narcolepsy in children and adults, the burden of excessive daytime sleepiness in narcolepsy and OSA, and emerging evidence with agents in development. A special roundtable session will explore commonly encountered barriers and identify potential solutions.
