The American Academy of Sleep Medicine's public education Web site www.sleepeducation.com has new information and resources about sleep disorders and the effects of sleep deprivation for teens.
Among the new resources your teenage patients can download is the Cleveland Adolescent Sleepiness Questionnaire, a self-completed instrument to measure excessive daytime sleepiness in ages 11-17. It was developed by Drs. James Spilsbury, Dennis Drotar, Carol Rosen and Susan Redline and published in the October 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine .
