Sleep Medicine in Cardiology – Advances in diagnosis and therapy 

We would like to cordially invite you to attend our international Sleep Medicine Symposium 2010. The symposium
will take place on the 300th anniversary of the Charité, the 200th anniversary of the Humboldt University, and 20 years after the Interdisciplinary Center of Sleep Medicine at the Charité first came into existence. The symposium will be held from 14 – 15 May in the Berlin Medical Association’s historical auditorium in the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, Luisenstr. 58/59, 10117 Berlin.

We have invited prominent international scientists to the symposium who, in recent years, have managed to produce forward-looking results for sleep medicine and sleep research. In this symposium we want to focus in particular on the important role of sleep medicine in cardiology. This shows up in new findings on the significance of sleep disorders for the pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases. For this reason, during the symposium, progress in modern diagnostics for sleep related breathing disorders using very new methods in statistical physics will be presented as well as those generally available in cardiology. On the basis of new studies, the significance of sleep disorders for arterial hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure and arteriosclerosis will also be presented. The latest therapy guidelines will be introduced and perspectives for new potential therapies will be highlighted. The scope of the symposium will not be confined to sleep medicine in cardiology, it will also justify the claim that sleep medicine is a cross-cutting discipline with a highly interdisciplinary approach. New advances in physiology, neurology, otolaryngology, and the role of sleep medicine in preventative medicine, will also be shown.

With the symposium we want to continue with the more casual series of small international sleep research and sleep medicine symposia, highlighting the forward-looking lectures given by sleep clinicians carrying out topical research, and whose new data and concepts are often unpublished.

We are expecting around 200 to 250 participants at the symposium and all participants are invited to register their contributions for a poster presentation.

There will be an industrial exhibition in the foyer of the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus.
