Since we opened our doors Priority Health Education has been helping sleep and respiratory students fulfill their training needs. Now with the new LEARNING CENTER we can expand our services to students everywhere.
Our roots go back to 2006 when we developed one of the industry's FIRST web based interactive training series called "Professional Training Series." We also started the industry's FIRST podcast series. And to help prepare those sitting for their sleep boards we also developed the industry's FIRST Android and IOS sleep education apps.
We do this through personalized instruction from our own instructors, working with our education partners, and working hand-in-hand with YOU for the most efficient learning. We use our own proprietary education methodology called the Stair-Step-Education-Process (SSEP) to assist our students in comprehending the presented information.
Be sure to support the industry by subscribing and watching "Sleep Tech Talk Podcast. You can start by watching the episode on YouTube with Joseph Anderson, co-founder of Priority Health Education.

We know that learning is easier when you have excellent respiratory and sleep education teachers and instructors.
That's why most of our educators have decades of experience in their specialties. Our staff is passionate about the subjects they teach and bring this enthusiasm into their seminars and courses.
Look for our SATURDAY ONLY 80-hour Sleep Boot Camp - The Basics coming soon!!!
This is the same as our Boot Camp - The Basics but now presenting ALL didactic education and ALL hands-on clinical time on consecutive Saturdays from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
This is designed for our out-of-town students and/or for those students who already have a job and are unable to attend our regular Basic Training classes.
Also called Sleep Technology or Polysomnographic Technology is a separate and distinct, multidisciplinary, allied health-care occupation embracing a unique body of knowledge and methodological skills. Polysomnography is a standard tool in Sleep Medicine for evaluating sleep-related pathophysiology, sleep architecture, and sleep integrity.
Specifically, it is a complex evaluation used as a quantitative measurement of multiple physiological parameters during sleep, combined with expert observational reporting.
From the middle of the 20th century, research has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning. This rapidly evolving field has become a recognized medical specialty.
The first sleep labs in the United States were established in the 1970s by interested doctors and technicians. The study, diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) were their first tasks. As late as 1999, virtually any American doctor, with no specific training in sleep medicine, could open a sleep lab. Regulations are much stricter now.
Disorders and disturbances of sleep are widespread and can have significant consequences for affected individuals as well as economic and other consequences for society.
Credentialed by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGT-Credential), or the National Board of Respiratory Care, Sleep Techs assist physicians in the clinical assessment, physiological monitoring and testing, diagnosis, management, and prevention of sleep related disorders with the use of various diagnostic and therapeutic tools providing care to patients of all ages.
Sleep technologists, technicians and trainees are the technical group specially trained to perform polysomnography and other technical evaluations used for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep/arousal disorders. They are health-care professionals who work as part of a team under the general supervision of a licensed physician to assist in the education, evaluation, treatment and follow up of sleep disorders patients of all ages.
This profession employs a unique set of diagnostic tools used in the interest of establishing diagnoses and developing future therapeutic interventions, which require expertise in the specialty of Sleep Medicine.
These tools include but are not limited to polysomnography, positive airway pressure devices, oximetry, capnography, actigraphy, nocturnal oxygen, screening devices, and questionnaires.
