World Sleep News, August 2020

From the President
Dear Colleagues,
I have the pleasure to announce that a group of international sleep researchers, many being active members of the World Sleep community, have developed consensus diagnostic criteria detailing a new sleep disorder in children called Restless Sleep Disorder or RSD.
For years, experts have identified ‘restless sleep’ as part of other sleep conditions that can cause sleep disruption or nocturnal awakenings like obstructive sleep apnea or restless legs syndrome. However, recent research in children has shown that restless sleep can also be a primary disorder. I invite you to read the journal article from Sleep Medicine and the press release announcing this momentous feat.
