Extract

The leaders from the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) have met to address means by which the three societies could work together to enhance patient care with respect to the practice of sleep medicine and advance the interests of these groups, their constituencies, and their patients. In this editorial, we focus on those areas most pertinent to pulmonary physicians in the practice of sleep medicine, which has now been recognized as an independent specialty.
