De cursus richt zich uitsluitend op laboranten (OSAS-verpleegkundigen, longfunctie-analisten, KNF-laboranten,….) die zich willen bekwamen in de slaap en in het bijzonder in de evaluatie van ademhalingsstoornissen tijdens de slaap.




Course on poly(somno)graphy analysis

This practice-oriented course aims at providing the participants with sufficient practical knowledge to independently perform analysis of a polysomnography or polygraphy and is open for all paramedics operating in a sleep center. The first session will be in November 2016 and this session will be in Dutch. We are planning two courses a year, and the following courses can be given in English depending on the participants.

The teachers are ESRS qualified sleep specialists and an ESRS qualified sleeptechnologist.

  • In memoriam: Michel Cauberghs

  • December 2014 


  • We are very sad to inform you that ir. Michel Cauberghs passed away on  December 3, 2014.

    Michel Cauberghs played an important role in the development of the clinical pathways in sleep medicine and home ventilation in the University Hospital of Louvain. He contributed to the realization of the new and current Sleep Lab in 2001. His colleagues in UZ Leuven will remember Michel as a fine colleague, who always could be found in his familiar place in his technical room, working in a calm manner. Always he was prepared to share his experience and knowledge.

    Michel was more than a sleep technologist. He was also a talented teacher and instructor.

    Dozens of colleagues, physicians and nurses, put their first steps in the analysis of polysomnographys under his expert supervision. In this way, he played an important role in the further development of sleep medicine in Belgium. And therefore, he was a welcome guest on yearly meetings of the BASS and the BSST, where he took an active part in debates.
