Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M. Isabel L. Crisostomo, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive compilation of a broad spectrum of clinical sleep cases seen at the Cleveland Clinic.
Purpose: The purpose is to present in a concise volume an in-depth discussion of a wide range of practical cases ranging from the ordinary to the unusual. The book meets these worthy objectives.
Audience: It is intended for busy practitioners, both generalists and specialists. As explained by the editors, the book is written in a simple, informal style avoiding jargon to appeal to a range of readers from generalist or specialist practitioners to trainees. The majority of the authors are authorities in the field of sleep medicine at the Cleveland Clinic.
Features: The seven sections represent major classifications of sleep disorders: insomnias, sleep-related breathing disorders, hypersomnias, circadian rhythm sleep disorders, parasomnias, sleep-related movement disorders, and sleep disorders associated with other conditions. Two introductory chapters on the sleep clinic protocol and testing procedure precede the discussion of clinical cases. Each chapter is organized into case history, physical examination, evaluation, diagnosis, outcome, and bibliography. Pertinent diagrams may be in the form of polysomnography tracings, hypnograms, actigraphy data, International Classification of Sleep Disorders-2 diagnostic criteria, sleep logs, among others. In addition, videos can be viewed at a companion website. Other features include a section on abbreviations and seven appendixes that present the various assessment tools commonly used in the sleep clinic such as the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, Insomnia Severity Index, Fatigue Severity Scale, Horne-Ostberg Morningness-Eveningness Scale, Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9), International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group rating scale and International Classification of Sleep Disorders-2. Finally, the book ends with a helpful glossary and bibliography.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile contribution to the field of sleep medicine. It presents in a concise and simple to read format a wide variety of sleep disorders presented as actual cases encountered in the Cleveland Clinic.
