Overview

Written for busy primary care practitioners, this book is a practical clinical guide to common pediatric sleep disorders and their treatment. Information is organized by specific disorder and by the most frequent presenting complaints. Symptom-based algorithms will enable practitioners to evaluate sleep complaints in a stepwise manner. Other features include symptom checklists for specific disorders and chapters on sleep problems in special populations. Appendices provide practical tools for screening for sleep problems, evaluating sleep studies, and counseling families.

This edition includes updated ICSD-2 and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria and new and revised American Academy of Sleep Medicine Standards of Practice guidelines. Other highlights include new chapters on sleep hygiene and sleep enuresis, updated and expanded chapters on all sleep disorders, and up-to-date information on sleep medications and sleep in special populations.

A companion Website will offer parent handouts for each age group and each sleep disorder, as well as screening questionnaires and sleep diaries.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Danielle Calix, MD (Ochsner for Children)
Description: This update of a 2003 publication provides a detailed review of normal sleep and several specific common pediatric sleep problems. Its unique online companion contains the full text as well as patient handouts and additional references.
Purpose: The purpose is to highlight the prevalence of sleep problems in children, document their profound impact on patients and families, and provide information for the diagnosis and management of these problems. The authors' goals were exceeded, punctuating the need for this updated edition.
Audience: This book is written for clinical healthcare providers, specifically those specializing in the care of children.
Features: The authors provide useful diagnostic tools for recognizing sleep problems in children such as specific sleep stage disturbances, night waking, enuresis, sleep apnea, etc. Symptom-based algorithms, tips for talking to parents, and parent handouts are particularly useful for clinicians. The chapter on sleep and medications is an especially valuable resource.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile endeavor providing important information on a somewhat underappreciated aspect of overall child health. The updated resources, online appendixes, and diagnostic criteria as well as revised practice guidelines and handouts prove the necessity of this second edition.
