Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M. Isabel L. Crisostomo, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This self-assessment book for sleep physicians who wish to review their knowledge is designed to mimic the distribution of questions on the sleep medicine boards.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive but focused review of sleep medicine. It is designed as a study aid to help readers sharpen their didactic skills with the use of material delivered in a concise format providing instruction by example.
Audience: This book is targeted primarily at sleep physicians, but it is also useful for other clinicians such as neurologists, pulmonologists, psychiatrists, and otolaryngologists, as well as respiratory and sleep technologists. The main editor is a leading name in the field of sleep medicine.
Features: The first of the book's two sections contains multiple choice questions with only one correct answer. The second section contains the answers with comprehensive explanations. The content is based on the topics listed on the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) web site, which also indicates the percentage distribution of the topics in the examination. The questions are evidence-based and derived from published scientific literature. For certain questions, the literature source is cited, which enhances the learning value of this book. The index helps readers locate and review specific questions based on a topic.
Assessment: This is a worthy contribution to the field. It serves as a very useful review, especially for physicians taking the sleep medicine boards. The questions are well distributed and all encompassing of the topics listed on the ABIM web site. All in all, this book will be helpful for self-assessment in preparation for the sleep boards as well as a learning resource for clinicians interested in the field of sleep medicine.
