Overview

This pocket-sized handbook is a practical guide to the evaluation and management of sleep disorders. It is written by distinguished sleep medicine experts and covers a broad, multidisciplinary range of topics in neurology, pulmonary medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics.

Chapters provide a broad introduction to sleep disturbances and associated comorbidities and discuss the major sleep disorders in terms of epidemiology, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, assessment tools, management, and follow-up. Of special value are algorithms that provide a logical approach to evaluating sleep-related complaints. All chapters adhere to the new International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD-2), which is outlined in an appendix with ICD-9 codes.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Marie A Dewitt, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a pocket-sized comprehensive handbook on sleep medicine that can serve as a reference for the novice or a concise review for the veteran.
Purpose: It succeeds in providing a concise, symptom-based approach to the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of common sleep disorders.
Audience: The book is written in such a way that few assumptions are made about the reader's background understanding of sleep medicine. It targets practitioners in nearly all fields of medicine, specifically those in primary care, neurology, psychiatry, and pulmonary medicine.
Features: It is well organized for the clinician with chapters arranged by symptom complaint, thereby providing for easy location of relevant material. A plethora of clinically relevant and useful tables, including treatment algorithms, scales, and sleep hygiene information, appear throughout the book. A substantial amount of information is also provided in the appendixes. The index is thorough and well organized and references are cited at the end of each chapter. Some may not like the style of the book even though it is easy to read for the novice, since the density of information can seem overwhelming at times.
Assessment: This book requires time to appreciate all that it has to offer and may need to be read more than once, each time acquiring additional information. It is also unique in that it presents fairly specialized information in a manner that is understandable to those in a variety of medical fields at various levels of exposure to sleep medicine. Presented in a compact package, it serves as an introduction and concise reference for those interested but not specializing in this field.
