Overview

Sleep dysfunction is one of the primary symptoms reported by patients with psychiatric disorders, and specifically those suffering from anxiety and depressive disorders. Conversely, primary insomnia and other sleep disorders produce symptoms of mood disturbance that are quite similar to those reported by patients with psychiatric disorders. Because of this overlap in the symptoms and treatments for insomnias and psychiatric disorders, it is important for clinicians to be able to
accurately identify the root cause of sleep dysfunction in individual patients in order to optimize treatment.

Part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library series, Sleep Disorders provides clinicians with an overview of current understanding of sleep physiology, the pathophysiology of sleep disturbance, and the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. This second edition includes new sections covering sleep problems in children, sleep in the elderly, and sleep in pregnancy and menopause, as well as new algorithms from the British Association of Psychopharmacology's (BAP's) new Consensus Guidelines on the
management of sleep disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M. Isabel L. Crisostomo, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: Part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library series, this is a concise overview of sleep medicine for physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who have limited knowledge in the field. This second edition includes topics on pediatric sleep disorders, sleep disorders in the geriatric population, sleep in pregnancy and menopause, and algorithms for the management of patients with sleep disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide, in compact handbook format, an overview of sleep medicine including sleep physiology, sleep disorders, and diagnostic and treatment approaches. It serves to remedy the perceived limited training in sleep medicine that healthcare professionals receive, despite the demonstrated prevalence of sleep disorders and the affect on quality of life.
Audience: The intended audience includes all healthcare professionals who seek to educate themselves in the field of sleep medicine.
Features: The 10 chapters cover normal sleep physiology and diagnostic approaches to sleep disorders. Chapters on sleep disorders include insomnia, hypersomnia, parasomnias, circadian rhythm sleep disorders, psychiatric disorders, and sleep disorders associated with neurological and medical disorders. One chapter covers sleep pharmacology. A final chapter is devoted to the impact of irregular working hours on healthcare professionals and the means for coping with and prevention of sleep disorders in this population. Selected references at the end of each chapter provide additional sources of information.
Assessment: This is a helpful and concise contribution to the field of sleep medicine. With its easy-to-read format, it serves as a handy resource for healthcare professionals who have minimal training in this field. The second edition incorporates the updates in the field since the previous edition.
