Overview

Sleep Medicine is one of the fastest growing fields of medicine and of strong interest to neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists, and the technologists who perform sleep studies. Almost all of the major medical centers in the US now have centers for sleep disorders. In 2007, sleep medicine will become an official medical subspecialty, with board examinations being administered by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Sleep Medicine: Essentials and Review will cover this new field by providing a book that can be used both as a practical, outline-style text for managing sleep disorders and as a "high yield" review for preparing for the sleep medicine board exam. In addition to the text, the author will include 150 board-type multiple choice questions with answers and explanations. Dr. Lee-Chiong is a major authority in the field and author of a comprehensive sleep medicine textbook.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M. Isabel L. Crisostomo, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is designed as a practical book on sleep disorders and as a review for preparing for the Sleep Medicine Certification Examination as well as the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists Examination.
Purpose: The purpose, implied by the title, is to present the essentials of sleep medicine that will allow clinicians to practice excellent clinical sleep medicine or to pass the examination.
Audience: Healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with sleep disorders are the intended audience. The author is a prominent authority in the field.
Features: The book is well organized into 16 chapters, each with bibliography at the end of the chapter. Each chapter includes an outline, followed by concise discussion in typical textbook format with liberal use of tables highlighting important points. The topics span the entire breadth of sleep medicine from the basics of sleep, evaluation of sleep disorders, various sleep disorders, sleep across the ages from infancy to older adults, sleep in women, and medications. An appendix includes highlights of the scoring and sample sleep epochs. There are 600 review questions with answers and rationale at the end of the book to aid readers who are preparing for sleep medicine certification.

"This is a very useful book that will serve as a good quick reference for clinicians and serves as a good review for certification examination in sleep medicine."—Doody's

"This comprehensive text is packed with information covering all aspects of sleep medicine...This book is very well designed as a concise review for the Sleep Medicine Boards-it is densely packed, making liberal use of tables and boxes designed to stand out easily. It contains abundant study questions with brief, clear answers. References are current, abundant, and well chosen." —Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"The beauty of this book is that it speaks in the language of surgeons as well as ethicists...It should be a mandatory reading for every surgery resident as well as attending surgeon. In addition, medical students and students of bioethics will gain tremendous insight into the practice of surgery by working through this book." —Ethics & Medicine
