Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Garrett Herzon, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This second edition textbook describes recent research and clinical experiences in the field of snoring and sleep apnea treatment. The book incorporates the contributions of a diverse group of contributing authors from fields of basic science research and clinical medicine and surgery.
Purpose: The purpose is to give the reader an overview of the clinical signs and symptoms of patients who suffer from obstructive apnea and severe snoring. The book then goes on to describe state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments that practicing practitioners can include in their armamentarium to treat these diseases. The book does an excellent job in meeting its overall objective.
Audience: The principle audience for the textbook would be the practicing otolaryngologist/head and neck surgeon. This textbook would also be helpful for residents-in-training in the fields of otolaryngology as well as neurology residents who may be completing a rotation in sleep disorders.
Features: The book includes many excellent, clear, black-and-white pictures as well as informative drawings, charts, and graphs. The references are quite extensive and up-to-date. The organization of the book to include medical therapy as well as surgical treatments makes this book most unique.
Assessment: This textbook would be most helpful to residents and practicing clinicians who wish to better understand the complexity of the new treatments for snoring and sleep apnea. This subject has recently come to the forefront of general medical news as more patients are seeking medical advice regarding these problems. The authors have successfully combined, in a single book, the perspectives of a diverse group of scientists and practicing clinicians who are interested in the latest therapies for this patient population. By having a diverse contributor list the reader receives a well-balanced view of the efficacy of both medical and surgical treatments. This unique perspective should be welcomed by all clinicians in the field of sleep disorders. I found the second edition of the book to be much more topical and relevant.

Provides the head and neck surgeon with a condensed practical guide for managing patients with the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and its common elements of snoring and sleepiness. Two contributions from pioneers in the field who have since died are reprinted from the first edition; the other 14 review the latest findings and thought on such aspects as surgical and non-surgical management, the impact of the nose, children, and the cardiopulmonary and neurological consequences of the syndrome.
