Expanded to include detailed information on pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment, the Handbook of Sleep Medicine continues to offer a concise overview of the field for trainees and practitioners in the many disciplines that deal with sleep disorders. 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.

Sleep disorders represent a major portion of the chief complaints seen by pulmonologists and other physicians. Sleep apnea and hypopnea syndrome for example, are common disorders with significant adverse health consequences. Sleep apnea is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality, impaired quality of life and increased motor vehicle accidents. In addition, sleep apnea often co-exists with other chronic conditions including obesity, the metabolic syndrome, and tobacco use disorder. Patients with sleep-related conditions often present with non-specific complaints that require a broad and detailed knowledge of the wide range of sleep disorders. In Essentials of Sleep Medicine: An Approach for Clinical Pulmonology, a concise, evidence-based review of sleep medicine for the pulmonologist is presented. Providing a focused, scientific basis for the effects of sleep on human physiology, especially cardiac and respiratory physiology, chapters also outline a differential diagnosis for common sleep complaints and an evidence-based approach to diagnosis and management. This includes a review of the current standards of practice and of emerging technology and unresolved issues awaiting further research. Each chapter includes a summary of current research and outlines future research directions and issues. In all, Essentials of Sleep Medicine: An Approach for Clinical Pulmonology provides a clear diagnostic and management program for all the different sleep disorders, with a major focus on respiratory disorders of sleep, and includes key points and summaries. Developed by an international group of renowned authors, Essentials of Sleep Medicine: An Approach for Clinical Pulmonology is an invaluable resource for pulmonologists, respiratory care practitioners, polysomnographic technologists, graduate students, clinical researchers, and other health professionals seeking an in-depth review of sleep medicine.

For progress to be maintained in a clinical field like sleep medicine, unimpeded, unrestricted access to data and the advances in clinical practice should be available. The reason why this book is exciting is that it breaks down the barriers to dissemination of information, providing scientists, physicians, researchers and interested individuals with a valuable insight into the latest diverse developments within the study of sleep disorders. This book is a collection of chapters, which can be viewed as independent units dealing with different aspects and issues connected to sleep disorders, having in common that they reflect leading edge ideas, reflections and observations. The authors take into account the medical and social aspects of sleep-related disorders, concentrating on different focus groups, from adults to pregnant women, adolescents, children and professional workers.
