Description


Featuring the contributions of more than two dozen national and international experts, Clinical Sleep Medicine: A Comprehensive Guide for Mental Health and Other Medical Professionals is the definitive resource to the core concepts of sleep medicine. With the most up-to-date information and the latest guidelines, this guide summarizes the pathophysiological mechanisms, epidemiology, clinical presentations, and management of adult and pediatric sleep disorders, including - Insomnia- Hypersomnia- Sleep-disordered breathing- Circadian disorders- Parasomnias- Sleep-related movement disorders

New concepts, emerging evidence, and aspects that require further research are highlighted specifically throughout the book and discussed at length. Concise chapters promote ease of reference and feature a section on differential diagnosis so that readers can distinguish among the various diseases and disorders. Where certain disorders overlap, the guide provides cross-references to relevant information. Numerous illustrations, tables, and schematics aid in the rapid understanding and assimilation of even the most complex concepts.

With a small format that belies its comprehensiveness, Clinical Sleep Medicine is an indispensable, on-the-go reference for clinicians, researchers, nonmedical professionals, and even patients themselves.
