Title: Sleep Medicine
Description: New York, Oxford University Press. 1999, First Edition. (ISBN: 0195129571) Hardcover, 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Provides an accurate concise information concerning the evaluation and the treatment of patients with sleep problems. Because management of sleep disorders requires an understanding of sleep itself, the first portion discribes aspects of normal sleep. The remainder of the book follows an approach based on the clinical method, in which the chief complaints (the symptoms and the signs) and the psychosocial and the medical background of the individual are used, in conjunction with an understanding of the neurobiological and psychological basis of sleep disorders, to formulate a clinical assessment. The results of polysomnographic studies and other laboratory tests supplement and redefine clinical information and assist with consideration of treatment options. Contains sections on the following; Normal Human Sleep, Neurobiology of Sleep, Breathing During Wakefulness and Sleep, Chronobiology, Ontogeny of Sleep, Dreams and Other Mental Activity During Sleep, Approach to the Patient, Sleepiness and Sleep Deprivation, Insomnia, Narcolepsy and Related Disorders, Restless Legs Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, Chronobiologic Disorders, Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, Central Sleep Apnea and Hypoventilation During Sleep, Parasomnias, Psychiatirc Disorders and Sleep. A book in the Contemporary Neurology Series. No Jacket, as Issued. New.
