Handbook of Sleep Medicine by Alon Y Avidan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This pocket-sized handbook is a practical guide to the evaluation and management of sleep disorders. It is written by distinguished sleep medicine experts and covers a broad, multidisciplinary range of topics in neurology, pulmonary medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics. The 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.
