Article Abstract

Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

This excellent resource was written for ease of use for busy clinicians (including primary care physicians) with little formal education in sleep disorders medicine. The editors and authors seem to have accomplished this goal very well with a variety of features: chapters titled based on symptoms (not necessarily diagnoses); beginning chapters with tabulations of symptoms and diagnoses; and frequent use of tables as a rapid and easy way to display most of the important information also covered in the text. Illustrations are useful, especially those regarding electroencephalogram/polysomnography, schematics of apneas/hypopneas, and an illustration of a sleep log (whose background was rather dark).’ ‹
