It can be challenging to accurately discern between and effectively manage sleep disorders, and particularly those associated with underlying neurological disease. Now in its second edition, this user–friendly text continues to clarify this difficult process by offering sleep specialists, neurologists, and other health care professionals case–appropriate methods of diagnosis and treatment. Clear, concise guidance on the proper identification of both common and rare disorders is complemented by insights into diagnostic testing and different treatment options, while a wide range of illustrations visually demonstrate the points at hand.

The second edition of Sleep Disorders in Neurology: A Practical Approach makes some excellent additions to the book′s content. With its expanded coverage, the text goes into greater depth in its discussion of insomnia and other primary sleep disorders. Recent research has also led to the inclusion of a newly written chapter on the fascinating subject of sleep deprivation and the brain. Furthermore, all diagnostic classifications have been updated and remodelled in accordance with the 3rd International Classification of Sleep Disorders. This straightforward guide:

  • Provides practical, clinically oriented instruction for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders
  • Covers both common and rare neurological sleep disorders
  • Includes quick–access algorithms that are designed to aid practitioners′ efficient and effective decision–making
  • Complements its newly expanded content with demonstrative illustrations

Sleep Disorders in Neurology: A Practical Approach is an essential diagnostic aid and point of reference for all those working with patients experiencing sleep–wake disturbances.
