The dramatic increase in the prevalence of individual sleep disturbances, as well as in our knowledge of their mechanisms, has made urgent the need for a new and up-to-date physician's guide. With contributions from leading clinicians, Poceta'sand Mitler's Sleep Disorders satisfies this need by bringing together clear, concise, and practical advice on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common sleep disorders encountered in general practice. Not only do these highly experienced writers review such problems as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, and narcolepsy, but also such important topics as pediatric sleep disorders, the pharmacology of sleep medicines, diagnostic testing and technology, and the use of bright light therapy in sleep disorders and depression. Throughout, the emphasis is on obtaining an accurate history from a patient with a sleep complaint, on carefully analyzing the available diagnostic techniques, and finally devising appropriate treatment strategies and their therapeutic regimens.

Sleep Disorders is written for clinicians, by clinicians. Its authoritative, up-to-date treatment, practical approach, and easy accessibility will make it the gold-standard guide for all primary care physicians desiring to better diagnose and treat their patients' sleep disorders.
