Review quote

From the reviews: "'A high-quality, up-to-date background that will support the primary care physician in appropriately utilizing sleep diagnostic testing' as part of clinical practice. ... The topics covered are appropriate for generalist physicians, and include the type of material that one would expect in a book that surveys the field of sleep medicine. ... a useful introductory textbook that will serve as a handy reference for generalist physicians, and it will assist physicians in the recognition, evaluation, and management of patients who have sleep abnormalities." (Robert P Blankfield, Respiratory Care, Vol. 52 (12), 2007) "Primary Care Sleep Medicine: A Practical Guide ... provides primary care physicians with a suitable introduction to sleep medicine as well as with the basic knowledge reasonably necessary to recognize and treat the most common sleep disorders they will encounter in clinic. ... Drs Pagel and Pandi-Perumal provide a 334-page book that comprises 29 chapters with an index. ... To its credit, appropriate citations from peer-reviewed literature and practice guidelines from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine are scattered throughout the book." (A. Y. Avidan and R. K. Malhotra, JAMA, Vol. 198, 2007)show more
