Back cover copy

It is now well recognized that many health disorders are either unique to or more common among women than men. In Sleep Disorders in Women: A Guide to Practical Management, a multidisciplinary panel of eminent researchers and practicing clinicians comprehensively explores all aspects of sleep disorders in women at different stages of life, illuminating the unique impact that each reproductive and endocrine stage has on both normal sleep and sleep disorders. The authors-gynecologists, neurologists, pulmonologists, pediatricians, psychiatrists, physician assistants, and psychologists-share their expert knowledge and experience in treating insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, restless legs syndrome, and obstructive sleep apnea in adolescent, premenopausal, pregnant, and menopausal patients. Less commonly appreciated circadian rhythm disorders in adolescents such as delayed sleep phase syndrome and insomnia are also addressed. In addition to summarizing the latest, cutting-edge research in a succinct and clinically relevant manner, the authors also help physicians recognize the symptom patterns of sleep disorders in their female patients and offer guidance on diagnosing and treating them in a timely fashion. Introductory chapters provide essential background information on the epidemiology of sleep disorders in women, how to workup female patients with sleep complaints, and the impact of the life cycle on sleep in women. Authoritative and clinically oriented, Sleep Disorders in Women: A Guide to Practical Management clarifies for today's busy clinicians the complexities of sleep physiology and sleep pathophysiology in women, so that they can more easily make accurate diagnoses and offer optimal treatments.show more
