Description

Sleep Medicine is one of the fastest growing fields of medicine and of strong interest to neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists, and the technologists who perform sleep studies. In 2007, sleep medicine became an official medical subspecialty, with board examinations being administered by the American Board of Medical Specialties. This book provides a comprehensive, practical guide to managing sleep disorders, written by a major authority in the field. In addition, it includes 150 multiple choice questions with answers and explanations, to help those studying for American Board exams.show more
