Why this new release is something sleep technologists should be excited for
Just last week, we announced the release of the new edition of theTechnologist’s Introduction to Sleep Disorders. The new book offers a comprehensive review that parallels the International Classification of Sleep Disorders with an emphasis on aspects important for sleep technologists.
Clinical information, diagnosis, pathophysiology and case examples are provided for insomnias, sleep related breathing disorders, hypersomnias and sleep related movement disorders. A new focus for this edition and for sleep medicine as a whole is the concept of comorbidity.
Patients may suffer from more than one sleep disorder, and this may significantly impact the treatment approach. The interaction of these comorbid disorders with sleep disorders and the impact of medications on sleep disorders are a focus of the new edition.
What's the Same?
As with the previous edition, this edition seeks to increase technologist’s understanding of sleep disorders and improve ability to communicate in the medical environment.
