Since the release of Rechtschaffen and Kales' seminal manual on sleep medicine in 1968, the discipline has undergone a rapid expansion. This text is the product of a project by all members of the Mayo Clinic Sleep Disorders Center to create the first Atlas of Sleep Medicine. This constitutes a valuable resource for students, clinicians, technicians and researchers interested in learning more about identification, description and treatment of sleep disorders.The text features 122 polysomnograms and 5 enlarged ECGs to give a complete visual record of the broad spectrum of sleep disorders. An explanation follows each illustration, furnishing a concise case history of the disorder, including key references. This atlas, a classic in this growing field, provides illustrative examples of how polysomnography, multiple sleep latency testing, pulse oximetry, actigraphy, and pupillometry are used in the diagnostic evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders.Atlas of Sleep Medicine remains an indispensable resource for physicians, technicians and students involved with the wide spectrum of pathology that may manifest itself during sleep.Shepard, John W. is the author of 'Atlas of Sleep Medicine' with ISBN 9780879935092 and ISBN 087993509X.
