Sleep occupies more than one-third of our lives and affects our health and well-being throughout the entire day. This text defines the principles which are essential for the practice of sleep medicine, explains various clinical regimens using case studies, and examines areas that need further research and new treatment possibilities. Covered topics include insomnia, paediatric sleep disorders and intrinsic sleep disorders, with overarching chapters on pharmacological interventions and cognitive behavioural theory underlying behavioural interventions.
