Book Reviews

"Written by Richard Berry, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, Medical Director, University of Florida and Shands Sleep Disorder Center, Gainesville, Fundamentals of Sleep Medicine is a multimedia resource that provides a concise, clinically focused alternative to larger sleep medicine references. Clinicians get everything they need to know about the evaluation and management of sleep disorders, including the interpretation of sleep scans and the use of the newly overhauled AASM scoring criteria. Coverage of physiology is limited to what is necessary for clinical decision making. The book's logical, user-friendly format and online features which include the full text and illustrations, numerous video clips, and selected case studies.

The goal of Fundamentals of Sleep Medicine is to provide readers with a core of fundamental knowledge about sleep medicine and polysomnography. Berry covers the topic so that a person without training in sleep medicine can start reading chapter one and progress until the end of the book." -
