Accurately diagnose and treat adult and pediatric sleep disorders with exceptional visual guidance from world-renowned sleep expert Dr. Meir H. Kryger. Atlas of Clinical Sleep Medicine is an easy-to-read, highly illustrated atlas that details the physiologic, clinical, morphologic, and investigational aspects of the full range of sleep disorders you encounter in everyday practice -- and helps you interpret the visual manifestations of your patientsÂ’ sleep disorders so you can manage them most effectively. 

 ".. a nice addition to your library and a powerful teaching tool in a training program." Reviewed by Sleep Breath, Oct 2014 

 "As a regular teacher on the same range of sleep disorders, one of its best features is excellent online access (to all the pictures, graphs, polysomnography traces and patient videos)." Reviewed by Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation (ANCR), Jan 2015

Published Reviews

"The book primarily functions as a compendium of general modern sleep medicine. This new edition has been enriched by the addition of other editors. The book does not attempt to be a comprehensive review of sleep medicine, but rather an atlas of functions and graphic material. It is useful for mid-level practitioners, sleep fellows, Ph.D. researchers, and attending physicians with special interest in sleep medicine." Reviewed by Sleep Breath, Oct 2014

 "...one of its best features is excellent online access (to all the pictures, graphs, polysomnography traces and patient videos). There are also several patient interviews - a really useful resource, and a key change to this second edition of the atlas, for a speciality where there are very few physical signs and the history is rarely taught at undergraduate level."
