Here's an ideal refresher on the core information in the field of sleep medicine. It is a comprehensive review-and-test workbook for preparation of the Sleep Board exam that emphasizes the highlights of sleep medicine and recaps major points with figures, tables, and lists to guide readers. The second half is a mock examination for practice, which includes many polysomnogram segments and multiple epochs. Also included are 500 exam questions, a quick reference to drug effects relating to sleep medicine, and an appendix on sleep scoring basics.

Key Features

  • Enables the user to practice for the exam with the same type of questions used in the exam itself.
  • Provides the busy clinician a succinct summary of all aspects of working up the sleep disordered patient
