This is an excellent atlas with comprehensive coverage of wide-ranging topics in pediatric sleep medicine. The layout, illustrations, and text are user-friendly and easy to understand.
Both normal sleep and abnormal sleep are well illustrated using numerous examples from normal children and also disease categories, including sleep-related breathing disorders, non–rapid eye movement sleep-related parasomnias, rapid eye movement sleep-related parasomnias, and sleep in the neurologically abnormal child. A good chapter on common artifacts, especially those specific to pediatric patients, and also a chapter with a brief discussion on pneumography and home monitoring are also included. The text accompanying each illustration includes a good discussion of polysomnographic features, technology used when relevant, as well as a comprehensive list of references and suggested reading, making learning easy for the user.
