Sleep Medicine

JAMA. 2009;302(13):1469. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1429

Sleep Medicine begins with a simple but profound statement: “sleep is not an inactive state.” In the subsequent 225 pages, the internationally respected editors and authors then present a thorough review of the full complexity of the science of sleep medicine. Edited by Smith, Comella, and Högl, the book includes sections on normal sleep, sleep disorders, and sleep in specialty areas; in short, nearly all a clinician needs to know and understand when evaluating and treating patients with excessive sleepiness or sleeplessness and the broad array of disturbances that occur during the sleep state.
