Written for busy primary care practitioners, this book is a practical clinical guide to common pediatric sleep disorders and their treatment. Information is organized by specific disorder and by the most frequent presenting complaints. Symptom-based algorithms will enable practitioners to evaluate sleep complaints in a stepwise manner. Other features include symptom checklists for specific disorders and chapters on sleep problems in special populations. Appendices provide practical tools for screening for sleep problems, evaluating sleep studies, and counseling families. This edition includes the new sleep scoring system established by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in 2007 which is now to be used by all accredited sleep centers. It also incorporates new American Academy of Sleep Medicine standards of clinical practice in major areas such as bedtime problems/night wakings and delayed sleep phase syndrome. Updated ICSD-2 and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria are used throughout the book. A companion Website will offer parent handouts for each age group and each sleep disorder.
