Summary In spite of the fact that over one third of all adults and children with sleep disorders present initially to an otolaryngologist for diagnosis and treatment, there is a paucity of available educational material written from and for the ENT perspective. This new book, featuring chapters from contributing experts in other related fields, provides materials necessary to practice sleep medicine, covering the basics of both adult and pediatric as it applies to the clinical practice of Otolaryngology. It is the only book to provide an in depth review of clinical sleep medicine with coverage of sleep testing modalities and to focus on the clinical sleep disorders that an otolaryngologist is likely to see in an office practice
