Edward Grandi, Executive Director, American Sleep Apnea Association, review, (December 2010): "The volume "Sleep Medicine" by doctors Yaremchuk and Wardrop is an excellent addition to the medical literature on the subject of sleep apnea. Written by otolaryngologists primarly for otolargngologists, it provides a comprehensive overview of the sleep, sleep disorders and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. In addtion to addressing the surgical interventions for the condition, the text also provides information on the other treatment modalities - Positive Airway Pressure (PAP), Oral Appliances and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The added section on pediatric sleep disorders is also very useful in treating sleep apnea in children. "Sleep Medicine" is a valuable resource for the ENT surgeon interested in recognizing and treating sleep apnea in adults and children." Dennis Rosen, MD, JAMA, (2/16/11): "ONE OF THE MOST ENJOYABLE ASPECTS OF PRACTICING SLEEP medicine, aside from helping patients overcome problems that significantly affect their quality of life, is its interdisciplinary nature. Because sleep medicine is a relatively new field, it has attracted practitioners from a variety of specialties specialties: pediatrics, internal medicine, pulmonology, psychiatry,psychology, otolaryngology, neurology, maxillofacial surgery,and dentistry. In each of these disciplines, patients and their conditions are approached from different angles, and using the varying perspectives on how to diagnose and treat the different disorders not only reveals what may have been overlooked but also complements and enriches the treatments prescribed. This is what makes sleep medicine conferences so interesting: one learns of advances in the field as well as new ways of approaching old problems. This applies to published material as well. Sleep Medicine, edited by otolaryngology sleep specialists Kathleen Yaremchuk and Pell Ann Wardrop, and with many chapters written by other otolaryngology sleep specialists, is a perfect example. A large portion of the book is dedicated to the thorough examination of the upper airway of patients suspected of having obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and to describing in detail many of the treatment options for that condition, specifically many of the surgical interventions that can be used when other approaches are unsuccessful. However, this is by no means the sole focus of the book, which succeeds in providing a comprehensive overview of sleep disorders as well as their evaluation,diagnosis, and treatment. The in-depth examination of surgical alternatives to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) as treatment for OSA is especially valuable when one considers that studies have shown that only 50% of patients prescribed CPAP actually use it on a regular basis. Thus, this resource, which presents these alternatives and includes illustrations and explanations of the surgical techniques, enables the nonsurgical sleep specialist to understand and then present them to patients unable to tolerate CPAP who need a different solution for their OSA. This in turn allows patients to make informed decisions about which options to pursue - especially important when this involves specialty care that may not be available in their own geographic area. The user-friendly text is easy to read and includes many photographs and diagrams as well as tools that can be used in practice. One example is the Kentucky positive airway pressure questionnaire, which appears in the chapter on the role of psychology in the treatment of sleep disorders and which underscores the importance of integrating multiple disciplines to successfully treat patients. A good portion of the book is also dedicated to pediatric sleep disorders, including not only OSA but many of the other sleep problems encountered in children, such as behavioral insomnia of childhood. Because textbooks addressing disorders that span the entire life span often overlook the unique aspects of the pediatric patient, it is satisfying to see this area of sleep medicine covered so prominently. Because Sleep Medicine provides such a good overview of the field as a whole, it will be useful for family and pediatric physicians as well as nurse practitioners. And because of the exceptionally detailed and well-presented overview of the structural and mechanical aspects of the upper air-way, how these aspects contribute to the development of OSA, and the thoroughness with which the different treatment options are discussed, this text will likewise prove to be an excellent resource for trainees as well as practicing specialists in sleep medicine." Steven Y. Park, MD, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology, (2012): "...the book covers all major areas of sleep medicine thoroughly and succinctly. The chapters are relatively short, easy to read, and filled with practical information on every page. There are numerous tables, charts, and illustrations that are clear and easy to interpret."
