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 updated ICSD-2 and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria and new and revised "American Academy of Sleep Medicine Standards of Practice" guidelines. Other highlights include new chapters on sleep hygiene and sleep enuresis, updated and expanded chapters on all sleep disorders, and up-to-date information on sleep medications and sleep in special populations. A companion Website will offer parent handouts for each age group and each sleep disorder, as well as screening questionnaires and sleep diaries.
