Sleep and Rehabilitation: A Guide for Health Professionalsis a concise reference for the health professional looking to further understand sleep and how sleep science may impact particular areas of various rehabilitation disciplines.

Dr. Julie M. Hereford and her contributors present Sleep and Rehabilitation: A Guide for Health Professionalsin an easy-to-read manner by dividing the text into four main sections. The first section provides a review of the basic scientific understanding of sleep. While there are many other publications that present a basic scientific understanding of sleep, Sleep and Rehabilitation systematically gears this information toward the rehabilitation professional with commonly used terminology, descriptions of sleep architecture, and information concerning sleep hygiene.

The middle sections of Sleep and Rehabilitationdescribe disordered sleep and how it pertains to patients seen in the rehabilitation setting. It guides the health professional to recognize the manifestations and consequences of disordered sleep and teaches the rehabilitation professional how to interpret a sleep study in order to provide guidance in clinical decision making. Finally, the last section of Sleep and Rehabilitationprovides the ever-important practical application of the theoretical principles in sleep rehabilitation.
