4.0 out of 5 stars Sleep Technology July 7, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very technologist-oriented book that gives a good background of the science behind polysomnography. Neurophysiology sections are written in a somewhat disorganzied fashion but this is not uncommon in polysomnography texts available on the market. A good neurophysiology reference while digesting this book's sections on the same would be recommended.

Needs to be updated with the 2008 AASM scoring guidelines but otherwise a great book that should be in the library of technologists / respiratory therapists involved with polysomnography or sleep medicine.

I look forward to a next edition with updated 2008 AASM guidelines!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Sleep Technology--(pink book) September 15, 2008
This textbook is very informative and pertinent to students and professionals alike who are involved in sleep medicine. The content makes sense and is not overburdened with scientific jargon. Thus, it gives a straightforward and detailed overview of what sleep technology is about today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book April 10, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is actually a great book, and in my humble opinion better than Principles of Polysomnography. I will agree with other reviewers that the text is dated so far as the 2008 AASM scoring guidelines are not included due to publication date. It lists old R and K classification.

The main changes in sleep scoring in the 2007 AASM manual include the following:

*The addition of a frontal EEG derivation in addition to the central and occipital leads commonly used: The R and K classification required that the central lead always be used if only 1 derivation was possible.
*Changing the sleep stages to stage W (wake), stages N1-N3 (non-REM), and stage R (REM) from the previously described R and K stages of wakefulness, 1-4, and REM: The change in abbreviations is to avoid confusion between the 2 classification systems. Stage 3 and 4 in the old R and K rules were abbreviated to stage N3 in the new rules, as no physiologic or clinical basis exists for a difference between stages 3 and 4.

I do find minor flaws with the disorganization of information with respect to key components of chapters that I felt should be fleshed out entirely separate from the chapter material, but again as others have said this is not uncommon with other texts in Sleep Medicine due to our field being multi-disciplinary in nature.

I will say the text does a great job at quickly synthesizing materials from books like
