Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an updated edition of the authoritative and comprehensive book on sleep medicine that is generally considered the bible in the field. As a textbook, it will be useful to trainees in the field of sleep medicine whether they are medical students, residents or sleep fellows. It will also benefit those in other specialties traditionally linked to sleep medicine such as pulmonary medicine, neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics, ENT, obstetrics and women's health, endocrinology, and cardiology. This book remains a valuable contribution to the field."

More About the Author

Meir H. Kryger, MD, FRCPC (Biography modified from WebMD)

Meir Kryger, MD, FRCPC, is currently professor, Yale University school of Medicine. Previously he was Director of Research and Education at Gaylord Sleep Medicine in Wallingford CT and before that the Director of the Sleep Disorders Centre at St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre, the first laboratory studying patients with sleep breathing problems in Canada. The research arm of the Centre has resulted in the publication of more than 200 research reports and book chapters. Kryger is the chief editor of the main textbook used in sleep medicine, The Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine, which is currently in its fifth edition. He is also the author of A Woman's Guide to Sleep Disorders. In this book Kryger shares what he has learned from treating over two thousand women with sleep problems.

Kryger's research has spanned the areas of sleep breathing disorders, especially neurological disorders affecting sleep of both adults and children, and sleep problems in women. Some of the research produced by his laboratory has had important impact on clinical practice. His laboratory was the first to show the feasibility of ventilating people with post-polio syndrome at home using noninvasive techniques. His laboratory elucidated the interaction between heart failure and sleep respiration and published the first systematic study of oxygen in this condition. He reported the first use of computers in analyzing sleep breathing patterns and validated techniques of monitoring in which diagnostic data as well as therapeutic data on CPAP is obtained during the same night. Kryger's laboratory has obtained research funding from government and industry sources from Canada, France, and the U.S. His research is funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

He has served the sleep medicine community in many roles including as president of both the Canadian Sleep Society and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He is on the Board of Directors of the National Sleep Foundation in Washington,D.C., serving as vice president and as chairman of the Education Committee. In 1996, he received the William C. Dement Award for Academic Achievement in sleep medicine. In 2011 he was received a Distinguished Scientist Award by the Canadian sleep Society at the World Association of Sleep medicine meeting. He has trained medical practitioners in sleep medicine from Canada, Australia, China, Japan, and Greece.

Kryger graduated from the McGill University Medicine School in 1971. He did his internship at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago and internal medicine at the Royal Victoria Hospital of McGill University in Montreal. He trained in pulmonary medicine at the University of Colorado, followed by two years of research training. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine.

Very good text - a core text for the postgraduate masters program at the Uni of Sydney in Sleep Medicine/Sleep Science. Although the written text is bulky and comprehensive, there is the added advantage of being able to access the whole textbook online. This is really great for the busy student/clinician/researcher on-the-go who does not wish to carry the whole textbook in his/her bag!

The pricing on Amazon is also very competitive which is an added bonus.

At just over 8 pounds, it's a bit heavy, but well organized, concise, comprehensive. The text is written with an enthusiasm that keeps the reader engaged, and unlike so many reference texts, an attention to history and detail that makes reading a joy.
