5.0 out of 5 stars Sleep Tech Pocket Guide- one problem October 12, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased the Sleep technician's pocket guide wich I enjoyed very much. The pocket format is an exceptional idea and very functional and easy to consult. However, I would like to alert you to a mistake I found on pages 32-33: the text below the titles has been repeated. The title "pen blocking" has the text to the title electrode popping.
Thanks and regards,
Israel Roitman

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Reference Ever!!!!!!! May 1, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This reference has everything a polysomnographer would need as a reference. I've already told several friends and instructors about it. It includes information on head measuring, staging, medications, ECG and numerous other reference materials. If you are a sleep tech you won't want to work without it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars too expensive August 10, 2013
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
On one hand this reference guide can come in handy for someone who isn't confident in their abilities as a sleep tech student. I was that such person at the beginning of my first clinical experience. However the price I paid for this book vs. the times I actually used it made it superfluous and and a waste of money.
