Breathing Disorders in Sleep is an authorative reference for all those involved in the clinical investigation and care of patients with sleep-related respiratory disorders. Information is provided in a logical sequence, divided initially into Physiology and Pathophysiology of Sleep and Respiration, Sleep Apnoea and Sleep in Other Respiratory Disorders. From the foundation mechanisms involved, followed by clinical presentation through to management, clinical investigation and diagnosis, McNicholas and Phillipson have defined the current state-of-the-art in a rapidly growing and increasingly complex area.
