Summary
"Approximately 60 million Americans suffer from some kind of chronic sleep disorder or sporadic problem sleeping, according to the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research (NCSDR) of the National Institutes of Health. It is now documented that sleep deprivation can facilitate mistakes or accidents at work, mood swings, an increased chance of obesity, and drowsy driving, which causes an estimated 100,000 car crashes and 1,500 fatalities annually. Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, have been linked to an increased likelihood of stroke, hypertension, or heart failure. In recent years, researchers have made breakthroughs in understanding sleep, why it is crucial to general health, and what disrupts it." "The Encyclopedia of Sleep and Sleep Disorders, Third Edition examines the key terms, conditions, remedies, long-term health consequences, and advances that have been made in understanding sleep, including sleep research, sleep disorder diagnosis, and treatment. This timely revised edition covers more than 80 sleep disorders in more than 800 entries and includes three informative essays: "History of Sleep and Man," "Psychology of Sleep," and "Sociology of Sleep." A new introduction, helpful appendixes, a bibliography, a list of Web site resources, and an index complete this extensive reference."--Jacket
