This book is a clinically relevant and educational resource for sleep specialists, practitioners, and sleep or pulmonary trainees in the management of complicated sleep disordered breathing. It tackles complicated sleep breathing disorders by discussing their epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical significance, physical findings, and their diagnosis and management.
Organized into 21 chapters, opening chapters cover a variety of sleep apnea manifestations including hypercapnic obstructive sleep apnea, complex breathing disorders and strokes. Subsequent chapters discuss detailed approaches to PAP titrations based on best evidence, current guidelines, or expert opinion. Treatment options, complications, comorbidities, and sleep apnea in specific demographics such as pregnant women are also addressed.
Complex Sleep Breathing Disorders: A Clinical Casebook of Challenging Patients is a necessary resource for all sleep trainees and pulmonary fellows, as well as a resource for sleep specialists including sleep technicians.
