Offering a practical approach to the introduction of sleep medicine, this easy-to-use, concise volume uses actual patient cases from the Cleveland Clinic Sleep Disorders Center. A wide spectrum of diagnoses are included to expose the reader to the extensive range of sleep-wake disorders that a patient can experience. Written in a concise format designed to illustrate the signs and symptoms, diagnostic criteria, workup and routine treatment of patients presenting to the sleep clinic, this volume serves as a practical text perfect for the busy primary-care practitioner seeking to improve her knowledge of sleep-wake disorders. Whenever possible, tracings from diagnostic tests, photography, and video clips are provided to enhance clinical presentations and to aid in recognition of abnormities identified in the sleep laboratory.

"Dr. Foldvary-Schaefer appears to be very well qualified in our field to put together such a project (and quite a prolific author)...the table of contents is thoroughly inclusive and comprehensive....I think the timing is also favorable for such a book...Iwould recommend that you go forward with the proposal."
Stephen N. Brooks, M.D., Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305
" Is the timing right for this sort of publication? Sleep is hot right now in the public and medical community. There are not a lot of case based texts at present.
Is the Table of Contents sufficiently comprehensive or are key topics of discussion missing? (Please keep in mind that only 52 cases will be presented.) The topics as outlined are appropriate broad based and cover the major sleep problems
Would you recommend that OUP offer a publishing agreement? I think the project is reasonable."
- Michael H. Kohrman MS. MD., Department of Pediatrics and Neurology, University Of Chicago, Chicago IL, 60637

"A Case a Week: Sleep Disorders from the Cleveland Clinic is a fantastic resource for trainees just getting started in sleep medicine as well as for those already deeply immersed in its practice. One of the hallmarks of any good nonfiction book is that it brings the reader to look at an old problem from a new angle and to consider aspects not previously seen. This compilation of clinical cases does exactly that, many times over." -- Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine
