About this book


This book provides a thorough, multidisciplinary review of the latest research and clinical approaches in the field of sleep disorders. It illustrates the variance of complications, symptoms, and issues sleep disorders cause during different stages of a woman’s life.
This updated, comprehensive edition begins with an overview of sleep disorders in women, followed by a section dedicated to examining sleep disorders in women during adolescence. Subsequent chapters then focus on treating pregnant women with sleep disorders, which include conditions such as restless legs syndrome, that arise during the gestational period as well as those like narcolepsy, whose management offers unique challenges during pregnancy and lactation. The book concludes with information on the specific issues caused by sleep disorders faced by women during and after menopause.
Sleep Disorders in Women, 3rd Edition serves as an important addition to the literature and is an invaluable resource for neurologists, sleep medicine specialists, OB/GYNs, internal medicine physicians, family practitioners, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
