Disturbi del sonno

Curare l'insonnia senza farmaci. Metodi di valutazione e intervento cognitivo-comportamentale

Alessandra Devoto, Cristiano Violani

editore: Carocci

pagine: 238

L'insonnia è un disturbo molto diffuso, causato da molteplici fattori e spesso associato a disagi fisici e mentali. I medici di famiglia, ai quali in genere si rivolgono i soggetti che ne soffrono, privilegiano valutazioni anamnestiche rapide e trattamenti farmacologici, spesso non risolutivi del disturbo. Una valida alternativa è rappresentata dai trattamenti basati sulle attuali conoscenze dei processi psicobiologici di regolazione del sonno. Si tratta di interventi brevi, focalizzati sul sonno, facilmente integrabili con tecniche di conclamata efficacia di tipo cognitivo-comportamentale. Tale approccio, qui descritto, rappresenta una strategia molto efficace sia come trattamento centrato sul disturbo del sonno, sia come trattamento combinabile con altre farmacoterapie e psicoterapie. Il volume si propone come strumento agile e pragmatico per psicologi e/o professionisti del campo sanitario, ma anche per specializzandi in psicoterapia e studenti dei corsi di laurea specialistici in Psicologia e in Scienze della salute.

I disturbi del sonno e la prevenzione dei danni da lavoro e degli infortuni. Atti del Convegno (Pisa, novembre 2007)

a cura di L. Murri, E. Bonanni

editore: Plus

pagine: 104

Il volume raccoglie gli atti del Convegno "I disturbi del sonno e la prevenzione dei danni da lavoro e degli infortuni in itinere", svoltosi nel novembre 2007 a Pisa, che ha rappresentato un'occasione per discutere e confrontarsi sull'importanza del sonno e delle sue patologie nell'ambito della medicina del lavoro. Vista l'estrema frequenza della riduzione e delle alterazioni del sonno da un lato e dall'altro del lavoro turnista, l'effetto negativo sulle performance lavorative e le conseguenze personali e sociali non possono essere sottovalutate ed anzi sono tali da diventare un problema di salute pubblica. La collaborazione tra medici del lavoro ed esperti in medicina del sonno è necessaria per ottenere una migliore opera di prevenzione, con importanti ricadute sociali ed economiche. Il volume vuole quindi costituire un ausilio sia per la valutazione diretta dei disturbi del sonno in ambito lavorativo e professionale sia nel percorso informativo e formativo di personale sanitario, aziende e lavoratori nella ricerca del migliore equilibrio possibile tra le necessità biologiche del ritmo sonno-veglia e le esigenze produttive ed i turni di lavoro distribuiti nelle 24 ore.

Il sonno e i suoi disturbi

Elio Lugaresi

editore: Il Mulino

pagine: 132

Fenomeno affascinante e ancora in parte misterioso senza il quale sarebbe impossibile vivere, il sonno regola la qualità della nostra vita, il nostro umore, la nostra efficienza durante la giornata. Dormire male è causa di diversi malesseri e disturbi e l'insonnia può essere la spia di altre patologie. Lugaresi, esperto internazionale della medicina del sonno, sintetizza in questo piccolo libro uno dei capitoli più importanti della medicina. Dopo una breve storia della ricerca sul sonno dall'antichità alle basilari scoperte del ventesimo secolo, ci spiega cosa avviene nel nostro cervello mentre dormiamo, ci parla delle insonnie e dei molti altri disturbi legati al sonno, indicando anche le terapie e i possibili rimedi.

Il libro del sonno. Viaggio nella metà buia della nostra vita

Peter Spork

editore: Longanesi

pagine: 313

Un saggio che tratta con competenza uno dei grandi misteri della vita di tutti gli esseri viventi: il sonno. L'argomento è affrontato a 360 gradi, con un occhio particolarmente attento ai risultati più aggiornati della ricerca scientifica in materia, all'impatto sociale di una trasformazione delle abitudini di vita che snaturano il sonno e ai disturbi che troppo spesso vi sono assodati. Il libro è diviso in tre parti, la prima delle quali è interamente dedicata al mistero del sonno, con una preziosa carrellata sui momenti fondamentali della storia della ricerca medica nel settore. Si scopre così, tra l'altro, che anche gli insetti dormono, ma con cicli brevissimi di qualche minuto. La seconda parte tratta della necessità del sonno (sapevate che una lunga privazione può causare danni permanenti al cervello?), e fornisce anche un decalogo di comportamenti corretti per poter scivolare dolcemente nel mondo dei sogni.

Insomnia

Principles and Management

David F. Dinges, Jacqueline D. Kloss
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 306

Despite its prevalence, insomnia remains poorly understood, mainly because of the lack of clear scientific data supporting the many approaches used. Millions of sufferers turn to alcohol, melatonin or over-the-counter sleep aids, despite the risks and lack of empirical evidence supporting the efficacy or safety of these agents. This book is the first of its kind to collate the up-to-date scientific data in order to identify the gaps in our knowledge and improve clinical management. A highly distinguished team of contributors examines the most recent findings and points where research should be heading. They cover the nature and prevalence of insomnia throughout the lifespan; the molecular, neuropharmacological, and neuroanatomical systems of relevance to insomnia, and the impact of related problems (such as shift work, industrial accidents, mood disorders, and other sleep disorders). This is essential reading for all health care professionals engaged in the management of insomnia.

Concise Guide to Evaluation and Management of Sleep Disorders

John Ruddy, Kim Nagel
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 336

Sleep disorders medicine has only recently come of age, as getting enough sleepAand getting restful sleepAhas become more elusive than ever in todayAs fast-paced world. Despite being one of the most common complaints among psychiatric patients (170 sleep disorders are now identified), sleep disorders are still not included in most medical or health careArelated curricula. The third edition of this truly Apocket-sizedA volume fills that void. Designed to provide the clinician with a practical approach to the differential diagnosis and effective treatment of sleep complaints and disorders and an up-to-date summary of sleep disorders medicine, this compact volume from American Psychiatric Publishing's Concise Guides series shows clinicians how to use a conceptual framework and decision trees to facilitate diagnosis. In just eight easy-to-read chapters, the authors present the latest research and practice on sleep disorders. After an overview that includes diagnostic nomenclature, laboratory procedures, and how to use a sleep disorders center, -Chapters 2A5 discuss individual sleep disorders, each organized by presenting complaints, clinical presentation, incidence, etiology and pathophysiology, laboratory findings, differential diagnosis, and treatment (behavioral, medical, and surgical techniques). Topics include virtually every aspect of -Sleep physiology and pathology, e.g., sleep architecture, sleep and immune function, circadian rhythms, dreams and nightmares, and sleep deprivation -Insomnia (occasional insomnia alone occurs in about 27%, and chronic insomnia in about 9%, of the U.S. population) related to substance abuse, shift work sleep disorder, restless legs syndrome, and sleep apnea -Excessive sleepiness disorders, e.g., narcolepsy; hypersomnias associated with sleep-related breathing disorders; nocturnal hypoxemia; and periodic hypersomnias, including Kleine-Levin syndrome, menstruation-associated hypersomnia, and periodic limb movements disorder -Parasomnias associated with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, sleep paralysis, sleepwalking and sleep terrors, bruxism, muscle cramps, and central nervous system (CNS) parasomnias such as vascular headaches -Chapter 6 details the symptoms of specific medical conditions (e. g., cardiac and CNS diseases, Epstein-Barr virus, arthritis, anorexia nervosa, and AIDS) behind disordered sleep and psychiatric disorders behind both insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness. -Chapter 7 covers pharmacological treatments (sedative-hypnotics from benzodiazepines to melatonin and alternative medications). -Chapter 8 concludes with thought-provoking discussions of sleep problems in children from infancy through adolescence, the elderly, and women (in pregnancy, premenstrual syndrome, and menopause). Thoroughly referenced and illustrated, this fascinating work is intended for students, educators, and clinicians everywhere as they face the increasingly widespread challenge of successfully diagnosing and treating sleep disorders.

Clinicians' Guide to Sleep Medicine

N Douglas

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 264

Adequate sleep is essential for our work and safety, yet the importance of disorders of sleep in causing symptoms and impairment of quality of life has only recently been appreciated. Awareness of these conditions among general physicians is limited, a situation perpetuated by the lack of teaching on the topic that both undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors in training receive. "Clinicians' Guide to Sleep Medicine" puts the subject into context for the GP and general hospital physician, presenting the current knowledge of sleep related problems and their treatments in an accessible manner. Topics covered include sleep apnoea / hypnoea syndrome, narcolepsy, snoring, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, night terrors, and sleep walking. Investigation of patients with sleep disorders, and rational selection of therapy are also considered. With a balanced, readable style and clear explanatory illustrations, this book will enable practicing physicians to draw on the experience of an acknowledged international expert in the field and deal with the common sleep disorders with understanding and confidence.

e altri

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 230

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 159 The Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) is the first evaluative measure of motor function designed for quantifying change in the gross motor abilities of children with cerebral palsy. The measure is widely used internationally, and is now the standard outcome assessment tool for clinical intervention in cerebral palsy. This new version (GMFM-66) is completely revised, largely new, and has been improved through Rasch analysis. GMFM-66 transforms the standard GMFM into an interval measure; provides an 'item map' of the relative difficulty among items; and includes a user-friendly, computer-assisted software program to aid in scoring and interpretation of GMFM data. This is included, with a printed scoresheet, on a CD-ROM enclosed in the book. The expertise of the authors comprises paediatrics, design, engineering and physiotherapy. They have over years devised and run research at the CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada.
