Nessun dorma. Insonnia, narcolessia e altre disavventure notturne

Henry Nicholls

editore: Codice

pagine: 352

Che fosse l'effetto del jet lag o semplicemente lo stress per il lavoro, tutti quanti prima o poi siamo passati attraverso notti infinite che ci hanno lasciato tutt'altro che riposati. Ma per alcuni dormire male, o non dormire affatto, non è solo un inconveniente passeggero: è un incubo. Henry Nicholls usa la sua personale esperienza di narcolettico come porta d'ingresso per capire il misterioso, affascinante e per molti versi ancora sconosciuto mondo dei disordini del sonno. Incontreremo insonni che non riescono mai a dormire, narcolettici che al contrario non riescono a gestire gli improvvisi attacchi di sonno e vittime di apnea notturna che mentre dormono rischiano letteralmente la vita. Scopriremo cosa differenzia i nottambuli dai mattinieri, come mai i nostri ritmi di sonno cambiano con l'età e il significato evolutivo del sonno REM e dei sogni.

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 560

There has been a rapid global increase in the number of individuals making sleep medicine their career, resulting in an explosive growth in the number of sleep centres and programmes, as well as an increasing number of sleep societies and journals. Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Sleep Disorders covers the rapid advances in scientific, technical, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of sleep medicine which have captivated sleep scientists and clinicians. This text aims to introduce sleep disorders within the context of classical neurological diseases, giving an in-depth coverage of the topic in a logical and orderly way, while emphasizing the practical aspects in a succinct and lucid manner. Divided into 12 sections, this book begins by discussing the basic science (Section 1), before moving onto the laboratory evaluation (Section 2) and the clinical science (Section 3). The remainder of the book focuses on specific sleep disorders (Sections 4-12), from insomnias and parasomnias to sleep neurology and sleep and psychiatric disorders. Chapters are supplemented by tables, case reports, and illustrations intended to succinctly provide relevant information in a practical manner for diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, while always emphasizing clinical-behavioural-laboratory correlations.

Sleepiness and Human Impact Assessment

Sergio Garbarino

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 329

The World Health Organization supports tools and initiatives in Health Impact Assessment to dynamically improve health and well-being across different sectors. Human Impact Assessment (HuIA) is a relatively new concept. It describes an integrated process that encompasses both Health Impact Assessment and Social Impact Assessment and is used to anticipate the effects of programs, projects and decisions on human health and welfare. Sleep occupies approximately one-third of our lives, but its human impact remains largely unrecognized. The prevalence of excessive sleepiness is recognized to be increasing in industrialized societies. Without doubt, sleepiness and fatigue have high costs in terms of both lives lost and socioeconomic impact. For example, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that up to 4% of all fatal crashes are caused by drowsy drivers and that as many as 100,000 deaths per year in the United States may be due to fatigue-related medical errors. Sleepiness and Human Impact Assessment provides a uniquely comprehensive exploration of many different facets of sleepiness in our 24-hour society from the new HuIA point of view. Among the covered issues are the physiology and pathophysiology of sleep, its relationship to daytime alertness, fatigue and drugs, the relevance of sleep-related fatigue in various occupational settings and public safety. This book will be of assistance to physicians, occupational health professionals, ergonomists, researchers and decision-makers as they strive to understand the full significance of sleepiness and to create a culture of accountability in everyday life without sleep-related risks.

Sleep and Movement Disorders

Arthur S. Walters, Pasquale Montagna
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 800

Sleep and Movement Disorders is the second edition of a successful book that was the first of its kind. Since its publication in 2002, significant progress has been made in our understanding of motor control in sleep and the relationship between sleep and movement disorders. All three editors are authorities on the subject and have assembled expert specialists for their chapter authors. The topic is very timely, the latest edition of the International classification of sleep disorders (ICSD-2, 2005) included a separate category of 'Sleep Related Movement Disorders' emphasizing the increasing awareness of sleep-related movements and the importance of recognizing sleep-related movement disorders for diagnosis, differential diagnosis and treatment. This is a comprehensive resource, including all findings from the last 8 years of research. All the previous chapters have been revised with new materials and references. Several chapters have been added to address recent advances. For instance, new sleep-related disorders have been classified and diagnosed, including catathrenia, alternating leg muscle activation (ALMA), propriospinal myoclonus (PSM) at sleep onset, faciomandibular myoclonus at sleep onset, etc. Further understanding of the pathophysiology of RLS-PLMS is addresses, as is the neurobiology of REM Behavior Disorder (RBD), predictors of neurodegenerative diseases, and so on. Sleep and Movement Disorders is divided into four major sections and subsections preceded by an introductory essay to provide perspective on the subject. The book is intended for all sleep and movement disorders specialists as well as those neurologists, internists including pulmonologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, otolaryngologists, pediatricians, neurosurgeons, dentists and family physicians who must deal with the many patients suffering from undiagnosed or underdiagnosed sleep disorders including sleep-related abnormal movements.
