Diagnostic and therapeutic considerations in sleep disorders
Salas RE, Gamaldo CE

Abstract: Objective: To review diagnostic and therapeutic considerations with regard to sleep disorders. Methods: Literature review. Results: Between 50 and 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders annually. Sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of deleterious health consequences and impose an enormous public health burden. Patients who present with a sleep complaint can be divided into those with difficulty acquiring good quality sleep and those suffering from excessive daytime sleepiness. A sleep history is key to making the proper diagnosis. Conclusion: Untreated sleep disorders can negatively impact personal health and public health and safety. It is important for physicians to be aware of sleep problems and their appropriate evaluation and treatment.
