For progress to be maintained in a clinical field like sleep medicine, unimpeded, unrestricted access to data and the advances in clinical practice should be available. The reason why this book is exciting is that it breaks down the barriers to dissemination of information, providing scientists, physicians, researchers and interested individuals with a valuable insight into the latest diverse developments within the study of sleep disorders. This book is a collection of chapters, which can be viewed as independent units dealing with different aspects and issues connected to sleep disorders, having in common that they reflect leading edge ideas, reflections and observations. The authors take into account the medical and social aspects of sleep-related disorders, concentrating on different focus groups, from adults to pregnant women, adolescents, children and professional workers.

    When I wake up in the morning or from a nap I feel like I have been zapped. I’ve been told I have panic attacks or anxiety. I disagree because I only have these symptoms when I wake up. My life is not stressful and I don’t feel anxious. This started in October 2018 and occurs every day. The sudden jolt, pounding heart and throbbing head. I’ve tried several anti depressants and nothing helps.
