Acute and Emergent Events in Sleep Disorders

Gregory S. Carter, MD, PhD
Arch Neurol. 2012;69(7):936. doi:10.1001/archneurol.2012.732.
Text Size: A A A
Published online


Sleep deprivation has been associated with tragic automobile and industrial accidents. Sleep-related breathing disorders have been associated with cardiac arrhythmias and stroke. These chronic sleep-related conditions too often present with catastrophic events. The editors have sought, in this first of its kind volume, to emphasize these dangerous and sudden consequences of chronic, and especially untreated, sleep disorders. The editors are distinguished academics who have devoted their careers to the education of clinical professionals in the pathophysiology and treatment of sleep disorders. The editors assembled a group of knowledgeable and respected clinicians to write the 30 chapters of this volume. The editors approached their subject of acute and emergent events not from the events themselves but from the chronic conditions that gave rise to the events. The result was that, although individual chapters were quite informative, there were redundant discussions of similar emergent events occurring out of different sleep or medical pathologies.
