- Examine new physiological evidence on the nature of sleeplessness alters evaluation and treatment approaches to chronic insomnia and mandates the use of polysomnography in a very large proportion of cases.
- Explain why prescription sedatives may be a premature step in the treatment of chronic insomnia, which in some cases delays comprehensive care.
- Review why co-morbid sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is not only very common in treatment-seeking chronic insomnia patients, but also evidence to date suggests treatment of SDB decreases insomnia symptoms.
