It builds upon previous units of study and aims to provide a thorough understanding of the clinical presentation and polysomnographic features of sleep disorders, as well as the various treatments currently used. These options include positive airway pressure, oral devices, lifestyle modification, surgery and non-invasive ventilation. The role of pharmacological agents, as well as behavioural modifications for the treatment of circadian disorders and insomnia are also discussed.
