The handbook is relatively brief but to the point; its strength lies in its clarity. Prevalence, predisposing factors, physiological and cardiovascular effects, and treatment strategies are all addressed. The chapter on medical complications highlights the importance of injury to the cardiovascular system by sleep apnoea. Emerging concepts of sleep apnoea being a form of an inflammatory disease are presented.
