It has been 7 years since the first edition of the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS) Textbook on Sleep Medicine was published in 2014. Fast forward to August 2021, when 1000 copies of the 2nd Edition of the Sleep Medicine Textbook have finally touched down at the ESRS head office in Regensburg, Germany!
We are so thrilled to get our hands on the physical copy, and even more excited to bring our first digital version of the textbook to life. Each one comes with a unique code to access the digital content.
About the Sleep Medicine Textbook
The Sleep Medicine Textbook 2nd Ed. is a state of the art, significantly expanded, comprehensive publication, structured around the Revised Sleep Medicine Catalogue of Knowledge and Skills. The textbook is comprised of 15 sections, 92 chapters and over 1100 pages written by experts in the field. It provides a European approach to sleep medicine education, and primarily represents the knowledge base for the ESRS-endorsed sleep medicine examinations. However, all practitioners in sleep medicine and science are encouraged to order the textbook and adopt it for additional teaching needs.
The Table of Content and Preface provides a more in-depth look at the material that is covered in the textbook. And as you’ll see, it covers the entire range of clinical specialties. This was a new approach to address the growing interest of practitioners of those specialties in sleep and sleep related disorders.
We’d like to thank the 150+ contributors, including the Editors and Section Editors, Authors and Co-Authors and ESRS Board and Staff, who have worked tediously over the past year to make the textbook a reality.
