  title={B. Assessment of sleep disorders and diagnostic procedures 1. Classification of sleep disorders},
  author={Raffae Le Ferr},
• The International Classification of Sleep Disorders, third edition (ICSD-3) is the current, most advanced classification of sleep disorders devoted to sleep experts. • The ICSD-3 includes six main clinical divisions: insomnia, sleep-related breathing disorders, central disorders of hypersomnolence, circadian rhythm sleep–wake disorders, parasomnias and sleep-related movement disorders. • A supplementary category has also been included, ‘other sleep disorder’, in order to assign a code to…

Sleep disturbances in obsessive-compulsive disorder: influence of depression symptoms and trait anxiety
The findings support the existence of sleep disturbances in OCD and show that trait anxiety and depression play a key role in sleep quality among OCD patients.
Idiopathic Central Sleep Apnea: A Case Report
ICSA is a rare sleep breathing disorder presenting with CSA, and may be misdiagnosed with other causes of CSA in the cases of non-appropriate medical evaluation, and there is no definite treatment.
EEG Patterns Prior to Motor Activations of Parasomnias: A Systematic Review
The investigation of EEG patterns before parasomniac episodes could provide new insight into the study of NREM parasomnia pathophysiology and the high- and low-frequency EEG increase before the episodes could represent a predictive electrophysiological pattern of the motor activations’ onset.
Shift Work Disorder and Mental and Physical Effects of Shift Work
The aim of this rewiev, mentioning about the physical and mental effects of shift work, and to provide information about the diagnosis, clinic and treatment methods of shift-work disorder.
Profile of sleep disordered breathing in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
A higher frequency of SDB is observed in HFpEF patients, and a significant correlation of apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) severity correlates with degree of diastolic dysfunction.
Sleep bruxism is related to decreased inhibitory control of trigeminal motoneurons, but not with reticulobulbar system
Results suggest an abnormally decreased inhibition in trigeminal motoneurons to masseter muscle rather than reticulobulbar pathways in patients with SB, which provides support for the decreased inhibitory control of the central masticatory circuits in SB.
The efficacy of a herbal complex (Gingko biloba, Panax ginseng, Bacopa monerii and Rhodiola rosea) in the management of excessive daytime sleepiness
The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of a herbal complex in the management of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in terms of Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS) and Stanford Sleepiness Scale (SSS) confirming the herbal complex superior effect over placebo in the treatment of EDS.


Normative EMG values during REM sleep for the diagnosis of REM sleep behavior disorder.
For the diagnosis of iRBD and RBD associated with PD, a polysomnographic montage quantifying "any" (any type of EMG activity, irrespective of whether it consisted of tonic, phasic or a combination of both) is recommended.
Polysomnographic diagnosis of idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder
The diagnostic value of a visual scoring method for the diagnosis of idiopathic RBD is estimated and cut‐off values to be used in clinical and research set‐ups are established.
Correlates of sleep-onset REM periods during the Multiple Sleep Latency Test in community adults.
A high prevalence of narcolepsy without cataplexy is suggested, as defined by the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, and/or a large number of false-positives for the Multiple Sleep Latency Test.
The multiple sleep latency test and Epworth sleepiness scale in the assessment of daytime sleepiness
It is argued that the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) not only costs about 1000 times less than the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) but also serves as a superior gold standard measure of excessive daytime sleepiness (Johns, 2000).
Respiratory-related leg movements and their relationship with periodic leg movements during sleep.
The time structure of leg movements occurring in conjunction with respiratory events exhibit features of periodic leg movements in sleep occurring alone, only with a different and longer period.
The time structure of leg movement activity during sleep: the theory behind the practice.
Daytime continuous polysomnography predicts MSLT results in hypersomnias of central origin
The occurrence of multiple spontaneous SOREMPs during daytime clearly identified patients with narcolepsy, as well as during the MSLT, and the features of spontaneous daytime sleep well correlated with MSLT findings.
