Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our lives, as well as that of all other mammals. As professionals, we have to deal with our own issues related to sleep in the world of everyday stresses of life along with changing time zones, noisy hotel rooms, and pressures of performance. As clinicians, we know that sleep problems are among the nearly universal and most distressful complaints by patients and their caregivers. Sleep disorders is an area where different medical specialties interact, including psychiatry, neurology, pulmonology, pediatrics, and geriatrics, to mention a few prominent ones. The management of sleep disturbances is made particularly challenging by a dearth of safe, effective, and affordable pharmacotherapies for sleep disorders.
