ABSTRACT
Although sleep disorders medicine is a relatively young discipline, there has been a dramatic increase in knowledge about understanding of the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment of sleep disorders in the past 20 years. It is now possible to objectively diagnose most sleep disorders and specific treatments can be instituted. However, despite advances in our understanding of sleep disorders, accurate diagnosis and treatment always requires a detailed understanding of the patient's sleep/wake cycle and medical history. This overview discusses the role of history taking and questionnaires in diagnosing sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy, which are frequently confronted in primary care.
Keywords: Sleep disorder | Sleep history | Sleep questionnaire
