determined only by a polysomnographic (PSG) evaluation: spend nights in 
sleep laboratory and measure eye movement (eletrooculogram), leg 
movement, respiration and oxygen desaturation, muscle movements

realistic (UFO)
-breathing related sleep disorders -loud snoring, interrupted breathing, sleep apnea (short period stop 
breathing), heavy sweating at night or headaches in the morning 
-obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome: airflow stops 
despite continued activity by the respiratory system (snoring); 
increasing in age might cause it
-central sleep apnea: complete cessation of respiratory activity 
for brief periods; associated with central nervous system 
disorders; not seek treatment by themselves
background image -sleep-related hypoventilation: a decrease in airflow without a 
complete pause in breathing
-circadian rhythm sleep disorder  -brain’s inability to synchronize sleep patterns with the current 
patterns of day and night

irregular sleep-wake (highly varied sleep cycle), non-24-hout sleep-
wake (later and later bed time)
-treatment:  -medication (not for long term use); continuous positive air pressure 
machine for obtrusive sleep apnea
-phase delay is easier to treat than phase advance 
-bright light 
-relaxation treatment 
-parasomnias -nightmares: awaken the person and distressful
-sleep terrors: most in children; begin with a piercing scream; NREM, so
not due to dream; cannot be easily awakened and comforted; 
treatment: wait and see or scheduled awakening 
-sleep walking (somnambulism): NREM, hard to awakened and not 
remember what has happened’ primarily in children 
-nocturnal eating syndrome: rise from bed and eat while still asleep
