This book brings a profound message of healing and hope to millions of people who suffer needlessly. Snoring and sleep apnea interfere with the normal processes of sleepand sleep is essential to health and life. This book presents, accurately and clearly, paths to diagnosis and effective treatment of sleep apnea so that those whose sleep is disturbed can become aware of the problem and overcome it.
Jerry Halberstadt and Scott Johnson have produced a very special account
of the problem of sleep apnea; the reason Phantom of the Night is so
informative is that it is written jointly by a sufferer and a physician. It
tells the real story of sleep apnea. It is not a stilted scientific report and
it is not a lay article, many of which have been written over the
years. Instead, it explains the science of sleep disorders medicine for the
patient. It demonstrates the crucial roles of the physician and the patient in
treating snoring and sleep apnea and the wonderful impact of proper care,
restoring the life of the patient.
I believe that the book should be read by every general practitioner
(GP)the primary care physicianso that they can hear about sleep
apnea from the sufferers perspective. It may thus help to advance medical
education by helping to overcome the resistance of physicians to sleep
disorders medicine which I encountered. I know that after you read this book
you will understand what snoring and sleep apnea are about; I know that you
will now also feel what it is about and identify with the sufferers and their
families. Of course, the book is a must for everyone with sleep apnea and their
