    From the Foreword by William C. Dement, M.D.

    William Charles Dement, M.D., Ph.D. is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has helped to found and lead the modern scientific study and treatment of sleep and wakefulness. He was appointed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to serve as Chairman of the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, reporting to Congress with recommendations for a national sleep research program.

    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 sleep—and 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.

    From the Introduction by Colin E. Sullivan

    Dr. Colin E. Sullivan, B.Sc.(Med.), M.B. B.S., Ph.D., F.R.A.C.P. is the pioneer who invented and demonstrated nasal CPAP as an effective treatment for sleep apnea syndrome.

    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 physician—so 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 families.
