New studies in Critical Care are finding that lack of sleep in the ICU can slow recovery. Disrupted sleep can cause problems with the immune system, resistance to infection, and wound healing. This timely new issue of Critical Care Clinics Guest Edited by Nancy Collop explores the affects of the ICU of normal sleep patterns. Topics such as Adverse Effects of Sleep Deprivation, Common Sleep Disorders in ICU Patients, and the Sleep Friendly ICU make this an up-to-date reference for all Emergency and Critical Care clinicians.
