Abstract

A diagnostic approach to sleep disorders currently used in psychiatry is discussed in the light of new classifications of mental disorders (ICD-10, DSM-IV). The authors present also their observations on sleep disorders in patients recently hospitalized at Psychiatry Wards of the Psychiatry Department, Medical Academy in Łódź. Moreover, psychiatrists' preferences concerning treatment methods in sleep disorders are analyzed.
