Sleep-Wake Disorders : Changes from DSM IV to DSM 5Posted by : Dr. Vaibhav Dubey
- Greater specification of coexisting conditions is provided for each sleep-wake disorder
- In DSM-5, the DSM-IV diagnoses named sleep disorder related to another mental disorder and sleep disorder related to another medical condition have been removed.
- The diagnosis of primary insomnia has been renamed insomnia disorder to avoid the differentiation between primary and secondary insomnia.
- DSM-5 also distinguishes narcolepsy—now known to be associated with hypocretin deficiency—from other forms of hypersomnolence(hypersomnolence disorder)
- Breathing-related sleep disorders are divided into three relatively distinct disorders:a) obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea b)central sleep apnea c)sleep-related hypoventilation.
- The subtypes of circadian rhythm sleep disorders are expanded to include advanced sleep phase type and irregular sleep-wake type, whereas the jet lag type has been removed. The use of the former “not otherwise specified” diagnoses in DSM-IV have been reduced by elevating rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder and restless legs syndrome to independent disorders.
