The sleep disorders are classified by dyssomnias, parasomnias, sleep disorders associated with mental, neurologic, or other medical disorders and proposed sleep disorders.
 
The International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) consists of disorders primarily associated with disturbances of sleep and wakefulness, as well as disorders that intrude into or occur during sleep. The classification provides a unique code number for each sleep disorder so that disorders can be efficiently tabulated for diagnostic, statistical, and research purposes. The primary aim of the text is to provide useful diagnostic information. Diagnostic, severity, and duration criteria are presented, as is an axial system whereby clinicians can standardize the presentation of relevant information regarding a patient's disorder.
Scoring
N/A-There is no scoring for these criteria as they are intended to serve as guidelines for diagnosing sleep disorders.
