Self-report measures as complementary exams in the diagnosis of insomnia

Revista Portuguesa de Investigação Comportamental e Social , Volume 6, pp 97-98; doi:10.31211/rpics.2020.6.1.161

Abstract: [This paper has no First 111 words are shown] Chronic insomnia disorder (CID) is a highly prevalent sleep disorder and a public health problem (Riemann et al., 2017). It is well recognized as a subjective disorder. Subjective because the diagnosis is fundamentally based on the self-report/complaints of the patients and in the clinical assessment of the sleep expert through a systematic clinical interview – which is the standard method (gold standard) for establishing a diagnosis of CID (Marques et al., 2018). On the contrary, the diagnosis of other sleep disorders demands the so-called objective measures such as polysomnography (PSG) (Riemann et al., 2017). We cannot forget that being CID a subjective disorder, it is important to be exhaustive in clinical assessment.
