Feature: Diagnosing REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

By Emmanuel During, MD

Few topics in sleep medicine have in the recent years gained as much attention and scientific insights than REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD). RBD affects more than 1% of adults over 40 years of age and often results in injurious episodes of dream-enactment during REM sleep.

Despite critical insights and hopes for disease-modifying drugs, one area in RBD is lagging behind, that of diagnostics. Although RBD is relatively common, almost half patients are unaware of their condition, and only a minority of them will act out their dreams on an overnight PSG.
