  • Chronotherapy may be useful for a delayed sleep phase disorder, as well as properly timed melatonin administration.

  • Circadian phase markers are useful to determine circadian phase and confirm the diagnosis of FRD in sighted and unsighted patients. In addition, prescribed sleep/wake scheduling as a method to improve circadian rhythms may be useful for therapy of FRD in sighted individuals. Further, circadian phase shifting by timed light exposure or timed melatonin administration may be used to treat FRD in sighted and blind individuals.

  • Daytime light exposure may improve circadian rest-activity rhythms and consolidation of sleep and wake in nursing home residents with dementia and irregular sleep-wake rhythm disorder.

The expanding science of circadian rhythm biology and a growing literature in human clinical research on CRSDs prompted the AASM to convene a task force of experts to write a review of this important topic, said Timothy I. Morgenthaler, MD, of the May
