Conflict of interest: Authors NDM, JK, MRN, VAU, and RB declare that they have no conflict of interest. Author BK reports: 6 main activities related to my work in sleep medicine:
For websites, I own and operate 6 sites that provide education and offer products and services for sleep disorders patients:www.nightmaretreatment.com: www.ptsdsleepclinic.com: www.sleeptreatment.com: www.sleepdynamictherapy.com: www.soundsleepsoundmind.com: www.nocturiacures.com.
For other professional services, I am the medical director of a national DME company Classic Sleep Care for which my sole functions are consultation and QA; I have neither patient encounters nor do I benefit from the sale of any DME equipment.
For intellectual property, I market and sell 3 books for sleep disorders patients: Insomnia Cures, Turning Nightmares into Dreams, and Sound Sleep, Sound Mind.
For clinical services, I own and operate one commercial sleep center: Maimonides Sleep Arts & Sciences, Ltd.
For educational and consulting services: I conduct CME/CEU educational programs for medical and mental health providers to learn about sleep disorders. Sometimes these programs involve the attendee paying a fee directly to our center. Other times, I conduct the workshops at other locations, which may be paid for by vendors such as Respironics and RESMED or other institutions such as the AMEDDC&S, VAMC, and regional sleep center conferences.
I am also president and principal investigator of a non-profit sleep research center, the Sleep & Human Health Institute (www.shhi.org) that occasionally provides consultation services or receives grants for pilot studies, the most recent: ResMed ∼$400,000 January 2015 (funding for randomized control trial of treatment in insomnia patients).
Funding: This research received funding from the non-profit Simon Foundation, Santa Fe, NM and non-profit Oxnard Foundation, Newport Beach, CA.
