This chapter will give a brief overview of acute and chronic insomnia, including management issues, emphasizing the acute and emergent events related to insomnia per se as well as medications used to treat insomnia. Insomnia is classified as either primary insomnia (PI), in which the complaint cannot be attributed to another psychiatric or medical disorder, or secondary insomnia (SI), with symptoms resulting from the associated disorder.
