The ICSD3 has significant changes in the overall classification from previous versions. The insomnia category has changed to a single major disorder called chronic insomnia disorder, and a short-term insomnia disorder for symptoms that are present less than 3 months. The sleep-related breathing disorders have been expanded into four main sections: obstructive sleep apnea disorders, central sleep apnea disorders, sleep-related hypoventilation disorders, and sleep-related hypoxemia disorder. Snoring and catathrenia are regarded as isolated symptoms or normal variants. The central disorders of hypersomnolence section include two forms of narcolepsy type 1 (NT1) and narcolepsy type 2 (NT2). Other hypersomnolence disorders include idiopathic hypersomnia and Kleine–Levin syndrome. The circadian rhythm disorders are largely unchanged from previous classifications. The parasomnias include three main groups: NREM-related parasomnias, REM-related parasomnias, and another parasomnia section. The final section is sleep-related movement disorders section which included restless legs syndrome, periodic limb movement disorder, and sleep-related leg cramps as well as other movement disorders.
