Child Sleep Disorders: Conditions We Treat
Laboratory Services for Sleeping Disorders in Children
Our pediatric sleep center is specially designed to study sleep disorders and performs a variety of polysomnography studies, many of which examine breathing problems during sleep. The lab contains state-of-the-art polysomnography equipment, a diagnostic tool that helps evaluate and manage pediatric sleep disorders.
Pediatric Sleep Studies
To diagnose child sleep disorders, we recommend your child participate in a sleep study. Our pediatric sleep specialists have over 30 years of experience treating these disorders and have been conducting sleep studies for over 15 years.
During the study, a physician will place sensors on your child’s head to record their electrical brain activity and assess their stages of sleep. A sleep technologist will then monitor your child throughout the night, analyzing their sleep quality and length. After the study, our pediatric sleep specialists will evaluate the sleep disorder to ensure your child receives the most appropriate and effective care possible.
