Sleep Lab

Sleep Lab

Chronic lack of sleep may affect a person’s health, job or school performance, memory, mood and behavior. And if children and teens don’t get enough sleep, the entire family may be affected by disrupted sleep.

Our center brings together a team of pediatric neurologists, pulmonologists, developmental-behavioral pediatricians, ear-nose-throat specialists and others to help children and families cope with, and often eliminate, severe sleep disruptions. We have sleep testing suites and showers so families can clean up in the morning after their child's sleep study.

Indications for Referral

The following checklist may help determine if achild should have a sleep disorder evaluation. If more than three statements are true, especially statements 1-4, the child or teen should be evaluated for a sleep disorder.

Sleep disorders are more common in children who are obese or who have craniofacial problems, neurological problems or developmental delays. A sleep study may also be recommended if your child’s sleep problems last longer than a few weeks and interfere with how she feels and functions during the day.

We recommend that a sleep diary is kept for the child for a week or two, when he naps, goes to bed, wakes up and and anything that seems to affect his sleep.

For more information or to make a referral, call 330-543-8885.
