As a parent, watching a child suffer from a respiratory disorder can be frightening and worrisome. Our respiratory specialists provide compassionate care for a wide-range of pediatric respiratory disorders. We also oversee one of the largest cystic fibrosis programs in the country.
At one time or another, most parents have coped with a child who will not sleep. Sleep disturbances are common in childhood, with almost 20-40 percent of children having experienced them at some point while growing up. Sleep disturbances can be caused by true sleep disorders, neurological problems, heart and lung problems, gastrointestinal disturbances, behavioral and developmental disorders as well as psychiatric disorders.
