Pediatric Sleep Study

The pediatric sleep study helps provide diagnosis and treatment of breathing difficulties during sleep in infants, children and adolescents, difficulties falling or staying asleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, and unusual sleep-related behaviors.

Diagnosis may include:

  • History and physical examination

  • Sleep questionnaire

  • Sleep diary

  • Overnight oximetry

  • Polysomnography (sleep study)

  • Multiple sleep latency test (MSLT)

Sleep problems usually need to be approached by sleep medicine specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, behavioral specialists, otolaryngologists, and pediatric lung specialists. Your child may need to be evaluated by multiple specialists in order to resolve their sleep problems.
