Beginning with a comprehensive sleep history and physical examination, we start our journey into approaching a diagnosis. The ultimate diagnosis is done by polysomnography, also known as an overnight sleep study. By attaching leads to various points on the child's body to monitor sleep quality, structure, and the effort of breathing. We record brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye and leg movements during the study. We encourage children to bring soothing items from home, maybe a favorite Teddy Bear or movie.

Patients are monitored for quality and quantity of their sleep, in addition to breathing patterns and bodily movements. Continuous monitoring is provided by our sleep technologists during the study. Most sleep studies require overnight stays. We also offer a Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT), which is a sleep test that is done during the day, quantifies sleepiness, and serves as the diagnostic test for narcolepsy.
