Sleep disorders don’t just happen to adults. Children are vulnerable to them as well and often require special attention. When your child needs a sleep study, it’s important a provider understands the special needs of pediatric patients. If your child is referred for a pediatric sleep study, or polysomnogram, here is what you need to know.
Kids are often anxious about sleep studies. But you can reassure them by letting them know that sleep studies don’t involve needles and are painless. During the test, electrodes will be attached to your child to measure brain waves, muscle movement, eye movement, heart rate, and more. Sleep experts will also watch your child sleep to gather important diagnostic information.
