What is a sleep study?
Sleep studies, also known as polysomnography, are conducted while a child is asleep and is a completely non-invasive test. Such tests record your child's sleep patterns and brain waves, breathing and muscle activity. Problems with breathing, nerve or sleep disorders that occur during sleep often require a sleep study to make a correct diagnosis.
Under what circumstances does a child need a sleep study?
The doctor will consider scheduling a sleep check-up when your child has the following symptoms: sleeping with obvious snoring, frequent bed-wetting, intermittent sleepwalking, often talking in their sleep, and easily scared when they sleep, overweight, coupled with snoring or daytime fatigue, fitful sleeps or apnea, bruxism with obvious physical spasm, having sleep at night but feeling tired during the day, or obvious drowsiness, often falling asleep at school, or suddenly falling asleep while eating or walking, having enough sleep but still feeling exhausted and weak, or suddenly feeling weak or falling down when laughing heartily.
