Sleep lab brings sweet dreams to young patients

Most nights, between 12 percent and 15 percent of children snore. Of that percentage, about one in five suffer from sleep apnea.

The sleep lab at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital can help physicians detect sleep apnea, and many other sleep disorders that affect children.

Removing large tonsils will be effective eighty percent of sleep-related breathing problems in children. A sleep study can help identify problems where other tests cannot.

A sleep study is recommended if your patient has any of the following symptoms, and the underlying cause is unclear:

  • Snoring
  • Pauses in breathing
  • Behavioral issues
  • Multiple problems affecting the upper airway, such as malformations
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Weight gain/obesity
  • Enuresis (bed-wetting)

A sleep study can also be helpful for patients who have had their tonsils removed, but are still suffering from lost sleep.

In addition, shorter daytime sleep studies are available for infants.

Missing out on sleep can affect a child’s behavior, appetite, growth and even his or her performance in school. So diagnosing and fixing a sleep problem is always a priority.

Having a good night’s sleep is essential to everyone, and at every point in life. We are only now beginning to understand how important a factor sleep deprivation is, especially in kids.
