Sleep Studies for Children & Adult
Sleep is a crucial aspect of every living being on earth. During sleep, body and brain repair themselves to prepare for next day's activities, including learning, problem solving, memorizing, and critical judgment processes. These are critical functions of the brain which are impaired due to poor quality and quantity of sleep. Children are more affected by poor quality sleep as their brain is developing at young age..
Sleep apnea is common in both adult and children. It is defined as closure of airway during sleep which results in fluctuation of oxygen resulting in interrupted sleep. Sleep study or polysomnography is considered the gold standard test for diagnosis of sleep apnea and other breathing difficulties during sleep. These require overnight stay in the sleep lab.
We conduct sleep studies to diagnose breathing difficulties during sleep along with other sleep related disorders such as periodic leg movements, etc. We have established a 4 bed sleep lab staffed with qualified personnel who will work with you to formulate an individualized treatment plan to ensure the best quality of sleep possible.
