Sleep Program Services
Valley Children’s Sleep Medicine Program provides a variety of services and sleep studies, including but not limited to:
- Polysomnography (PSG): A PSG is an overnight sleep study used to evaluate aspects that can impact sleep, such as:
- Sleep disordered breathing
- Abnormalities in sleep staging
- Sleep movement disorders
- Cardiac monitoring
- Electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring
- CPAP/BiPAP Study: A CPAP or BiPAP titration study is an overnight procedure performed in children who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. During the study, the child wears a mask which provides pressurized air to allow the patient to breathe during sleep.
- Multiple sleep latency test (MSLT): A MSLT is daytime procedure performed the morning and afternoon after the child has undergone a sleep study the night before. It is a series of nap trials to measure daytime sleepiness. It is a tool in diagnosing narcolepsy.
- Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT): The purpose of a MWT test is to determine if the treatment a child is receiving to address their narcolepsy is sufficient.
- Sleep Education: Valley Children’s is dedicated to patient-family centered care, which includes ensuring all of our patients and families receive sleep education.
