When to consider sleep evaluation

Look for these signs of Insufficient Sleep:

• Frequently awakens tired and crabby in the morning and following naps.

• Falls asleep in the car, in a highchair or while watching T.V. when it is not nap time.

• Appears unusually clingy and will not let mom out of sight intermittently during the day, especially between 4 and 6 p.m.

• Has to be awakened most mornings and looks as if he/ she could easily sleep another hour.

• Often has a very short attention span: can’t sit to look at books with parent for more than a few minutes (When sleep loss is severe, appears overactive or “wired”).

• Seems irritable, difficult to please off and on during the day, especially between 4 and 6 p.m. (May hit, spit or bite during this time if significantly sleep deprived).

We perform studies for evaluation and assessment of:

  • Tracheotomy tube removal
  • Bi-PAP titrations
  • CPAP titrations
  • Oxygen titrations

Oxygen titration allows your child’s doctor to determine her blood oxygen saturation. This can tell a doctor if your child might have a condition like obstructive sleep apnea. The test is performed during a sleep study. A sleep specialist will use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to check and regulate the flow of oxygen during sleep. If levels are low, a child may need to use a CPAP machine at home.
