The region's only pediatric pulmonologist board-certified in both pediatric pulmonology and pediatric sleep medicine oversees the pediatric sleep clinic at Lutheran Children's Hospital.

Dozens of sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea and other sleep problems sometimes misidentified as attention deficit disorder or ADD, can be diagnosed and treated at the clinic, which provides studies for pediatric and neonatal patients. What may appear to be a behavioral issue can sometimes be corrected with adequate rest. Children with certain syndromes and various craniofacial abnormalities are more prone to sleep apnea.

Symptoms of pediatric sleep disorders include:

  • Abnormal sleep schedules
  • Cyanotic episodes (child turns blue)
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Frequent nightmares or terrors
  • Growth failure or difficulty swallowing.
  • Narcolepsy (falls asleep during the day)
  • Sleep apnea (child stops breathing for a period of time)
  • Sleep walking
