Paediatric Sleep Disorders Clinic
The Paediatric Sleep Disorders Clinic is under the Division of Respiratory Medicine. The clinic is dedicated to providing comprehensive evaluation and treatment for a wide range of sleep disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea, nocturnal hypoventilation in neuromuscular and genetic diseases, children in respiratory failure and sleep related behavioral problems in neuro-developmental disorders.
The Sleep Disorders Clinic is scheduled for every Wednesday afternoon; once per month this clinic is multi-disciplinary. It involves a respirologist, psychiatrist, neurologist, and paediatrician who have a special interest in sleep medicine.
The majority of our patients will be evaluated in Sleep Disorders Clinic to determine what the specific problems are. A decision to undertake a polysomnogram (sleep study) is made at this time and this will subsequently be performed at a later date in the sleep laboratory at SickKids. Many of the children will also be reviewed after the sleep study to discuss the results of the study.
