Pediatric Sleep Disorders
Children can suffer from sleep disorders, too. An estimated 25-30 percent of infants and children experience sleep disturbances. Lack of quality sleep can have a negative effect on a child’s ability to concentrate in school, participate in activities or develop healthy social relationships. Sleep disorders in children may also lead to serious cardiovascular, metabolic and developmental effects.
Common Sleep Disorders in Children
- Sleep apnea
- Restless legs syndrome
- Nightmares & night terrors
Fortunately, most sleep disorders are very treatable. Vista has Board-Certified Sleep Medicine physicians and skilled sleep technologists who specialize in care for pediatric patients as young as two years old.
If you suspect your child may have a sleep disorder talk to their doctor to see if a referral to our sleep specialist is needed.
