Care for pediatric sleep disorders in Pasadena
Healthy sleep in children can lead to healthy brain function and emotional well-being. Your child's physical health, daytime performance and safety all rely on healthy amounts of regular sleep. Although every child may have trouble sleeping now and then, a consistent lack of adequate sleep – or any sleep disorders – can negatively impact growth, development and cognitive abilities. Regular sleep is vital to a child's health, happiness, social life and success in school. And regular disruptions in your child's sleep pattern may disturb your child's quality of life.
Irregular and inadequate sleep can cause sleep disorders and symptoms such as:
- Trouble falling asleep
- Trouble staying asleep
- Sleep terrors
- Sudden behavior problems
- Teeth grinding during sleep
During a thorough sleep evaluation, our technician will monitor your child's sleeping and waking patterns, breathing patterns, body and limb movements (EMG test) and brain waves (EEG test). This information is interpreted by our board-certified pediatric neurologist. Treating pediatric sleep disorders depends largely on the type of sleep problem your child is experiencing.
