• Care for Children with Sleep Problems

    The Sleep Center at Cincinnati Children’s provides multidisciplinary assessment and management to help children with sleep problems get the sleep they need to stay healthy.

    Sleep studies are often performed to observe a child’s sleep in a sleep laboratory.  This helps team members at the Sleep Center better understand problems that could be causing a child’s sleep disorder. Children suspected of having sleep-disordered breathing are typically referred to the pediatric Sleep Laboratory, where sleep patterns are studied in depth.

    The Sleep Center, which is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, offers multiple services, including:
