Pediatric Sleep Specialists

People often do not realize that small children — as well as pre-teens and adolescents — can suffer from child sleep problems. Their issues may range from sleep apnea to night terrors. Northshore Sleep Medicine accepts patients 2-years-old and older.

Common Symptoms

  • excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS)
  • disturbed, fragmented sleep
  • sleep walking
  • sleep talking
  • confusional arousals
  • sleep enuresis (bedwetting)
  • snoring or heavy, labored breathing
  • difficulty concentrating, paying attention and remembering
  • and many more

See our article on Sleep Disorders in Children for details about the types of problems kids may be experiencing.

Treatment Options

At Northshore Sleep Medicine, we specialize in diagnosing sleep problems in children and adolescents. After a pediatric sleep study, options for treatment may include recommendations such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine which patients use at home.

Call our office at 847-674-3600 to set up an appointment for your child. See FAQ on Sleep Studies for Children for more information about that process.
