Advanced sleep technology catered to children
Pediatric sleep specialists utilize advanced technology to evaluate and treat sleep disorders. Patients are assessed by a board-certified sleep specialist who arranges further tests to determine the cause of the sleep problem.
Patients may have a sleep study either in the laboratory or at home. Using techniques such as actigraphy (used to evaluate sleep patterns) and polysomnograms (sleep studies), children are cared for in a clean, family-friendly environment. The Baylor Scott & White Sleep Institute is one of the first facilities in the country to utilize new sleep technology to evaluate the relationship between sleep disorders and enuresis (bedwetting).
For the unique nature of the sleep issues, McLane Children's has one of the few pediatric neurologists in Central Texas specializing in childhood sleep issues, Patricia Ritch, MD, PhD, and five board-certified sleep doctors.
