There are two types of pediatric sleep disorders: respiratory sleep disorders (for example: sleep apnea, etc.) and non-respiratory sleep disorders (for example: disorders of initiating sleep, somnambulism, etc.). Assessments of these disorders are conducted by an interdisciplinary team that is currently made up of a clinical nurse, specialized medical doctors and a psychologist. Based on their signs, diagnostic tests are conducted by a respiratory therapist at the sleep laboratory.
Treatments may include changing sleep habits, medication, non-invasive ventilation devices, or other.
