What to Expect for Children

Every child will have a consultation with the Doctor before proceeding with a sleep study. The Doctor will review all relevant medical history along with examination of the child before a sleep study is performed. We have a room specially designed so that a parent can stay in the same room for the sleep study in order to make the child more comfortable.

What to Bring to the Sleep Study

  • Bring your child’s health card.
  • Bring a list of any medications your child is taking, with dosages.
  • Bring two-piece nightwear and slippers. A pillow and blanket will be provided for your child but you are welcome to bring their own.
  • You are welcome to bring anything to make your child more comfortable (a favorite teddy bear, hand held gaming device).

How to Prepare Your Child for Their Sleep Study

  • The child can’t nap during the day
  • No caffeine after 3pm on day of the test (such as chocolate or pop)
  • They can have a normal dinner
