Biography

Mark Splaingard, MD, is the Director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He is board-certified in pediatrics, pediatric pulmonology, physical medicine and rehabilitation and sleep medicine. Dr. Splaingard’s research has concentrated on the outcomes of children with chronic pulmonary and acquired neurological disorders with a recent focus on sleep disorders in children. In 2006, his research projects included studies on a modified smoke alarm to awaken children during slow wave sleep, sleep disorders in children with autism, childhood bipolar disorder, children with obesity and the pathophysiology of aerodigestive reflexes in sleeping infants. In 2006, Dr. Splaingard gave lectures on pediatric sleep medicine to sleep physicians, pediatric residents, pediatric pulmonologists, neonatologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, community pediatricians, nurse practitioners, otolaryngology residents and graduate students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
