What to Expect When Your Child Needs a Sleep Study
There are many reasons why your child’s doctor may order a sleep study. Often it is to find out if a child has difficulty breathing while sleeping. Knowing what to expect makes this an easier procedure for you and your child.
Every Story Matters
“In my third year of residency, I got pregnant with my daughter, Kate. My water broke at 28 weeks exactly. And that was supposed to be five days into my chief year. She held off for a week and then she spent 75 days in the NICU at Riverside. It taught me the importance of staying in the moment and not trying to think of her entire future at any given point. And since then, I think it has given me an entire new viewpoint as a pediatrician.”
“In the PICU, we see the sickest patients in the entire hospital that don’t have any heart disease or aren’t premature. My responsibility, especially being a third year fellow, is really to take ownership of the patient care and making sure the families understand where we are going. When you take care of really sick patients, you have to rely on everybody. We all work to intervene and make sure that a patient gets better.”
“I was born with the bleeding disorder hemophilia and have been involved with medicine as a patient ever since. In the fourth grade, I shadowed my hematologist and decided that I wanted to become a pediatric hematologist/oncologist. Hemophilia has shaped my life. I want to pay it forward to the next generation of children with bleeding disorders.”
