Sleep Studies at Children’s

One of the ways the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Sleep Center helps your child is by conducting a sleep study (also called a polysomnogram). A sleep study is a test that looks at what happens to your child’s body when he is sleeping. The study monitors your child’s:

  • Brain waves
  • Breathing
  • Heart rate
  • Body movements

Sleep studies at Children’s:

  • are painless—no needles are used.
  • are done at night in a private room with a parent present.
  • are covered by most insurance companies.

Your child's doctor will use the test results to diagnose any sleep or breathing disorder that is evident.
