Diagnosis and treatment
After your child's initial assessment, we may need to carry out further tests. These can include:
- mean sleep latency testing
- respiratory polygraphy
- blood tests
- electroencephalogram (EEG)
- home video somnography.
Sleep laboratory studies
We have four sleep laboratory beds: two beds on the paediatric medical unit and a further two in the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility.
Our sleep laboratory tests include:
- polysomnography (including full EEG for children with epilepsy)
- mean sleep latency test
- mean wake test
- situational immobilisation test for restless legs syndrome SIT.
Where possible, we try to include children in our ongoing research programme and you may be invited to participate.
