If you would like to order a sleep study to evaluate a patient for obstructive sleep apnea without evaluation in our clinic, please call 410-955-2035. To assure that the most appropriate study is done in the laboratory, we ask that children be seen in the sleep clinic at the Children’s Center prior to a sleep study if they:
- Are under the age of 1 year
- Have complex medical issues
- Have behavioral issues that may make a sleep study difficult
- Have a tracheotomy
- Are on oxygen, a ventilator, CPAP or BiPAP
Specialized sleep laboratory studies to evaluate children for nighttime seizure activity, gastroesophageal reflux and narcolepsy are also available. Prior evaluation in the sleep clinic is required for these studies.
