Pediatric Sleep Medicine 

Quality sleep is good for us all but is especially important for children who need good sleep for proper development and overall health. 

It is paramount to treat sleep problems early to help prevent other related health problems now and in adulthood. Key signs of sleep problems in children include disrupted sleep, snoring, behavioral issues, and excessive daytime sleepiness.  

USF Health’s Sleep Medicine experts include pediatric neurologists, pulmonologists, and behavioral specialists, who work in tandem to help diagnose and develop a comprehensive care plan for your child. 

Many of the common pediatric sleep disorders we treat include:
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (apnea related to a problem with a child's airway)
  • Central sleep apnea (apnea related to medical condition)
  • Narcolepsy and disorders causing sleepiness
  • Delayed sleep phase
  • Parasomnias (unusual behaviors during sleep)
  • Periodic limb movement disorder and restless legs syndrome
  • Sleep-related hypoventilation or hypoxemia
  • Behavioral sleep disorders
