The power of teamwork
The Sleep Center team includes doctors who are board-certified sleep specialists, psychologists and nurse practitioners who specialize in treating children with sleep problems. Sometimes the skills of another specialist, like an ear, nose and throat doctor, are needed. Our team approach makes it easy, because these experts all are available in each of our convenient locations.
The Sleep Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and is the only one in Wisconsin dedicated to caring for children.
Most children first visit the Sleep Clinic for an evaluation that includes gathering the child's medical history and doing a physical exam. Sometimes only changes in a child's behavior or a family's bedtime activities are needed. Other times, children may need an overnight test in the Sleep Lab.
Some children will need to stay overnight in one of Children's state-of-the-art sleep labs for a sleep test. Throughout the night, a specially trained and registered sleep technologist will monitor your child's breathing, oxygen levels, heartbeat, brain activity, body movements and snoring. Sleep tests give doctors important information about your child's health. None of the tests are painful.
All children, even those with complex medical needs, can be monitored and safely cared for in the Sleep Lab. To help parents and children feel more comfortable, we offer space for one parent to stay overnight with the child during his or her sleep study.
