Pediatric Sleep Medicine

Sleep Lab

Kids need good quality sleep to keep up with the demands of learning and play. Poor quality sleep and sleep disruptions can cause children to have difficulty staying awake, focusing, learning and controlling their emotions.

Through comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, our WakeMed Pediatric Sleep Medicine team collaborates to help parents figure out the reasons behind the most puzzling sleep disorders, so children can receive the care they need and get back to sleep.

We treat these common conditions:

  • Bedwetting
  • Excessive sleepiness 
  • Insomnia (difficulty falling and staying asleep)
  • Narcolepsy (daytime drowsiness)
  • Nighttime sleep behaviors (sleepwalking, night terrors)
  • Poor sleep habits that require lifestyle and/or behavioral changes
  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnea

Diagnostic offerings for pediatric patients:
