Poor sleep affects a young person's physical growth, learning and academic potential, and mental health. Sleep tests are usually preceded by a clinical evaluation that may include a medical history, examination by a physician, and completion of a sleep questionnaire to help determine which tests are required.
The symptoms that children have from sleep disordered breathing include:
A full sleep study includes monitoring of brain wave activity, leg muscle activity, chin muscle tone, eye muscle movement, heart function, breathing patterns, and blood oxygen saturation. Monitoring involves taping small metal discs called electrodes onto the surface of the patient's skin. The testing does not break the skin and there is minimal discomfort.
All sleep consultations are covered by OHIP if a physician has referred to the Sleep Clinic.
Sleep studies done in an existing overnight lab are also covered by OHIP.
Our clinic also offers sleep studies at home that are NOT covered by OHIP.
