The Pediatric Sleep slide set package includes three stand-alone presentations that, taken together, provide a comprehensive guide to normal and abnormal sleep across the first 18 years of life.
Infant Sleep provides an introduction to the evaluation and scoring of sleep in infants. Changes in sleep amount and stage distribution; the development of circadian rhythms and napping and the cross-cultural perspective on cosleeping are covered. The second half of the presentation is devoted to sudden infant death syndrome; apparent life threatening events; and congenital central hypoventilation syndrome.
Child Sleep focuses on the pre-teen years. The presentation covers normal sleep in this age group as well as a series of sleep disorders: behavioral insomnia of childhood; sleep related breathing disorders in children, including a discussion of CPAP titration; parasomnias (sleep walking, night terrors and nightmares); restless legs syndrome; and enuresis.
Adolescent Sleep addresses the variety of issues that contribute to sleep deprivation in teenagers. Causes and treatments of insomnia in this age group are covered in detail as well as a discussion of delayed sleep phase syndrome. Teenage sleep related breathing disorders are also discussed.
