• At the conclusion of this course, attendees should
be able to…
• Understand normal sleep development and patterns in
• Understand common pediatric sleep disorders
• Understand important differences between children and
adults regarding conducting, scoring and interpreting
sleep studies
• Understand strategies to make a sleep study experience
child-friendly, and to optimize study quality
Development of Sleep
• Sleep and wake can first be determined in fetus
around 28 weeks gestation
• 32-36 weeks gestation
• Active (REM) and Quiet (non-REM) sleep can be distinguished
• Quite Sleep (non-REM) characterized first by trace alternant EEG
• Pattern persists until about 4 weeks after birth
• Develops into High Voltage Slow (HVS) activity “more mature” pattern of
Quiet Sleep in infants
Trace alternant EEG pattern
Alternating 3-8 second patterns of high amplitude slow waves
and low amplitude mixed frequency activity
Sleep in the child: normal and abnormal. AACP board review presentation, Lee Brooks MD
Infant Sleep Stages
• Sleep scored as Active (REM), Quite (NREM) or Indeterminate
• Scored based on multiple variables
Active (REM)
Quite (NREM)
Smiles, grimaces, limb movements
Rare movement
Low voltage, mixed frequency
Trace alternant; high voltage
slow waves
EMG tone
Eye Movements
Present, rapid
Grigg-Damberger M, Gozal D, Marcus CL, et al. The visual scoring of sleep and arousal in infants
and children. J Clin Sleep Med 2007; 3:201-40
Infant Sleep
• Spindles develop 2-3 months
• K-complexes and Slow Wave activity 4-6 months
• N1, N2, N3, REM can be scored once these EEG patterns
distinguished  “Pediatric” study rather than “infant”
• Nearly 50% of sleep is REM at birth
• Gradually decreases until age 3-4 when it stabilizes at 25% (same as adults)
• N3 sleep gradually decreases throughout lifetime
Changes to sleep architecture
• Higher density of N3 and fewer
awakenings likely account for
increased parasomnias in children
• Sleep Cycles
• 50-60 min at birth
• 75 min at 2 years
• 90 min at 6 years
Mindell and Owens. A Clinical Guide to Pediatric Sleep 2010
Normal Patterns
• Newborns (0-2 months)
Average 13-14.5 hours sleep, with wide variability
No established Circadian pattern
Sleep periods separated by 1-2 hours of wake
Breast fed babies sleep for shorter periods
• Infants (2-12 months)
• Circadian patterns start to form
• 9-10 hours at night plus 3-4 hours of naps = 12-13 hours overall
• By 1 year, number of naps decrease to 1-2/day
Normal Patterns
• Toddlers (1-3 years)
• Average 9.5-10.5 hours at night plus 2-3 hours in naps = 11-13 hours overall
• By 18 months down to 1 nap per day
• Nearly half stop napping by age 3
• Preschool (3-5 years)
• 9-10 hours of sleep at night
• Only 15% of 5 year olds still take a nap
Normal Patterns
• School age (6-12 years)
• Average 9-10 hours of sleep
• Adolescents (12-18 years)
9-9.25 hours recommended
But, average is only 7-7.5 hours at night
2-hour sleep debt accumulates per night across the school week
Most parents think their teens are getting enough sleep
Common Pediatric Sleep Disorders
• Insomnia
• Problems going to bed
• Night wakings
• Delayed sleep phase
• Obstructive sleep apnea
• Restless legs syndrome (Willis-Ekbom Disease) and Periodic limb
movement disorder
• Parasomnias
Behavioral Pediatric Insomnia: Night
Sleep onset association
• How we fall asleep is learned
• Physical parental presence can become part of the
• Normal awakenings occur multiple times a night
• Child doesn’t know how to fall back asleep without
his parents, so seeks them out by any means
• Multiple awakenings per night, waking parents each
Sleep Onset Association Disorder
•Treatment – Behavioral interventions
• Educate parents
• Replace physical parental presence with new sleep onset associations that
will be present when child wakes at night
• Parents leave room before child falls asleep
• If child cries, frequent checks and reassurance, but with increasing
• If child comes out of room, take right back and tuck back in without
unnecessary conversation, arguing, etc
• Child not allowed to sleep with parents
Behavioral Insomnia:
Problems going to bed
Limit Setting Sleep Disorder
• Child is physiologically able to fall asleep, but doesn’t stay in bed
long enough
• Refusals
• Stalling
• Repeated demands
• Create any reason (and many reasons) to stay up
• Parents intermittently or eventually give in, reinforcing behavior
• Child gains attention and special time from parents (even if arguing)
Limit Setting Sleep Disorder
• Comes out of room repeatedly because child can’t fall asleep because
Afraid of dark, monsters, being alone
Stomach hurts
Not tired, etc…
• Treatment: Behavioral Interventions
• Set clear, 100% predictable, 100% consistent limits
• Bed time is strictly enforced, following an enforced wind down period
beginning predictably 1-2 hours before bed
• Do not give in to protests or requests after bed time
• Decide who is going to win
Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome
• Sleep physiology is completely normal, but timing of sleep cycle is
misaligned with school/daytime responsibilities
• Not ready or able to fall asleep early at night
• Body not ready to wake up for school
• most sleepy during first part of the day
• Total sleep becomes inadequate, causing cumulative sleep
deprivation; trying to catch up on weekends
• If allowed to get enough total sleep, feels normal
• Runs in families
• Develops in adolescence
• most adolescents will have at least a mild shift in circadian rhythm
Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome
• Treatment
• Education
• Properly timed melatonin in the evenings
• Bright light exposure in the mornings
• Consistent schedule 7 days a week
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
• Epidemiology
• 8% children snore frequently, according to parents
• “Always” snoring 1.5-6%
• 1-4% school age children have OSA based on PSG
• Peak age 2-8 years
• Corresponds to the peak of lymphoid hyperplasia, and
adenotonsillar hypertrophy
• Boys and girls equal until adolescence, when boys
outnumber girls (similar to adult patterns)
• More frequent in African-American and Asian children
OSA Risk Factors
• Enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids
• Allergies
• Facial abnormalities
• Small chin
• Narrow hard palate
• Cleft palate repair
• Down syndrome
• Obesity
• Neuro-Muscular disorders
OSA – Night Symptoms
• Snoring most common complaint
• With or without snorting, choking, gasping, or
witnessed pauses in breathing
• Restless sleep (tossing and turning)
• Sleeping in strange positions (extending neck to
open airway)
• Sweats
• Bed wetting
OSA – Daytime Symptoms
• Daytime sleepiness not present in most kids (less than 10%)
• Behavioral problems
• Inattention
• Hyperactivity
• Irritability
• Decreased school performance
• Morning headaches
OSA – Medical Consequences
• Hypertension
• Pulmonary hypertension
• Failure to thrive (slow growth)
• Heart failure
Diagnosis of OSA
• Clinical history cannot predict presence or absence of
childhood OSA
• Severe OSA can be present even with soft snoring and
minimal symptoms
• Physical examination is often normal
• Degree of tonsillar hypertrophy does not correlate with
presence of OSA
• Parental perception varies widely
• Sleep study is needed
OSA Treatments
• Adenotonsillectomy – Recommended 1st line treatment
by American Academy of Pediatrics
• Large study* in 2010 demonstrated complete resolution of
OSA in only 27% of kids, though most were improved
• High AHI, older age, obesity and asthma predict failure
• Rapid maxillary expansion (orthodontic)
• Medical management of allergies and GERD
• Craniofacial surgery
• Tracheostomy

Apnea in Children. Am J Crit Care Med 2010; 182: 676-683
Central Sleep Apnea
• Usually periodic breathing
• Can be a sign of structural brain abnormalities
• Arnold Chiari malformation
• If significant, MRI brain is recommended
• Treatment protocols for central apnea are not defined
• Treat OSA if present (start with T&A)
• Neurosurgical consultation for Chiari malformation
• Oxygen

Restless Legs and PLMs
Restless Legs and Periodic Limb Movements
• Restless legs syndrome
• Clinical diagnosis
• Uncomfortable sensations in the legs accompanied by urge to move
• Often described as “growing pains”
• Worse at night or when inactive (car rides)
• Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
• Identified PLMs on polysomnography
• Brief (0.5-10 seconds) repetitive limb movements, not in association
with OSA
• For children, >5 per hour required
• AND associated with sleep or daytime symptoms
Periodic Limb Movements
• 70-90% of adults with RLS also have PLMs (not studied in kids)
• Share underlying abnormalities in the brain’s dopamine system
• Thought to be under-recognized generally
Pediatric RLS
• Present in 1-6% of kids
• Equal rates in boys and girls (unlike adults)
• Possibly life long and severe
• Risk factors
Family history
Sleep deprivation or poor sleep hygiene
Iron deficiency (ferritin < 50 ng/ml)
• Present in 75% of kids with RLS
Pediatric PLMs
• Same link with iron deficiency and antidepressants
• 50% of kids with PLMs also have OSA on sleep study
• Treatment of OSA resolves the PLMs in 50% of these kids
Treatments for RLS/PLMD
• Replace iron if ferritin is low
• Stop or reduce antidepressants
• Avoid caffeine
• Good sleep hygiene
• Treat OSA if present
• Exercise, stretching, massage
• Medications only approved for adults
• Episodic disorders in sleep
• Not resulting in complaint of excessive sleepiness or insomnia
• Arousal disorders
• REM related disorders
• Sleep-wake transition disorders
Arousal Disorders
• “Partial” arousal from deep non-REM sleep
• Occurs typically first third of the night
• Difficult to wake up
• No recall of event
• Worsened by
• Sleep deprivation
• Sleep fragmentation (sleep apnea, caffeine)
• Psychological factors – Anxiety, stress, change
Arousal Disorders
• Somnambulism
40% of kids at least once
5% frequently
Outgrown usually by age 15
• Sleep Terrors
Abrupt onset
Blood curdling scream or cry
Confusion, agitation, tachycardia
Not associated with dream
• Confusional arousals
Arousal Disorders
• Treatment
• Reassurance
• Insure safety!!
• Locks, door alarms, gates
• Good sleep hygiene
• Minimize triggers (sleep apnea)
• Medications (benzodiazepines)
REM Associated Disorders
• Nightmares
• Last 3rd of night
• Remembers dream, able to fully awaken
• REM Behavioral Disorder
• Sleep paralysis
Sleep-Wake Transition Disorders
• Rhythmic Movement Disorders
• Head banging, Body rocking as way to self-sooth and transition to sleep
• 2/3 of normal children
• Usually ends by age 4
• Hypnic Jerks
• Occurs with transition to N1
• 60-70% or normal people
• Somniloquy – very common
Pediatric Polysomnography
• Must be ‘child oriented.’ Ergonomically pediatric.
• Techs must be experienced, motivated to work with children, and
very patient!
• Can be performed on any child of any age
• Most children tolerate it well
• Parent must accompany child for entire evening
• Interpretation and scoring different from adult criteria
• Children have shorter and fewer events, and higher proportion of
partial obstructions: scoring requires great care
Getting better studies
• Parents are the experts for their child; use them
• Try to adapt to family routines
• Explain everything to parents to keep them involved
• Environment should resemble a child’s room
• Quiet, appropriate room temperature
• Age appropriate toys, pictures, books
• Parental accommodations should be comfortable
• Room child-proofed
• Quality of study directly dependent on the skill of the technologist
• Preferably experienced and enjoys working with kids
• Set up should be fun
• Distraction
• Adequate staffing – liberal use of 1:1 especially for set up
• Document everything!
PSG Interpretation
• Adult criteria do not apply to children
• 80% of kids with clinically significant OSA would be missed
• Cutoffs continue to be debated, but abnormal if…
• AHI>1 (HDVCH uses AHI 1.5 or OAI of 1.0)
• EtCO2 > 45 mmHg for >60% of TST (some researchers suggest this cutoff
should be as low as 10%)
• Pediatric respiratory scoring rules may be used until age 18
• Adult respiratory scoring rules may be used starting at age 13
Pediatric PSG Scoring
• Sleep Stages
• Wakefulness defined by “dominant posterior rhythm”
• gradually increasing in frequency with age until full “alpha rhythm” of 8 Hz first seen at
ages 1-3
• Stages N1, N2, N3, and REM similar rules as adults, can be scored as soon as
K-complexes and Spindles seen (2-6 months)
• N (NREM), REM, and Indeterminate scored if <6 months, and no N2
• Cardiac Events – Heart rates 2 Standard Deviations from the mean,
based on age normative values
Respiratory Monitoring
• Apneas detected by thermal sensor
• Alternate (if not reliable) nasal pressure transducer
• Hypopneas detected by nasal pressure transducer
• Alternate oronasal thermal sensor
• Alveolar hypoventilation detected by either transcutaneous (Tc) or
end-tidal (ET) PCO2
• Crucial to obtain a plateau in the EtCO2 waveform for the signal to be
considered valid
• Transcutaneous PCO2 not always reliable
• Et PCO2 will yield inaccurately low values if
Nasal obstruction
Nasal secretions
Obligate mouth breathers

Periodic Breathing
• Pediatric sleep and sleep disorders can appear very
different from adult patients
• Pediatric sleep studies present special challenges to
perform and interpret
• Treatment of pediatric sleep disorders can
sometimes require more trial and error, and an
appreciation for the child as a member of a family
