The Boys Town Sleep Disorders Center evaluates children ages 3 to 18, by conducting an overnight polysomnography to determine the course of treatment for conditions such as:
- Tonsillar hypertrophy
- Respiratory problems
- Parasomnias (sleep walking or talking)
- Sleep behavior issues
- Sleep apnea
- Head banging or body rocking
Sleep studies are conducted in a comfortable setting at the hospital. A parent must stay the night. A separate bedroom is offered for the parent and he or she may check on the child at any time through the night. If the parent wishes to stay in the same room with the child, comfortable sleeping arrangements are available.
To arrange for a sleep study for your patient, please contact the Boys Town Sleep Disorders Center at 402-778-6090, Monday – Friday between 12:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. For more information, contact Don Stednitz, Lead Sleep Technologist at 402-778-6895.
