What is a sleep disorder?
A sleep disorder is a condition that negatively affects sleeping patterns. If left untreated, some sleep disorders may lead to other health conditions.

- Problems falling asleep
- Trouble staying asleep
- Waking up in the morning feeling tired

Pediatric sleep disorders
We understand it can be difficult to know your child isn't sleeping well. That is why our experts are here to help them get the rest they need.
To do this, our board-certified sleep specialist and knowledgeable staff offer high-quality care to evaluate, diagnose and treat children, from 6 years old to 18 years old, who struggle with sleep problems. Additionally, we work closely with your child's primary care provider to ensure they receive the best possible care.
Pediatric sleep conditions we treat
Our specialists are experienced in treating many sleep disorders in children, such as:
- Restless sleep
- Sleep apnea
When a child has sleep apnea, they will likely experience breathing that repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea may lead to other health conditions.
Symptoms of sleep apnea
Sleep apnea can cause children to experience symptoms such as:
- Difficultly breathing during sleep
- Loud snoring
- Stopped breathing during sleep
Children may also experience symptoms the next day, including:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Persistent yawning
These symptoms usually arise due to interrupted sleep.
Treating sleep apnea in children
Children who test positive for sleep apnea often have enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which can block airflow. One option for treatment is undergoing a tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy—the surgical removal of the tonsils and/or adenoids.
Another common treatment is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). This treatment requires that your child wear a mask while sleeping. The CPAP machine delivers constant pressurized air through the mask and into your child’s airway, which prevents sleep apnea.
CPAP is usually used for children where sleep apnea is not improved after a tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy or for children who are not candidates for such surgical procedures.
Diagnosing a sleep disorder
If you are suspected of having a sleep disorder, your doctor may recommend an overnight sleep study. During a sleep study, registered technologists and respiratory therapists use state-of-the-art equipment to monitor your sleep.
They also monitor and record your:
- Brain wave activity
- Muscle activity
- Heart rate and rhythms
- Oxygen levels
This information can help your doctor determine the cause and severity of your sleep condition.
The home-like atmosphere at Lone Peak Hospital's Sleep Center is designed to help patients feel as comfortable as possible during a sleep study. Our private patient rooms include smart TVs that have the ability to play white noise sounds. You are welcome to bring a small music device as well.
Sleep disorder treatment
Our team will personalize a treatment plan to your unique condition after confirming your diagnosis. One treatment we offer is a home sleep system called sleep targeted apnea results (STAR). Many patients report experiencing increased energy and vitality, weight loss and improved overall well-being following treatment.
