Sleep studies for children
There are two main types of sleep studies we use at Children's Mercy. One option is to visit the Sleep Lab for an overnight or daytime sleep study. The other option is to keep track of sleep habits at home using a sleep diary or actigraphy device (a watch that continually detects ambient light and motion during sleep and awake times).
In some cases, your primary care or other provider may refer you directly to the Sleep Lab for a sleep study.
