There are 84 different sleep disorders

Many can be treated to ensure a better quality of sleep. Some sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, can result in heart disease or stroke, if left untreated. “In patients with sleep apnea, the risk of stroke and cardiovascular diseases increases by 200% - 400%” says our leading sleep specialist and Pulmonologist Dr. Yahya M. Dikengil.

Our Mission

Provide a “continuum of care” for sleep disordered patients through the delivery of integrated diagnostic and treatment services. Our center for sleep medicine employs the latest diagnostic testing equipment to properly diagnose and treat sleep disorders. Also, we feature a panel of boardcertif ied sleep medicine physician specialists and experienced sleep technicians who monitor and assess patients for any sleep disorders such as periodic limb movement, obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, snoring, narcolepsy and REM (rapid eye movement) behavior disorders.

Apnea in Children

The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) 2004 Sleep in America survey found that nearly 70 percent of children experience one or more sleeping problems at least a few nights a week. The most common sleep problems reported include: difficulty falling asleep, night waking, snoring, stalling (resist going to bed), trouble breathing and lots of heavy breathing while sleeping.

How Much Sleep Should Your Child Be Getting?

  1. INFANTS 14 – 15 HOURS
  2. TODDLERS 12 – 14 HOURS
  3. PRE-SCHOOLERS 11 – 13 HOURS
  4. SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN 10 – 11 HOURS

Hudson Regional Hospital Center for Sleep Medicine is the Systematic Approach for Testing and Treating Sleep Disorders.

We are committed to accurately diagnosing and treating sleep disorders, which have long-term implications. Our physicians, polysomnographic technicians, and respiratory therapists are exclusively pediatric trained and focused, assuring the highest level of care for your child. At an initial meeting at our Center, our boardcertified physician will meet with you and your child to perform a physical evaluation and gain a thorough understanding of your child’s medical history and sleep patterns.

Parental advice on ensuring your child gets a good night sleep

  • Intake of caffeinated drinks should be avoided during the afternoon or evening.
  • Creating a sleep-promoting environment that is cool, quiet and dark.
  • Enforce a regular bedtime, that helps kids wind down before going to bed.
  • Limiting or eliminating the use of computers or telephones in children’s bedrooms.
