Treatment for Sleep Disorders

Your child’s sleep problem may be solved by lifestyle changes such as establishing a bedtime routine, or may require medical intervention. Often, sleep problems are a symptom of another condition. In that case, the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children pediatric sleep experts will help your child receive the proper treatment in order to improve sleep and return your child to good health.

If necessary, a sleep treatment such as a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is available. The CPAP machine delivers air into a mask that is placed over your child’s nose. This pressure keeps the airway open. This treats a common, but serious, sleep disorder known as childhood sleep apnea.
