Sleep Center

Palmetto Health Children's Hospital Sleep Center is directed by Trey Brown, MD, central South Carolina's only physician with subspecialty training in both pediatric pulmonology and pediatric sleep medicine.

Children's sleep disorders include:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Insomnia with sleep apnea
  • Primary sleep apnea of newborn
  • Snoring
  • Narcolepsy
  • Periodic leg movement
  • Hypersomnia

According to Dr. Brown, It is extremely important to diagnose and treat these problems because they can result in cognitive impairment, behavioral problems and pulmonary hypertension," says Dr. Brown. "Symptoms such as snoring, daytime sleepiness, falling asleep in school, gasping or having pauses in the breathing pattern, and enlarged tonsils should prompt a sleep study.

The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that all children with Down syndrome have a sleep study by the age of four.

Medical conditions which may require a sleep study include:

  • ADHD
  • Asthma
  • Cardiac disease
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Down syndrome
  • GERD
  • Hypertension
  • Hypertrophy of tonsils
  • Obesity
  • Pulmonary artery hypertension
  • Seizure disorder
  • Sickle Cell Anemia

Trach-dependent children, special needs children and children with neuromuscular syndromes also may require a sleep study.

The following studies can be conducted at the Sleep Center:

  • Diagnostic Polysomnogram
  • Split Night Polysomnogram
  • CPAP/Bi-Level Titration
  • PSG with Multiple Sleep Latency Test

The Children's Sleep Center provides sleep studies Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
