CHEO-Based Study Indicates a Lack of Resources for Child Sleep Disorders in Canada

Sleep disorders are common among children. Some of which, such as Sleep Disordered Breathing, are associated with more serious outcomes. The latest issue of Paediatrics and Child Health features a CHEO-based study featuring work from CHEO’s Dr. Sherri Katz and Dr. Nicholas Barrowman, as well as other medical professionals across the country. The study surveyed members of the Canadian Pediatric Society about the sleep testing available to children in Canada. The results of the study indicate a significant lack of resources for child sleep medicine in Canada, with notable variances across the provinces. The authors estimate that currently there are many times more children affected with sleep disorders than we are able to test in a year. For more details, see the full article: Pediatric Sleep Resources in Canada: The Scope of the Problem.
