In this short textbook, the authors cover the range of pediatric sleep disorders including presenting symptoms, evaluation, and treatment. Additionally, an E-Book resource allows online access to a range of patient handouts pertinent to both normal sleep habits across the infant to adolescent age range in addition to specific pediatric sleep disorders.

Section on Pediatric Pulmonology, subcommittee on Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, AAP Pediatrics. http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/109/4/704.full?sid=93df74e5-83ff-42b5-9cf3-1c90fae277d7 and  http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/130/3/e714.full?sid=bd9574fb-4575-4d35-a46e-a63394e68331 

The American Academy of Pediatrics published both a clinical guideline and a supplemental technical report addressing the diagnosis and management of childhood obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.  The clinical guideline addresses screening, evaluation, and treatment of children and adolescents who are suspected of having sleep apnea and the technical report covers the pertinent research supporting the guidelines.  (MK 1)

The American Academy of Pediatrics published both a clinical guideline, supplemental technical report, and finally a review article addressing the practice of safe sleep practices for infants in addition to general information related to sudden infant death syndrome.  The clinical guideline addresses public education, anticipatory guidance for families and caregivers and ongoing focus for further research.

The AASM developed a learning module named SAFER (Sleep, Alertness, and Fatigue Education in Residency) to improve awareness and education of the medical community on the effects of sleep deprivation pertinent to job performance and health outcomes.  An article in JAMA in 2007 by Dr. Arora et al. evaluated this tool which noted that the educational component alone was not enough to fully address sleep deprivation in medical residents.  However, the tool itself continues to be  used in many medical institutions for the educational component in combination with ACGME oversight on work hours.

The review article summarizes the research examining the impact of sleep quality, sleep duration and sleepiness as separate domains on the impact of school performance of children and adolescents.  This information supports efforts toward education of patients, families and school communities on the importance of sleep due to the impact on attention and educational outcomes.

The review article summarizes the sleep wake disorders present in children and adolescents including obstructive sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, behavioral sleep disorders, and parasomnias.  Co morbidities that are frequently associated with sleep are also reviewed including ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
