Our fellows spend significant time learning pediatric sleep medicine at our newly expanded and renovated Pediatric Sleep Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. This sleep center is also accredited by the AASM and has a 10-bed sleep lab available for overnight sleep studies, as well as an active inpatient sleep service. The sleep center performs over 2,400 sleep studies annually. Faculty is multidisciplinary representing Pediatric Neurology, Pediatric Pulmonology, Pediatric Otolaryngology, and Pediatric Psychology.
Inpatient Sleep Service at Barnes-Jewish Hospital
Our fellows also rotate at Barnes-Jewish Hospital where they perform sleep medicine inpatient consults and interpret inpatient sleep studies performed several times a week on hospitalized patients. This very active and unique inpatient service allows our fellows to work with other specialties in the inpatient setting, to evaluate sleep problems related to underlying conditions such as heart failure, stroke, neuromuscular disease, and COPD.
