Sleep and Children
MUSC Children’s Health board-certified pediatric sleep physician, Dr. Jacqueline Angeles, discusses sleep problems occurring in children.
We offer a comprehensive program that focuses on children’s sleep disorders from birth to 18 years of age. Typically, children are evaluated at an appointment with the sleep program and an overnight sleep study is ordered if necessary. We have two sleep laboratories: one at the downtown campus and one in North Charleston. Children with more complicated medical conditions will have a sleep study at the laboratory downtown, close to the Children’s Hospital. However, both locations have sleep technologists trained to handle complex pediatric issues.
Consultation is also available for children who had a sleep problem diagnosed by a sleep study but did not have a prior evaluation at the MUSC Children's Health sleep center.
