Consultation and Sleep Testing

 

Early identification is essential. The Valley Pediatric Sleep Disorders and Apnea Center is committed to accurately diagnosing and treating sleep disorders, which have long-term implications.  

First Consultation

Sleepiness in children is not normal. During your initial consultation, we uncover what might be affecting each child’s ability to attain healthy sleep patterns. At our initial meeting at the Kireker Center for Child Development on Goffle Road (office and lab have separate locations), our board-certified healthcare provider will meet with you and your child to obtain a complete medical and sleep history and perform a physical exam. We will discuss:

  • Behavioral problems and patterns
  • Sleeping problems and patterns
  • Developmental issues
  • Procedures and instructions for sleep testing

At the conclusion of our meeting, your infant or child may be recommended for an overnight testing at our sleep laboratory. 

Some infants may be recommended for an infant home apnea monitor.  Please click here to learn more.

Valley’s Sleep Laboratory, located at 579 Franklin Turnpike in Ridgewood, uses the latest technology and a fully computerized laboratory to accurately monitor a child’s sleeping patterns. This permits a proper diagnosis and appropriate choices for treatment.


You may have questions about your child scheduled sleep testing. Answers to common questions about parenting for sleep testing are answered in this section. If you have any additional questions, please call us at
201-447-8152.

Directions to the Sleep Laboratory are listed here.

 

About the Laboratory

The Valley Sleep Laboratory is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.  All physicians are board certified sleep specialists.  All sleep technicians are uniquely trained and experienced with the pediatric population.  This laboratory has six beautifully appointed private rooms with private bath, sleep number beds for the parent and child, Wi-Fi, cable and DVD players.  A continental breakfast is provided, and all efforts are made to make the patient’s experience as comfortable and home-like as possible.

 

Preparing for the Overnight Sleep Test

Prior to sleep testing, we will contact your healthcare insurance company to notify them that your child is scheduled for sleep testing. If your insurance company requires precertification or authorization for outpatient diagnostic procedures, we will attain this authorization. Please keep in mind that authorization or precertification is not a guarantee of payment, and you're responsible for any deductible and co-insurance per your benefit plan. You should be aware of the benefits and eligibility requirements prior to testing.

You will be contacted prior your scheduled testing date to confirm your child’s appointment. Please advise us at that time if there are any recent changes in your child’s health (upper respiratory infections, flu like symptoms) that may necessitate rescheduling. If you find it necessary to cancel your appointment, please call 201-251-3487.

 How will we receive the results?

Please refrain from requesting preliminary results from the technician. Your healthcare provider will review the results and discuss any next steps that may be required. Results will be communicated to you both verbally and in writing as arranged by your healthcare provider. A copy of the sleep testing report will be sent to your pediatrician and other subspecialist as requested.
