Pediatric Sleep Device Research Study
Join a Research Study: Enrolling locally from the Washington, D.C. metro region
How is Your Child’s Sleep? While your child sleeps, wearable devices can learn about their health. NIH researchers are developing a wearable device that measures oxygen levels in children with and without sleep apnea.
A common type of sleep apnea blocks the airway, causing breathing to stop momentarily. When this happens, oxygen levels in the blood decrease. Sleep apnea in children can be concerning and may include problems related to heart, lung, and learning and development.
Research study participation includes:
- Children ages 3 to 12 years
- With or without sleep apnea
- One study visit
- Physical exam
- Overnight sleep study with EEG (with the parent in the room)
The study is conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There is no cost to participate, and compensation is provided. Transportation may be provided.
