Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire: Normalization and Validation Study

2014-08-27 03:49:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The information gathered from normal pediatric patients seen at the Pediatric Neurology Clinic in the DCAM and LaRabida Children's Hospital will be used to standardize and validate the information gathered from pediatric patients with sleep disorders. This will serve as the information source for a pediatric sleep database.

Description

A sleep questionnaire will be administered to patients who present to the Pediatric Neurology Clinic and LaRabida Children's Hospital. The questions asked are those routinely obtained in the clinical practice of sleep medicine. Medical students, residents and faculty as part of their normal clinical responsibilities will administer the questionnaire. The database will be maintained in Filemaker Pro program for future research purposes. Collection of the data will require approximately 15 minutes. A database file number not related to the patient medical record number will be assigned to each patient. The investigator will keep a separate log linking patient database number and patient medical record number. The logbook will be kept under lock and key by the investigator.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

Sleep disorders characterized by impaired arousal from the deeper stages of sleep (generally stage III or IV sleep).

A broad category of sleep disorders characterized by either hypersomnolence or insomnia. The three major subcategories include intrinsic (i.e., arising from within the body) (SLEEP DISORDERS, INTRINSIC), extrinsic (secondary to environmental conditions or various pathologic conditions), and disturbances of circadian rhythm. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
