Sleep Center Research

The Sleep Center at CHOP studies the full spectrum of sleep including behavioral interventions, clinical trials, epidemiology, and complex physiological studies. Our research goals are to:

  • Promote healthy sleep across the age spectrum
  • Optimize referrals of children with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) to tertiary care
  • Address health disparities in pediatric SDB
  • Establish best treatments for children with SDB
  • Determine medical and behavioral factors influencing adherence to positive airway pressure in a diverse population including individuals with Downs syndrome
  • Determine the feasibility and acceptability of home sleep apnea testing in children
  • Characterize sleep and SDB in infants
