Inadequate sleep hygiene Medication side-effects Periodic limb movement disorder Idiopathic hypersomnia endocrine/metabolic problems Narcolepsy OSA Narcolepsy Narcolepsy Excessive daytime sleepiness Sleep paralysis Hypnagogic hallucinations Cataplexy Sudden loss of tone Precipitated by emotion (laughing, anger) REM creep Dx polysomnography, MSLT Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Excessive daytime sleepiness Symptoms Snoring, with apneic pauses But also Daytime nasal obstruction Mouth breathing Trouble eating/meat refusal Behavior problems Bed-wetting Restless sleep Sweaty sleep (needs fan on) AM headache Poor seizure control Who has OSA 2-3 % of normal

development children have OSA 10% of normal children will be habitual snorers don't have OSA 50% of children with Down's ~50% in obese children Why is it bad Hypertension, CHF, stroke, diabetes, difficulty losing weight. Parasomnias Disorders of Non-REM arousal Sleep walking Sleep terrors Confusional arousals REM sleep disorders Nightmares

Sleep paralysis REM sleep behavior disorder Narcolepsy SSRI neurodevelopmental Sleep-related movement disorders Rhythmic movement infants/toddlers Start at sleep onset Head rolling/head banging/ body rocking Bruxism RLS/PLMD Hypnic starts Brief jerks occurring with falling asleep/awakening May have sensation of falling
