Sleep Disorders: research

The Sleep Disorder Unit at SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital is involved in studies in collaboration with other hospitals and university centres and prepares guides for the management of these problems. Our main activity and fields of interest are as follows:

  • Multicentre study groups analising the simplified detection of sleep apnea (OSA) in children through the use of pulse oximetry (in collaboration with the University of Chicago). 
  • International multicentre study on restless legs syndrome.
  • Preparation and review of clinical practice guides for proper sleep. Unit recognised by the Spanish Sleep Society (SES).
