My child is going for a Cardio-Respiratory Sleep Study

This video shows what happens when your baby or child needs to have a Cardio-Respiratory Sleep Study in hospital. Not knowing what is going to happen can make children and parents anxious. This video shows the sensors used to measure your child's heart, leg movements, snoring and breathing. Parents/carers can stay overnight with their child during the test. Parents could show this video to their child before their appointment. This video was developed in partnership with the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
