My child is going for a Polysomnography Sleep Study

Having to stay overnight in hospital for a Sleep Study can make parents and children anxious. This video by the What? Why? Children in Hospital charity shows you what happens when your baby or child needs to have a Polysomnography Sleep Study. It shows the sensors used to check your child's breathing, muscle movements, heart and brain activity. Parents can show this video to their child (depending on their age and ability) to help them prepare for their test in hospital.
