Pediatric Home Sleep Studies

Dr. Shinhar is the only Pediatric ENT in New York to offer home sleep studies using the NOX-T3 Portable Sleep Monitor

Home Sleep TestingDoes your child snore or show other signs of disturbed sleep? Long pauses in breathing, much tossing and turning in the bed, chronic mouth breathing during sleep, night sweats (owing to increased effort to breathe) are possible signs of sleep apnea, which is more common among children than is generally recognized. It’s estimated than 1 to 4 percent of children suffer from pediatric sleep apnea, many of them being between 2 and 8 years old.

Dr. Shinhar is the only Pediatric ENT to provide home sleep studies for his patients showing signs of sleep apnea using the NOX-T3 portable sleep monitor; the gold standard of portable sleep monitors for children.  Dr. Shinhar’s Pediatric Home Sleep Study will yield next day results providing convenience, as well as accuracy.

Why does Dr. Shinhar choose to use the NOX-T3 Portable Sleep Monitor?
