Banner Desert Sleep Center
The Banner Desert Sleep Center accurately diagnoses children's sleeping problems to provide a better night's sleep for child and caregiver.
We have registered sleep technologists and physicians board-certified in sleep medicine. Consultants certified in pulmonary diseases, neurology and psychology can also help with diagnosis and treatment.

Our fully accredited Sleep Center helps physicians recognize sleep disturbances including breathing, narcolepsy, insomnia, snoring, parasomnias and circadian rhythm disorders.
We also can help diagnose and treat sleep-related disorders, including sleep apnea, excessive sleepiness, movement disorders, insomnia and other sleep/wake schedule problems.
What to expect
Children are usually referred to the sleep disorders center by their primary care physician. Once an evaluation is scheduled, the family will receive a letter confirming the test date, explaining preparations and the test itself, and other special instructions.
We have a special child-friendly room with a soothing atmosphere. Our pediatric rooms can accommodate an overnight stay with a caregiver for children as young as newborn age.
All sleep testing is performed as close to the child’s normal sleep time as possible. Research shows tests performed during the daytime do not produce the same results as night-time testing because the child’s sleep pattern and depth are not adequate during these hours.
Our experienced staff can determine therapy needs while the child is in the sleep center. Children exhibiting moderate to severe sleep apnea symptoms can be treated the same night of the diagnostic study.
