We believe that a combination of incredible medical technology and a sensitive touch works wonders with babies. We know that families notice every single breath their baby takes —or doesn't take. So our team is vigilant when it comes to keeping babies safe and comfortable. With years of experience and training in both areas, we are well-equipped to help parents navigate treatment and monitoring once babies are home.
Choosing where to bring your child for care is a major decision. We understand you want all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.
When it comes to babies and breathing, Children's apnea program covers it all. Through both inpatient and outpatient care, we diagnose breathing conditions, coordinate further testing if needed and outline a plan of care tailored to each child. And we do this using sophisticated pulmonary technology that is specially created for tiny lungs and fragile little ones.
Moms and dads who check on their babies at 3 a.m. to make sure they are breathing is nothing new. Welcome to parenthood, where being cautious is the norm. But when babies have a condition called apnea, which is a pause in breathing that can last for more than 20 seconds, careful monitoring of a child becomes critically important.
We specialize in identifying and treating the full gamut of sleep challenges.
Insomnia is broadly defined as difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep and/or subjective, poor-quality sleep.
Dr. Cavanaugh and Karen Johnson, APRN, of the Children's Sleep Center in St. Paul talk about healthy sleep habits for kids from newborns to teens.
While it’s easy to perpetuate the cycle of being sleepy, it’s possible to make a conscious effort to improve this problem.
