Sleep Week paediatric session

This two-hour session featured two leading international speakers and eight oral presentations from local researchers on cutting-edge paediatric sleep topics.

I sleep, therefore I learn: a lesson for the ephemera society is the talk title from Karen Spruyt, University of Lyon, France. One of the main tasks in childhood is learning. Another primary activity during childhood is sleeping. During sleep, the brain is switched into an activation state that is distinct from
wakefulness at both microscopic (e.g., spindles) and macroscopic (e.g., sleep duration) levels.Progressively more studies overall conclude that without proper sleep a child’s cognitive abilities suffer, but questions on how and to what extent, linger. In this talk, we provide a state of the art on the impact of sleep on cognition.

Children’s sleep in hospital – can we do better? is the focus for Catherine Hill, from University Hospital Southampton, UK. Hospital routines and ward sleep environments are rarely conducive to a good night’s sleep. Sleep debt affects co-sleeping parents as well as the inpatient child. This matters because
short, or broken sleep affects mood, emotional regulation, pain tolerance and immune function. In this talk we will review the international evidence on the impact of the hospital environment on sleep and consider approaches to promote healthy sleep alongside safe care.
