Kids and Sleep

Posted on 12/7/2011

You know that a good night’s sleep is important to promoting proper concentration and energy levels—but did you know that not getting enough sleep may actually lead to certain health concerns?

In this video, the American Heart Association takes a closer look at how sleep deprivation affects children. Studies show that sleep-deprived children are at a greater risk for obesity, type II diabetes, and high blood pressure. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that preschoolers get between 11 and 13 hours of sleep a night, while elementary school children get between 10 and 12 hours. With adequate sleep, your child will be better prepared for the day and healthier in the future.

Find out if your child is at risk for diabetes or high blood pressure by visiting Sunrise Children's Hospital at (702) 731-5437.  Our pediatricians can advise you and your family in preventative measures to avoid future health issues.

Pediatric Oncology Department and Specialty Services

Cancer Survivor

Oncology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancerous tumors. While cancer is usually thought of as an adult disease, many infants and children also suffer from different types of cancers and debilitating diseases. Sunrise Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology and Special Services programs provide diagnosis and treatment for children with oncology, immune, and hematology disorders. In fact, our facility is the only dedicated pediatric oncology unit in the state of Nevada.

Our hospital is also a full member of the Children’s Oncology Group, or COG—a national organization devoted to the treatment of childhood cancers. After screening patients to identify their eligibility, we employ only the best therapeutic and research protocols to treat infants and children with oncology, hematology, and immune system disorders.  Some of the most common hematologic disorders include bone marrow failure syndromes, neutropenia, anemia, thrombocytosis, and blood clotting disorders, such as hemostasis. Immune system disorders include leukemia, diabetes, asthma, and more serious immunodeficiency diseases, such as HIV and AIDS.

We not only utilize the most advanced, high-tech solutions, but we also employ nurses who have passed and maintain the Oncology Nursing Studies (ONS) certification exam and the pediatric version. This ensures that our team of nurses can efficiently care for children that require chemotherapy treatments and other therapeutic modalities associated with pediatric cancer treatments.

Our pediatric physicians and specially trained nurses with the Pediatric Oncology Department and Specialty Services at Sunrise Children's Hospital are devoted to providing the best diagnostic and treatment options for your family’s needs. Learn about your child’s risk for certain immune disorders or cancers by visiting our website or by contacting us at (702) 731-5437 today.
