Pediatrics, child care and sleep

In the first years of life, good sleep quality is essential for physical, intellectual and behavioral development. However, one third of children suffer from a sleep problem or disorder that then leads to diseases such as childhood obesity and hyperactivity. In addition, children’s vulnerability means that the risks associated with sleep may encompass chemical, physical, mechanical, ergonomic and biological risks.

This line generates knowledge and development opportunities related to risk reduction, such as sudden infant death syndrome, childhood insomnia or apnea-hypopnea.
