Notes:
 
Slide 1: Sleepwalking And Children The sleep problem of sleepwalking, also referred to as somnambulism, affects roughly 14% of schoolage youngsters between 5 and twelve years old at the very least once. Roughly one quarter of the kids with this sleep disorder have more frequent episodes. Sleepwalking is more common in boys then it is in girls. Most youngsters that sleepwalk outgrow the symptoms of this sleep disorder by adolescence as their nervous systems develop. In children this sleep disorder is considered the results of the immaturity of the brain's sleep / wake cycle. Normally the entire brain wakes up at the same time. Nonetheless, in the case of a sleepwalker, the entire brain doesn't wake up together. The portion that's responsible for mobility wakes up whereas the portion responsible for cognition and awareness stays asleep. The child is definitely in a deep state of sleep. With this sleep disorder the brain stays partially asleep however the body is ready to move. It's common for the sleepwalker to get off the bed and walk around. Sometimes they get dressed or go outside. Even though the sleepwalker's eyes are open and they see what they are doing, their expression stays blank. They don't respond to conversation or their name being called. A sleepwalker's movements usually appear clumsy. It's not uncommon for them to trip over furniture or knock over things as they move around. A sleepwalking episode often happens one to two hours after the child goes to sleep. Most of these episodes last for fifteen minutes or less, but some can last for an hour or more. This sleep disorder in youngsters is often outgrown and treatment isn't usually necessary. Normally, a mother or father gently guiding the child back to bed is all that is needed. There is not any need to wake the child. Nonetheless, there's about 1% of the population that sleepwalk as adults. Adults that have this sleep disorder did not necessarily have it as a child. In adults a sleepwalking episode can be triggered by stress, anxiety, sleep fragmentation, sleep deprivation, or certain medical circumstances such as epilepsy. Treatment for adults with this sleep disorder is often dependent upon the amount of danger they are in during an episode. For example, a sleepwalker who opens doors and goes outside onto a busy city street is in danger. A sleepwalker that will get up and goes into the living room and sits down on a chair most likely isn't in danger. Treatments can include behavioral therapies, self hypnosis, or prescription medication. A sleepwalker, whether adult or child, needs to have a safe area in order that they don't get hurt during an episode. Precautions might be taken to get rid of some dangers. Parents ought to make certain the child's bedroom doesn't have any sharp or breakable objects. Doorways should be locked at night to keep the sleepwalker from going outside. Sometimes it is necessary to put bells on doors to alert the sleeping father or mother that their child is sleepwalking. Large glass windows and doorways ought to be covered with heavy drapery to lessen the possibility of having the sleepwalker walk by it while it is closed.
