Parasomnias in Children
These are defined as undesirable physical events or experiences that occur during entry into sleep or during arousal from sleep. They are often categorized as rapid eye movement (REM) or non-rapid eye movement (non-REM) depending upon whether they involve sleep entry or arousal. Some common parasomnias include night terrors, nightmares, confusional arousals, and sleepwalking (somnambulism). Teeth grinding, sleep groaning, sleep talking, and bedwetting can occur during any sleep period.
