Sleep Patterns in Children With and Without Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The investigators are doing this study to look at sleep problems, daytime sleepiness, and thinking and behavior patterns in children with arthritis and in children without arthritis. Arthritis is a problem with joints. Some children have arthritis and some children do not have arthritis.
Sleep disordered breathing is a sleeping problem in which some children snore and have pauses in their breathing during sleep. It is associated with not enough or fragmented sleep, poor school performance, problems paying attention, and behavior problems.
The investigators do not know how many children with arthritis have sleep problems, and how it is linked to daytime sleepiness and children's learning, and behavior patterns compared to children without arthritis. The investigators need to study both children with arthritis and children without arthritis to learn more about these connections and to understand if they are the same or different in children with arthritis and in children without arthritis.
|Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis||Behavioral: comparison of types of sleep disordered breathing|

- Prevalence of Sleep Disordered Breathing [ Time Frame: 3.5 years ]
- Measures of Daytime Sleepiness [ Time Frame: 3.5 years ]After the overnight sleep study, children will undergo multiple sleep latency tests which are four 20-minute nap opportunities that assess daytime sleepiness.

Behavioral: comparison of types of sleep disordered breathing
Overview of Study:
- Children and their parent will be scheduled to come to the University of Washington School of Nursing Sleep Laboratory for overnight polysomnography, and to complete multi-sleep latency tests and a battery of neurobehavioral performance tests the next day at a convenient time and day.
- Children will be asked to complete a sleep, symptoms (pain, fatigue), behavior, and day to day activity surveys, and the parent who accompanies the child to the laboratory, will be asked to complete surveys assessing demographics, child's usual sleep, behavior, school performance, health status, and family functioning.
- Children will also be asked to spit in a container and urinate in a container upon awakening in the morning after their sleep study.
Primary Aims of the Study:
- Compare indices of sleep disturbances, risk factors, and type of sleep disordered breathing(primary snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea) in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) to age, sex matched control children.
- Compare scores on neurobehavioral tests and daytime sleepiness; and to describe associations between indices of sleep disturbances on neurobehavioral performance and daytime sleepiness in JIA to age, sex matched control children.
1. Describe and compare parent report of child's sleep habits, fatigue, behavior, school performance, day-to-day activity, and family functioning in children with JIA to age, sex matched control children.
