Sleep and Performance for Professionals
Mark Splaingard, MD, is the director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and professor of Clinical Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He is board-certified in pediatrics, pediatric pulmonology, physical medicine and rehabilitation and sleep medicine. Dr. Splaingard’s research has concentrated on the outcomes of children with chronic pulmonary and acquired neurological disorders with a recent focus on sleep disorders in children. In 2013, his research projects included studies on a modified smoke alarm to awaken children during slow wave sleep, randomized trial of behavioral treatments for toddlers with insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea in children with bipolar disorder, drugs mimicking narcolepsy in children, sleep problems in cystic fibrosis with pulmonary hypertension and the pathophysiology of aerodigestive reflexes in sleeping infants. In addition, he has discovered that his faith and professional life can be integrated to a great degree and enjoys how his relationship with Jesus Christ informs and energizes his life.
