In order to accelerate research on pediatric sleep and its connection to health, Nationwide Children's Hospital (NCH) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) introduce the NCH Sleep DataBank. This dataset has 3,984 pediatric sleep studies on 3,673 unique patients conducted at NCH in Columbus, Ohio, USA between 2017 and 2019, along with the patients' longitudinal clinical data. The published polysomnography (PSG) contains the patient's physiological signals as well as the technician’s assessment of the sleep stages and descriptions of additional irregularities.
The novelties of this dataset include:
The NCH Sleep DataBank is a valuable resource for advancing automatic sleep scoring and real-time sleep disorder prediction, among many other potential scientific discoveries. Accompanying code in Python to assist users in interacting with the dataset is published on GitHub.
The NCH Sleep DataBank is only available for non-commercial use.

Covariate datasets derived from the original health_data files. The NSRR team recommends using the
nchsdb-dataset-harmonized dataset, which contains variables (e.g., nsrr_age, nsrr_bmi) that match other NSRR harmonized datasets.
