Ask the Nurse

Seeking more information regarding SWS issues? Ask the SWSC’s resident registered nurse.

This feature is not intended as a means of diagnosis for yourself and/or your child, but only offers advice and information for SWS and related symptoms. While using this feature, please keep in mind that you should always consult with and follow the instructions and advice of your own physician. In no way is the advice you receive from SWSC Ask the Nurse to be used in place of the opinion of a physician. This service is being offered to parents to provide support and reassurance.
