Paediatric Sleep Apnea
Paediatric sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects children and is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. These pauses, called apneas, can occur multiple times throughout the night and can last for a few seconds to a few minutes. Sleep apnea can be caused by a variety of factors, including structural abnormalities in the airways, obesity, and neurological disorders.
It is important for parents to be aware of the signs and symptoms of paediatric sleep apnea and to seek medical treatment if they suspect their child may be affected. Proper treatment can help children get the restful sleep they need and can prevent long-term health complications.
