Pediatric Sleep Apnea

Just like adults, many children suffer from sleeping disorders that prevent them from getting a sufficient amount of sleep. Pediatric sleep apnea is a common sleeping disorder that involves a narrowing of the upper airway during sleep, causing patients to experience short periods of disrupted breathing that can interfere with sleep. Patients with this condition may experience snoring, mouth breathing, restless sleep and bed-wetting, as well as difficulty concentrating when awake.

Sleep apnea may develop as a result of enlarged adenoids or tonsils, obesity or muscle weakness. Treatment for this condition often involves surgical removal of the tonsils and adenoids, which is done through a safe, minimally invasive procedure. Weight loss and treatment of other underlying conditions can also help improve the symptoms of sleep apnea.
