Obstructive sleep apnea

tonsils_mediumSnoring, mouth-breathing, and restless sleep due to a partially obstructed airway can definitely lead to poor sleep in children. This condition is called obstructive sleep apnea, or “sleep-disordered breathing” (SDB).

A similar condition occurs in adults, but pediatric SDB has different causes, consequences, and treatments. A child with SDB does not necessarily have this condition as an adult.
