Obstructive sleep apnea in children

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has been recognized frequently in children, and complications can occur when the condition is not diagnosed and treated properly. Adenotonsillar hypertrophy is the leading cause of childhood OSAS, although other causes are seen. Diagnosis of OSAS currently relies on the use of overnight polysomnography. This review highlights recent advances in the evaluation and treatment of childhood OSAS.
