Paediatric Sleep Disordered Breathing – Snoring

Does my child snore or mouth breath?

Sleep is crucial for a healthy childhood physically and intellectually. Sleep disordered breathing is a disruption to the normal respiratory pattern of sleep. It is associated with physical health issues, as well as behavioural problems. If left untreated, and at the severe end of the spectrum, it can lead to hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, neuropsychiatric, developmental problems and “failure to thrive.”
