Abstract

Pediatric Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is often associated with behavioral problems, poor school performance, decreased quality of life and increased healthcare utilization. Adenotonsillectomy (T&A) leads to resolution of SDB in over 80% of children and results in behavioral improvement and better quality of life. Obese children, as well as those afflicted with craniofacial, genetic or neuromuscular disorders, are at greater risk for SDB than healthy children. This report highlights the need to recognize and treat SDB in children.
