Snoring in Children.

Snoring in Children.

Snoring in Children has become very prevalent in recent years. Stats show that about 3% to 12% of preschool age children snore. They are otherwise well and just have primary snoring. Only about 2% of these have OSAS and this if untreated can lead to learning and behavior problems with short attention spans.


In contrast to children who have primary snoring they are likely to have disrupted sleep with snorts, short pauses or gasps. They may also have overly large tonsils/adenoids, breathe through their mouths, speak nasally and have nasal obstruction. Other symptoms may include poor weight gain or overweight and high blood pressure. Parents may need to find a hospital that does sleep studies,notably a nocturnal polysomnography. The childs sleep may be audio or videotaped, and willneed a specialist to determine whether he or she has sleep Apnea. It may be advised to remove tonsils/adenoids (adenotonsillectomy). Weight loss may be advised and help given and any allergies treated. Another treatment option is CPAPNasal Continuous Positive Air Flow Pressure - therapy with a nasal mask.
