Does My Child Have Sleep Apnea? | Dr Sanjeev Mohanty

What is Sleep Apnea?


Sleep apnea is likely if breathing stops for at least 10 seconds at a time during sleep. This is an indication that your child’s blood is not properly oxygenated. Your child is still growing and developing, even when their body is at rest. Sleep, growth, and performance in school can be impacted by sleep apnea. Both learning and behavior can be affected with sleep apnea. As the most common form of sleep apnea in children, obstructive sleep apnea occurs when something blocks or “obstructs” the airway while sleeping.
