Sleep-Disordered Breathing & Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder in which someone frequently stops breathing for short periods of time throughout the night. This can be caused by relaxed soft tissue in the back of the throat collapsing and blocking the airway or the brain not properly signaling the lungs to breathe. In children, the effects of sleep apnea can become apparent in both their physical well-being and their behavior. Sleep apnea treatment can greatly improve a child’s quality of life and our seminars will show you how to treat your little patients’ sleep apnea!
