Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Could Be the Reason Why Your Child Snores At Night, Say Docs
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) affects 2 to 6 percent of children of all ages. OSA even affects newborns that have enlarged tonsils and adenoids. Other causes of OSA in children are a large tongue, weakness in their muscles in the upper airway, nasal congestion, and narrow facial features.
Treatment of OSA is absolutely important to prevent serious health risks.
