Study Suggests Sleep Apnoea in Young Children Common after Adenotonsillectomy

Can young children have sleep apnoea? Recent studies say that they can. A study of children younger than 3 years of age with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) suggests that many of them will have residual OSA after an adenotonsillectomy (T & A) intended to treat it. We should all consider that OSA is a form of sleep-disordered breathing estimated to affect 2 to 3 percent of children. The data of the researchers involved in this study supports the finding that, although T & A leads to a dramatic improvement in this age group, a high proportion of this population will have residual OSA.
