Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in children

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) in children means that the child has a respiratory delay due to narrow airways. This means that the child has a car sound when inhaled, usually snoring sounds, and sleeps anxiously. The lack of good sleep allows the child to become tired or hyperactive during the days. It can also be difficult to gain weight. If your child has a respiratory break or strained breathing while sleeping, contact a health care center.
