Snoring is a common condition affecting children. It is caused by the partial obstruction of the airways during sleep.
In severe cases, the complete obstruction of the airways can cause a child to stop breathing during sleep. This condition is known as obstructive sleep apnea. It usually means that the airway has collapsed during breathing despite respiratory efforts and until the brain wakes up there will be no air entry and therefore no oxygenation of the organs and other tissue.
Snoring and sleep apnea may be caused by enlarged adenoids or tonsils as well as Rhinitis or a blocked nose.
Early investigation and treatment are imperative in order to prevent conditions worsening resulting in serious complications.
