Children sleep apnea due to sleeping position

New research has revealed that very young children with obstructive sleep apnea who sleep on their backs appear to have more respiratory problems, as measured by increases in the respiratory disturbance index (RDI).

According to the authors of the study, the severity of the &to=http://english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/379/10717_snoring.html' target=_blank>apnea could be underestimated in children who do not spend much time in this position.

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a condition in which airways become blocked periodically during sleep and breathing stops for brief periods.

Dr. Kevin D. Pereira and colleagues, from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, say that symptoms improve in adults with this condition when they avoid the supine position.
