How would I know if my child has OSA?
- Mouth Breathing. When your child inhales and exhales through the mouth, it means that something is blocking the nasal passages.
- Enlarged Tonsils. Tonsillitis is also common in children considering little children love eating sweets. More often, enlarged tonsils would also block the airway that will interrupt their sleep at night.
- Overweight. Study shows that 90 percent (or even higher) of obese or overweight children are suffering from OSA. So, if your child is overweight and always having a hard time sleeping at night, there is a greater possibility he/she has sleep apnea.
What can I do to help my child get over it?
Above all, the tender and loving care is all our children need to be assured that everything will be just fine.
