Diagnosis and Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Children
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2023) | Viewed by 2127
This Special Issue will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea in children in with underlying pulmonary conditions.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep breathing disorder in children, affecting 2-5% of the general pediatric population. Untreated OSA is linked to adverse neurobehavioral and cardiovascular outcomes and is associated with poor quality of life in children. Several pulmonary conditions are considered risk factors for OSA, including asthma, BPD and restrictive lung disease related to neuromuscular weakness.
For this Special Issue, we are seeking research and review articles focusing on the prevalence, pathophysiology, disease interactions and management of OSA in these situations.
