This Special Issue will focus on sleep disordered breathing (SDB), a spectrum of pathologies of varying degrees of severity which includes habitual snoring, obstructive hypoventilation, upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The latter is common in children, affecting 2–5% of the pediatric population. Untreated OSA is linked to adverse cardiovascular and neurobehavioral outcomes and poor quality of life in children. Additionally, central congenital hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS), apparent life-threatening events (ALTE) and brief resolved unexplained event (BRUE) are part of sleep disorders. The awareness of SDB in children has steadfastly increased over the last several decades.
For this Special Issue, we are seeking original research and review articles focusing on advancements in the epidemiology, complications, diagnostic approaches and management of SDB, with particular attention to multidisciplinary approaches, new therapies and technologies. These papers will stimulate the continuing efforts to improve our understanding in this very interesting field.
The goal of this Special Issue is to serve as a source for pediatric clinical practitioners in the field of SDB for their daily practice, as well as for researchers and their future studies.
