What is obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome?
The term "apnea" means a pause in breathing. Everyone occasionally takes small pauses in breathing. However, it's abnormal to pause breathing during sleep for 10 seconds or more. When breathing completely stops for this long, we call it "apnea." When breathing continues, but is decreased to half of what it had been for 10 or more seconds, we call it "hypopnea." Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that includes both apnea and hypopnea. In fact, "sleep apnea" soon will be renamed as obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) to be more inclusive of related problems. Therefore, this is the term we will use to describe the condition.

103. Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Sleep disordered breathing in children, from infancy through puberty, is similarto that in adults but has different causes, consequences, and treatments.
You are here: ENT LINK Kids E.N.T. Home Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea



Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is a common problem for adults leading to hypertension, heart attack, stroke, and early death. Other consequences are bedroom disharmony, excessive daytime sleepiness, weight gain, poor performance at work, failing personal relationships, and increased risk for accidents, including motor vehicle accidents.
Sleep disordered breathing in children, from infancy through puberty, is in some ways a similar condition but has different causes, consequences, and treatments. A child with SDB does not necessarily have this condition as an adult.
Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea
The premiere symptom of sleep disordered breathing is snoring that is loud, present every night regardless of sleep position, and is ultimately interrupted by complete obstruction of breathing with gasping and snorting noises. Approximately 10 percent of children are reported to snore. Ten percent of these children (one percent of the total pediatric population) have obstructive sleep apnea.
When an individual, young or old, obstructs breathing during sleep, the body perceives this as a choking phenomenon. The heart rate slows, the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated, blood pressure rises, the brain is aroused, and sleep is disrupted. In most cases a child’s vascular system can tolerate the changes in blood pressure and heart rate. However, a child’s brain does not tolerate the repeated interruptions to sleep, leading to a child that is sleep deprived, cranky, and ill behaved.

Alvi A, Lee SE. Putting sleep apnea to rest: tailored therapy reduces fatigue-related risks. Postgrad Med 2005;117(1) (online article) S leep apnea refers to the cessation of breathing during sleep for at least 10 seconds in adults or for two or more consecutive breaths in children. With a prevalence as high as 2% in women, 4% in men (1), and up to 10% in children (2), sleep apnea may be as common as diabetes in the general US population. Frequent sleep apnea episodes, each followed by awakening, result in sleep fragmentation and daytime sleepiness. During discussion of sleep apnea, the term hypopnea is also used to describe a significant reduction in airflow due to partial obstruction. The apnea-hypopnea index is defined as the total number of episodes of apnea and hypopnea per hour of sleep. A value of 5 or greater is abnormal and may be associated with excessive daytime sleepiness (3).

Sleep Apnea
  • What Is It? Symptoms Diagnosis Expected Duration ... Additional Info
  • What Is It? Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes people to stop breathing for short periods during sleep. These periods are called apneas. They usually last between 10 and 30 seconds. In severe cases, apneas can happen many hundreds of times each night, disrupting the person's ability to get a good night's sleep. This makes the person less alert during the day, which can lead to accidents. People with untreated sleep apnea are up to seven times more likely to be involved in motor vehicle accidents. People with untreated sleep apnea also are more likely to develop high blood pressure.

    Dr. Hazenfield Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor in Hawaii S leep Disorders: Snoring and Sleep Apnea:
    • Snoring
    Snoring is an age-old problem with many social consequences, including marital discord , separate bedrooms, even separation and divorce, and angry neighbors . Snoring usually occurs due to vibration of the tissue in the throat, usually while the patient is breathing through the mouth. A vibrating uvula Although in itself snoring is not necessarily dangerous, it may be a symptom of sleep apnea or other sleep disorders condition s which can be very dangerous. Until recently , the treatment for snoring has included such techniques as behavioral modification, weight loss, dental devices, nasal strips, drugs, and major (painful) surgery. But now, the treatment for snoring and many cases of sleep apnea may be a simple office procedure.
    • Sleep Apnea
      • Sleep apnea is usually obstructive; that is, the breathing passage is blocked between the nose and the voice box. If sleep apnea is severe enough, the oxygen in the bloodstream which is reaching the brain and other vital organs may fall to dangerous levels. The site(s) - or point(s) - of obstruction must be diagnosed before treatment can begin.

    Obstructive Sleep Apnea
    What is obstructive sleep apnea?
    Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a child stops breathing during periods of sleep. The cessation of breathing usually occurs because of a blockage (obstruction) in the airway. Tonsils and adenoids may grow to be large relative to the size of a child's airway (passages through the nose and mouth to the windpipe and lungs). Inflamed and infected glands may grow to be larger than normal, thus causing more blockage. The enlarged tonsils and adenoids block the airway during sleep, for a period of time. The tonsils and adenoids are made of lymph tissue and are located at the back and to the sides of the throat.
    During episodes of blockage, the child may look as if he/she is trying to breath (the chest is moving up and down), but no air is being exchanged within the lungs. Often these episodes conclude with a period of awakening and compensation for lack of breathing. Periods of blockage occur regularly throughout the night and result in a poor, interrupted sleep pattern.
    Sometimes, the inability to circulate air and oxygen in and out of the lungs results in lowered blood oxygen levels. If this pattern continues, the lungs and heart may suffer permanent damage.
