Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Sleep Apnea (suffocation) is defined as the absence of breathing during sleep.  A common reason for this medical condition is a poorly positioned jaw and / or tongue, which can lead to a blocked airway.  There is a 70% overlap between snoring and apnea in adults and children.  The American Association of Pediatrics 'Patient Parameters' recently stated all children should be screened for snoring and all children who snore should have a sleep study for evaluation of apnea because of ADD/ADHD and cardiovascular risk.
