Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is increasingly recognized in children. There is accumulating robust evidence to support early diagnosis and treatment of this condition. The purpose of this review is to provide an update on the epidemiology, clinical features, complications, and treatment of childhood OSA. The authors have also proposed an easy-to-follow flowchart on the management of children with snoring or sleep disturbance for clinical use by busy pediatricians.
