Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is a continuum of breathing abnormalities that affects children and adults. This disorder has been continuously evolving, particularly in children, with new insights in its pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatments, and outcomes. The purpose of this review is to provide a current framework for pediatric anesthesiologists to address the perioperative needs of these children to ensure their safe conduct through anesthesia.
