Abstract

Humans breathe an average of 20 times per minute, totalling about 30,000 times a day, and swallow nearly 2,000 times a day. These functions are vital for life. Growing children must adapt their developing structures to various destabilizing processes. When these factors outweigh the compensatory mechanisms, growth may become unbalanced by favoring the development of pathological processes such as sleep breathing disorders.
