Presence of obesity or growth retardation in the child, drowsiness during the daytime, face downward extension, high palate structure, snoring at night when the patient is not sick, and especially a history of intermittent breathing. Treatment of the disease should be decided by the pediatrician and otorhinolaryngologist. Detailed ear-nose and throat examination of the child, endoscopy and nasal radiography to evaluate the size of tonsils and nasal flesh, monitoring during sleep, watching sleep video images can give an idea about sleep apnea. The final diagnosis is made by sleep test (polysomnography).How is the sleep test performed?
Sleep test is a test that evaluates the child's breathing, oxygen, sleep in the sleep laboratory. In children, the first step of treatment is to remove the tonsils and nasal flesh by surgery. In some patients, complaints may persist after surgery, and other allergic disorders and environmental factors should be considered. It is important to remember that not every snoring child has sleep apnea. Therefore, each child is special and appropriate treatment needs to be offered considering patient-specific factors.
