Children are not immune from sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
The American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery says potential complications include:
- Social problems resulting from loud snoring.
- Behavior problems and moodiness stemming from disturbed sleep.
- Delays in development and growth.
- Increased risk of obesity and cardiovascular problems.
