What Are Airway Health & Sleep-Disordered Breathing?

Sleep Disordered Breathing is a condition where your child has difficulty breathing when sleeping. This can range from mild snoring/ mouth breathing to obstructive sleep apnea. When this occurs, there is suboptimal oxygen that travels to your child’s brain and it prevents him/ her from experiencing deep, quality, restorative sleep.

Why is your child’s Sleep Quality important?

Because poor quality sleep can negatively affect your child’s brain development and restoration, as well as affect their ability to concentrate/ perform during the day at school.
