Normally children are not supposed to snore, apart from episodes of nasopharyngitis. If this happens continuously, you must make an appointment with an otolaryngologist (ENT) who will check that there are no pathological problems, such as large tonsils or tonsils, result too many infections (ear infections, tonsillitis ...).
Snoring and sleep apnea in children
As for adults, a measure of sleep apnea will be done in children, because the lack of oxygenation of the brain can lead to cognitive development, learning but also growth problems.
The measurement of sleep apnea can be done at the child's home. It will be connected to a polygraph that measures possible breathing pauses and their duration.
