Sunday, July 31, 2005

WESTCHESTER, Ill. -- Children with frequent loud snoring, learning problems or excessive day sleepiness are more likely to have sleep-disordered breathing, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. Results show that children who frequently snore or have learning problems are three times more likely to have SDB, while children with excessive day sleepiness are twice as likely to have a disorder. The study also shows that slightly more boys than girls have SDB.
