Parents General Health Your Kid's Sleep
Everyone has brief pauses in their breathing pattern called apnea - even your child. Usually these brief stops in breathing are completely normal. Sometimes, though, apnea or other sleep-related problems can be a cause for concern. Read on to find out what it means when your child's doctor mentions apnea. Types of Apnea
The word apnea comes from the Greek word meaning "without wind." Although it's perfectly normal for everyone to experience occasional pauses in their breathing, apnea can be a problem when breathing stops for 20 seconds or longer. There are three types of apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed. Obstructive Apnea
This type of apnea is caused by an obstruction of the airway (such as enlarged tonsils and adenoids ), and it is a common type of apnea in children. As many as 1% to 3% of otherwise healthy preschool-age children have obstructive apnea. The most common symptom is snoring; others include labored breathing while sleeping, gasping for air, sleeping in unusual positions, and changes in color. Because obstructive sleep apnea may disturb sleep patterns, these children may also show continued sleepiness after awakening in the morning, and tiredness and attention problems throughout the day. Sometimes this can affect school performance. One recent study suggests that some children diagnosed with AD/HD actually have attention problems in school because of disrupted sleep patterns caused by obstructive sleep apnea.

Dentists play an important role in the team approach to the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Physicians, dentists, psychologists, and respiratory therapists all pool their knowledge to treat each patient appropriately and effectively. Dentists who are specifically trained in aspects of sleep medicine and have a command of multiple appliance modalities are of great help to physicians in treating patients with sleep disordered breathing problems. Oral Appliance Therapy Oral appliance therapy is one of several non surgical treatments for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances reposition the lower jaw and the tongue permitting the airway to remain open, and reducing or eliminating apneic events.

    Definition of Apnea
    Apnea is the most common problem of ventilatory control in the premature infant frequently prolonging hospitalization and the need for cardiopulmonary monitoring. The standard definition of apnea is cessation of inspiratory gas flow for 20 seconds, or for a shorter period of time if accompanied by bradycardia (heart rate less than 100 beats per minute), cyanosis, or pallor. [Back to Table of Contents]
    Types of Apnea
    Apnea has been classified into three types depending on whether inspiratory muscle activity is present. If inspiratory muscle activity fails following an exhalation, it is termed Central Apnea . If inspiratory muscle activity is present without airflow, this is termed Obstructive Apnea . If both central and obstructive apnea occur during the same episode, this is termed

    Encyclopedia Index A apnea Search
    Apnea (AP - nee - ah) means the abnormal cessation of respiration. In pediatric usage it is most often describes such activity in young infants, although obviously patients of any age can exhibit apnea; for example, a grand mal seizure may be associated with apnea for a few seconds. Babies with apnea may or may not exhibit bradycardia , which refers to slowing of the heart. In general, apnea without bradycardia is much less significant than apnea with slowing of the heart. Brief periods of apnea are normal during the sleep of newborns. Very young infants exhibit more irregular, "periodic" respiration than older children, and may stop breathing for a few seconds. Babies suspected of being at risk for more serious apnea, that is to say SIDS , are placed on an apnea monitor, which senses respirations as well as heart rate and gives a loud alarm sound if heart rate or breathing rate limits are violated. See also sleep apnea, the condition of apnea caused by physical obstruction of the upper airway in older children and adults.

    Sleep apnea can cause depression
    Sleep apnea can cause symptoms of apparent clinical depression which may respond quickly to treatment of the sleep disorder. A knowledge of the intellectual and emotional impact of sleep apnea may be important in making a correct differential diagnosis. Unfortunately, many physicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists may be unaware of this connection which may lead to apparent symptoms of depression. If there is a possibility that a patient's depression is caused by sleep apnea, they should undergo evaluation and, if necessary, receive treatment for their sleep disorder. In addition, people with sleep apnea may need support in addressing emotional aspects of treatment and recovery. Informed, trained therapists can provide essential therapy and support to the patient and the patient's family in the recovery process.
    The invisible epidemic of sleep apnea and snoring
    The impact of sleep apnea and snoring on sleep and health in the individual and for the public should not be ignored. According the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research: "Forty million Americans are chronically ill with various sleep disorders...Sleep apnea alone is the cause of excessive daytime sleepiness experienced by almost 20 million Americans... Overwhelming evidence from testimony and specific surveys suggests that the vast majority of Americans with sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated. ... " (

    Obstructive Sleep Apnea
    (showing a closed upper airway) Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is cause by the closing of the upper airway while asleep. The uvula and soft pallet collapses on the back wall of the upper airway. Then the tongue falls backward, collapsing on the back wall of the upper airway, the uvula and soft pallet forming a tight blockage, preventing any air from entering the lungs. The effort of the diaphragm, the chest and the abdomen only cause the blockage to seal tighter. In order to breathe the person must arouse or awaken, causing tension in the tongue thereby opening the airway, allowing air to pass into the lungs.
    (For a view of airway closure click here then use your BACK button to return.) OSA causes a drop in one's blood oxygen saturation (SaO2) and an increase in the blood's carbon dioxide (CO2). When the SaO2 drops the heart will start pumping more blood with each beat. If the SaO2 continues to drop the heart will start beating faster and faster. As the CO2 increases the brain will try to drive the person to breathe. The effort and action of the abdomen and chest will increase. Eventually that action can become severe enough to cause an arousal, clearing the upper airway blockage, allowing the person to breathe. Then you go back to sleep and it happens all over again. The American Sleep Disorder Association rates the average number of OSA events per hour as your Respiratory Distress Index (RDI). An RDI of to 5 in normal; 5 to 20 is mild; 20 to 40 is moderate; over 40 is considered severe. An apnea event must last at least 10 seconds to be considered an event. It is not uncommon to see RDIs well above the 40. In some cases RDIs were well above 100, with events lasting as long as 90 to 120 seconds and SaO2s going below 70% when normal is 95% to 100%.

    The ASAA is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing injury,
    disability, and death from sleep apnea and to enhancing the
    well-being of those affected by this common disorder. INFORMATION ABOUT SLEEP APNEA
    The Greek word "apnea" literally means "without breath." There are three types of apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed; of the three, obstructive is the most common. Despite the difference in the root cause of each type, in all three, people with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the rear of the throat collapses and closes during sleep. In central sleep apnea, the airway is not blocked but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe. Mixed apnea, as the name implies, is a combination of the two. With each apnea event, the brain briefly arouses people with sleep apnea in order for them to resume breathing, but consequently sleep is extremely fragmented and of poor quality. Sleep apnea is very common, as common as adult diabetes, and affects more than twelve million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health. Risk factors include being male, overweight, and over the age of forty, but sleep apnea can strike anyone at any age, even children. Yet still because of the lack of awareness by the public and healthcare professionals, the vast majority remain undiagnosed and therefore untreated, despite the fact that this serious disorder can have significant consequences.
