Sleep Apnea in Teens & Kids

Sleep Apnea in teens & kids revolves around difficulty breathing during sleep, which in turn disrupts your sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (which is caused by a complete or partial obstruction of your airway while you sleep resulting in a near or complete cessation of breathing) is the most common, however there are a few different types of sleep apnea. You may also have central sleep apnea (which is a neurological issue that leads to disrupted breathing and sleep fragmentation) or mixed sleep apnea (a blend of obstructive and central sleep apnea).
