Children's Snoring


Children's Snoring/ Snoring Treatment in Thane


Snoring Treatment in Thane: The commonest symptom of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is children’s snoring. Approximately 10  percent of children are reported to snore. Ten percent of these children (one percent of the total pediatric population) have obstructive sleep apnoea.

When an individual, young or old, obstructs breathing during sleep, the body perceives this as a choking phenomenon. The heart rate slows, the nervous system is stimulated, blood pressure rises, the brain is aroused, and sleep is disrupted. In most cases a child’s vascular system can tolerate the changes in blood pressure and heart rate. However, a child’s brain does not tolerate the repeated interruptions to sleep, leading to a child that is sleep deprived, cranky, and ill behaved.

The consequences of untreated sleep disordered breathing in children:


A problem if a child shares a room with a sibling and during sleepovers.

Sleep Deprivation

The child may become moody, inattentive, and disruptive both at home and at school. The child will lack energy.

Abnormal Urine Production

SDB also causes increased nighttime urine production, and in children, this may lead to bedwetting.


Growth hormone is secreted at night. Low GH secretion may lead to slow growth or development.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Research suggests SDB can be associated with ADD.

Poor Behaviour

The worse the child’s breathing symptoms, the greater their risk of such problems as hyperactivity, behavioral problems including aggressiveness and rule-breaking, anxiety and depression, and difficulty getting along with peers.

Affects on brain development

Newer research clearly demonstrates a lack of oxygen (and a brain blood flow) to the developing brain can affect memory, concentration and brain development. More recent research (published in late 2011) showed that the IQ difference between normal and sleep disrupted children can vary by 10 – 17 IQ points.’
