Childhood Obstructive Sleep Apnoea: What Parents Want to Know

AM Li, DFY Chan, S Lam, YK Wing, TF Fok


This article is the result of five years of accumulating knowledge, experience gained from our clinical work and research carried out by our team on childhood obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). It is very much a review of our personal practice and we try to provide as much evidence based materials as possible though available data is often limited. There is no doubt that a large gap is still waiting to be filled regarding this important and common condition. We hope this article would help practicing clinicians to provide answers to questions commonly asked by parents of children suspected of having OSAS.

本文是我們研究組針對兒童睡眠呼吸暫停綜合征( OSAS)5 年臨床經驗和研究的總結。雖然所得到的資料有限,但我們結合自身的經驗做一綜述並希望盡可能提供詳盡的資料。毫無疑問,關於該病的重要性以及公眾認知程度上需要做的工作還很多。我們希望本文能對臨床醫生回答家長提出的懷疑孩子是否患上 OSAS 的問題能有所幫助。
