Airway problems in children

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a medical condition in which children have difficulty breathing when they are asleep. Obstructive sleep apnoea is common and affects between 1 and 3% of children. The peak age-group is the pre-school years. Problems that OSA can cause include impacts on daytime learning, behaviour, and cardiovascular health. Dr Mahony has successfully diagnosed and treated many young patients with sleep apnoea and other airway problems.
