Twenty-two infants and children were found to have clinically significant obstructive sleep apnea. A history suggesting complete or partial airway obstruction during sleep was obtained on all patients, and physical examination of the sleeping patient revealed snoring, retractions, or OSA in 21 patients. Nevertheless, the mean delay in referral for 20(More)
Bed sharing has been promoted as facilitating breastfeeding but also may increase risks for sudden, unexpected infant deaths. This prospective cohort study was performed to determine the prevalence of adult and infant bed sharing and its association with maternal and infant characteristics. Demographic data were collected from 10,355 infant-mother pairs at(More)

Most children with obstructive sleep apnea will benefit from tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. Although polygraphic monitoring remains the definitive diagnostic technique, we wondered if all children suspected of having OSA require such evaluation. We therefore administered a standardized questionnaire to the parents of 23 children with polygraphically(More)
The pathophysiology of SIDS remains unknown. Although a multifactorial cause appears plausible on the basis of available data, new data are needed to determine which components of this multifactorial hypothesis are most important and whether other factors need to be added. We need to better understand control of breathing in the newborn infant and the(More)
The diagnosis, management, and long-term outcome of 32 patients with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome are summarized. Sleep hypoventilation was severe in all cases, resulting in an alveolar carbon dioxide pressure (mean +/- SEM) of 62 +/- 2.5 mm Hg and a hemoglobin saturation of 65% +/- 3.3% without ventilatory or arousal response.
