BACKGROUND It has been suggested that impaired dissipation of slow-wave activity (SWA) in children with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) may be a potential mechanism for daytime dysfunction. We aimed to examine whether resolution of SDB resulted in normalisation of SWA dissipation and whether this was associated with improved cognition and behaviour. METHODS Children (aged 3-6 y) diagnosed with SDB and age-matched non-snoring control children were followed up for 3 y after a baseline study… CONTINUE READING
