In children, the most abundant available information regarding the effects of paediatric sleep disturbance on daytime function has been obtained by studying children with sleep disordered breathing (SDB). The purported underlying pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for these deficits include hypoxia secondary to obstructive apneas/hypopneas and/or disrupted sleep architecture from frequent arousals during sleep. This review will present evidence that, while hypoxia is likely to play a… CONTINUE READING
