Children with syndromic or complex craniosynostosis are at risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) because of midface hypoplasia and collapse of the pharynx. The criterion standard in diagnosing OSA is polysomnography. The aims of this study were to analyze the feasibility of a home cardiorespiratory monitor in children with syndromic or complex craniosynostosis and to analyze whether oximetry alone or the sum of the amplitudes of the thoracic and abdominal movements (X flow) are… 

Accuracy of Detecting Obstructive Sleep Apnea Using Ambulatory Sleep Studies in Patients With Syndromic Craniosynostosis

Ambulatory sleep studies are reliable for diagnosing OSA in older children and can be used to determine clinical decision-making and recommend implementing ambulatory sleep studies in a protocolized management.

How does obstructive sleep apnoea evolve in syndromic craniosynostosis? A prospective cohort study

OSAS is highly prevalent in syndromic craniosynostosis and there is some natural improvement, mainly during the first 3 years of life and least in children with Apert or Crouzon/Pfeiffer syndrome.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Specific Quality of Life and Behavioral Problems in Children with Syndromic Craniosynostosis

OSA is related with a lower quality of life in children with syndromic craniosynostosis, and Behavioral problems were more common in boys with Apert and Muenke syndrome.

Utility of Screening for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome in Children with Craniofacial Disorders

A substantial portion of craniofacial patients referred for polysomnography was found to have obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, however, the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire is not a good screening tool for obstructiveSleep Apnea syndrome in children with cranioFacial conditions.



Evaluation of a new device for home cardiorespiratory recording in children.

The results of single-night unattended recordings at home with the HCRD fell short of expectations based on strict scoring criteria in this study.

Normal polysomnographic values for children and adolescents.

Overnight polysomnographic results in the pediatric age group differ from those in adults, and recommendations for normal polysOMnographic criteria are given.

Nocturnal Pulse Oximetry as an Abbreviated Testing Modality for Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Oximetry could be the definitive diagnostic test for straightforward OSA attributable to adenotonsillar hypertrophy in children older than 12 months of age, or quickly and inexpensively identify children with a history suggesting sleep-disordered breathing who would require PSG to elucidate the type and severity.

Breathing patterns in prepubertal children with sleep-related breathing disorders.

Abnormal, nonstandard breathing patterns were associated with the same symptoms as those in children with apnea and hypopnea and were more commonly present when there was incomplete resolution of initial symptoms that led treating practitioners to request further treatment.

Can parents predict the severity of childhood obstructive sleep apnoea?

Whether parents' observations can be used to predict the severity of the obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome in children and neither any single nor combinations of observations showed high values for both sensitivity and specificity.

Clinical correlates of periodic breathing in neonatal polysomnography

Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

Evidence-based knowledge of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is reviewed to review the clinical symptoms, syndromes, polysomnographic findings and variables, and treatment options, and the authors' recommendations are reviewed.

A comparison of apnea-hypopnea indices derived from different definitions of hypopnea.

The addition of arousal-based scoring criteria for hypopnea causes only small changes in the AHI, but if OSA is defined solely by an AHI value, the measured prevalence of OSA will increase.

Portable recording in the assessment of obstructive sleep apnea. ASDA standards of practice.

The current knowledge base regarding portable recording in the assessment of OSA is reviewed, including technical considerations, validation studies, potential advantages and disadvantages, issues of safety, current clinical usage and areas most in need of further study.

Apnea-Hypopnea Indexes Calculated Using Different Hypopnea Definitions and Their Relation to Major Symptoms

The diagnosis value of apnea-hypopnea indexes (AHIs) determined by different hypopnea definitions was evaluated and the value AHIAASM= 5 had the highest sensitivity and specificity.
