While childhood sleep disordered breathing is underdiagnosed, awareness is increasing. A child’s growth and development are directly related to the quality of sleep. The quality of sleep may be related to the level of airway compromise, which may be related to the growth and development of the maxilla and mandible. This course will connect the dots from the lack of early growth to the airway compromise seen in children today. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: identify the differences between nasal and mouth breathing; understand the relationship between a child’s airway and sleeping; and understand the relationship between sleep disorder breathing and early childhood growth and development.
