Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Children often snore, usually causing no problem. ¬†Sometimes however, the upper airway of a child can get blocked leading to “obstructive sleep apnoea”, which is characterised by loud snoring punctuated by intermittent cessation of breathing.¬†This is most commonly due to severely enlarged adenoid and tonsil tissue, but there can be other causes.

Following a clinical assessment Mr Frosh can usually advise as to what treatment might be beneficial. Further information is available on adenoids and tonsil surgery and snoring in adults in the links from the buttons above.
