Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) is a sleep-related breathing disorder in which there is repeated obstruction to the upper airway, while the person is sleeping. It affects up to 5% of all children.
The obstruction causes its victims to repeatedly stop breathing during their sleep, often for 10 seconds or more and sometimes even for a minute or longer. Children who suffer from moderate or severe obstructive sleep apnea showed evidence of widespread brain cell damage.
