Don’t ignore the snore!

If your child snores, its worth checking out.

A 2012 study from the International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology found that children who snored appeared to suffer impairment in neurocognitive and behavioral functions compared to non-snoring children, even if they didn’t have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, hypopnea or marked drops in oxygen.

Thats a fancy way of saying if your child snores, even if its not a sign of a serious sleep disorder like Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, it still can be affecting their concentration, learning and behaviour.

So don’t ignore the snore!

If your child snores and/or you’re concerned about their sleep or daytime function at school, concentration or behaviour, make an appointment to speak with your doctor.

You’ll all sleep better at night.
