Habitual snoring is one of the prominent sleep disturbance caused in every individual irrespective of their age, but if snoring become problematic it become serious, it maybe because of heavy snoring, noisy snoring , it is seen most snoring is seen in children’s around twenty nine percentage of children are seen snoring. It is considered that snoring is vital sign in childhood development, some effect with long-lasting snoring and some may have come and go snoring. When children snoring become frequent and interrupt sleep, it indicates presence of sleepdisordered breathing, which maybe becomes serious
infrequent snoring may not have much serious effect, but regular and severe snoring may indicate the child may have sleep- breathe disorder, and if it continues it maybe lead to obstructive sleep apnea. It is seen that regular snoring in children may have effect on behavioral problems, cognitive development; effecting neurological system.Physicians have found out that the snoring maybe from genetics, or in family history. Snoring in children indicates increased upper airway resistance during sleep and symptom of sleep-breathing disorder. Environmental exposures causes like maternal smoking during pregnancy, current parental smoking, electrical cooking, central heating reported, household pets like cats, dogs, birds or rabbits, guinea pigs may affect allergies conditions . Another condition includes any breathing problems like asthma, Otitis media, cold, eczema, maternal asthma etc.. Signs of snoring in children effect Diagnosis of attention-deficit or hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Below-average weight gain Obesity Asthma problems Gasps or difficulty breathing while sleeping Bedwetting Bluish skin .
Throat infections Allergies Sleep Apnea breathing problem Sickle cell disease Craniofacial disorder If any further severity consultation of doctor is much insisted, if any tonsils, adenoids present surgery is done to remove them. For solutions some snoring devices are given but mostly given to adult than to children as it’s difficult for them to use and may interfere with their sleeping patterns and change in position of sleep, if any allergies trigger it is avoided. Diagnosis Polygsomnographic monitoring is done at night, 6-channel computerized psg, an oro nasal thermistor, a thoraco abdominal strain gauge, pulse oximeter, body-position sensor, leg electromyography, and static charge–sensitive bed. Analysis program included a possibility of automatic analysis of the night-time events; all recordings are manually checked by clinical neurophysiologist. Obstructive Apnea/ hypopnea index greater than 1, including Apnea/ hypopneas lasting for 10 seconds or more, is considered abnormal which is indicated as the criterion for OSAS. To detect snoring episodes during sleep by applying a time analysis of electric signals that are equivalent to snoring sound signals is detected and signal are calculated  Conclusion In total around sixty percentages of children’s develop snoring breathing problems, habitual snoring is considered as major risk effect leading different effect on up growing children’s and affect the cognitive behaviour problems while studying, learning for improvements consultation of neurophysician is recommended.
