Kids snoring leads to behavioral problems!

A recent study has suggested that kids who snore during sleeping, have a notably higher chance of developing behavioral issues when they are older. This particular research was published in the journal Pediatrics. In this experimental study, the cases of about 11,000 kids ranging from the age group 0 to 7 were studied.

The researchers found that in such cases about 40 to 100 percent kids are likely to develop neuro-behavioral problems by the age of 7. The scientists observed that snoring (by the kids) decreases Oxygen levels & increases percentage of Carbon dioxide in the brain, which results in the interruption of the restorative processes of sleep or in other words it imbalances various brain chemicals which eventually leads to the behavioral problems like hyperactivity & conduct issues after some years.

Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in young children is most common during their first year after birth. As per reports provided by the American Academy of Otolaryngology, Health & Neck Surgery, about one in ten children snore regularly & 2% to 4% kids have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleeping abnormality. When someone breathes with abnormal pauses during sleeping it's called apnea. Actually the pause in breathing is known as apnea.
