When (and how) should you evaluate a child for obstructive sleep apnea?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Well-child visits are the appropriate time to screen all children for a history of snoring and apnea (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, based on expert opinion). Children should be further evaluated for obstructive sleep apnea if parents note habitual nightly snoring, especially if accompanied by pauses, snorts, or gasps (SOR: C, based on case series and expert opinion).
