On obstructive sleep apnea in children with Down syndrome, from Boston

The good people at the Down Syndrome Program at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children recently have issued information for families about Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a common, and significant health problem for children and adults with Down syndrome. The information sheets are freely available online - we appreciate their generosity in sharing their resources so readily:
Have you been told that your child may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)?
OSA is a medical condition that causes breathing trouble during sleep. Check out our handouts below to learn more about OSA and how to test for it.

  • A long list of the Program's other handouts for families is also available from this page.
