SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING
This is connected to an inability to adequately breathe during the sleeping cycle. It is usually caused by blocks in the nasal passages, often caused by allergic rhinitis and allergies, which cause inflammation and swelling in the nasal passages that will disrupt normal breathing.
SLEEP DISORDERS AND ADHD
In the USA, the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention has reported that over five million children between the ages of three and seventeen have been diagnosed with ADHD. Further studies have analyzed eleven thousand children over a period of six years and has revealed that those who are suffering from sleeping disorders, such as sleep apnea, are 50-90% more likely to develop ADHD symptoms.
It was found that sleep disorders in children aggravated behavioral and emotional issues, such as anxiety, aggression, hyperactivity and depression. It has also been hypothesized that lack of sleep may damage brain development which can link to ADHD.
