Obstructive sleep apnoea / hypopnoea syndrome

At SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, we study each case in depth to determine the cause of obstructive sleep apnoea / hypopnea syndrome, also called OSAHS, in children.

In general, the most common cause of OSASHS in children is having large tonsils and adenoids. A comprehensive study allows us to apply the best therapeutic indication, which may be tonsil reduction.
