CPAP Mask for Kids
Sleep apnea is a disorder that can affect people of all ages. Up to three percent of otherwise healthy children under age eight have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and factors such as obesity, parents smoking and large tonsil can increase the risk. Symptoms in this age range vary greatly, from trouble paying attention in class to nighttime bedwetting, making it hard to diagnose. For those who have been diagnosed, CPAP machine therapy for kids can be just as effective as for adults. However, since your child's face is much smaller, they will need a smaller CPAP mask in order to get the benefits.
