Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is often found in children affected by congenital or acquired craniomaxillomandibular malformations. This disease carries different levels of risk, ranging from attention problems at school to growth problems and serious disorders, such as cor pulmonale or sudden infant death. The examination that is most commonly used to evaluate the severity of OSAS is polysomnography, and the therapeutic course is often determined by the disease state. Considering the discrepancy between clinical history and polysomnographic findings, we felt the need to identify an instrument for evaluating OSA to be used as a support for polysomnography.
