  1. Pediatric Obstructive Sleep ApneaStuart Morgenstein, D.O.

  2. Goals • Upper airway anatomy • Causes of Obstructive Sleep Apnea • Diagnosis • Treatment • New 2011 Tonsillectomy Guidelines • Tonsillectomy Techniques

  3. American Academy of PediatricsPractice Guidelines April, 2002 • All children should be screened for snoring • Sleep hx for snoring should be a part of routine health care hx

  4. Introduction • Prevalence OSAS 2% Children • 3-12% “ Primary Snoring” • Peak incidence Preschoolers (4-6yo) (tonsils/adenoids largest in relation to airway size overall) • 25-30% snoring children have OSAS

  5. Risk Factors • African-American 4 X risk • Obesity – prepubertal 5 x teens • Hx Prematurity - 3 X risk • ?? Prior T&A • Positive Family Hx • Cerebral Palsy / Syndromes

  6. Definition Primary Snoring • Snoring without obstructive sleep apnea , frequent arousals from sleep, or gas exchange abnormalities • Healthy, thriving kids. Rested in AM. Active. Growing. Reasonable behavior.

  7. Definition OSA • “Disorder of breathing during sleep characterized by prolonged partial upper airway obstruction and/or intermittent complete obstruction that disrupts normal ventilation during sleep and normal sleep patterns” . Pediatrics Vol 109 No.4 April 2002

  8. OSA Definition in Children • Challenging to define with the same precision as adults • Normal variability of sleep patterns • Lack of widely available and Reproducible sleep lab measurements • Brief apneas may be physiologic : infants/prematurity • Brief cessation of oronasal air flow is normal with end of a breath cycle

  9. Definition • Apneas common but disconcerting to parents: gasping for air, waking up “mini-arousals” • What constitutes apnea/hyponea unclear , not well defined, varies with age

  10. Sleep Requirements • School age: 10+ hrs. • High School/College: 9+ • Average: 7 hrs/ sleep deprivation • (cell phones, MP3”s, computers ) • Impact: MVA, risk taking behavior, school dysfunction, poor dietary choices, disciplinary problems

  11. Morbidity OSA • Behavioral/ Mood Disturbances/ ? ADHD • Inattention/ Poor Memory/Hyperactivity • School Problems : Low IQ • Family Disruption • Reduced quality of life • Pulmonary Hypertension/Elevated Diastolic /Increase left Ventricular wall thickness • Increased healthy expenses

  12. Neurobehavioral Consequences • Deficits in learning, memory , vocabulary • IQ loss of 5 points or more • Apneic events inversely related to memory and learning performance • Treatment of OSA liley improves behavior, attention, quality of life, neurocognitive functioning.

  13. Metabolic Consequences • Incidence: type 2 Diabetes 30% OSA patient vs. 18 % no OSA • Increase glucose intolerance and insulin resistance

  14. Causes • Craniofacial Abnormalities ie:Choanal Atresia/Cleft Palate • Hypertrophic Tonsils and/or Adenoids (Most common) • Obesity • GERD (Laryngeal/pharyngeal edema) • Neuromuscular Disorders : MD • Achondroplasia • Mucopolysaccharidosis • Nasal Polyps (CF)

  15. Craniofacial Disorders • Down syndrome • Crouzon • Aperts • Treacher-Collins • Pierre-Robin sequence • Nager’s Syndrome • Goldenhar’s Syndrome • Choanal Atresia

  16. Pierre Robin Sequence • Micrognathia/Mandibular Hypoplasia • Glossoptosis • Cleft Palate

  17. OSA and OBESITY • Narrowing Upper airway • Increase pharyngeal floppiness • Limitation diaphragm movement – restrictive effect • Increased abdominal and chest wall mass – decrease lung volume

  18. OBESITY and INFLAMMATION • Tumor necrosis factor • Interleukin (IL) 6 • Leptin

  19. Diagnosis OSA • Caregiver Obervations • Sleep Study Required to confirm Dx (Exam findings limited correlation ) • Limited consensus what is “abnormal: • Sleep centers use different scoring criteria • Adult OSA criteria not applicable to children • Must use age related criteria for OSA:

  20. Caregiver Observations • Snoring/ Arousals/ Agitated sleep • Labored breathing • Neck Hyperextension • Excessive daytime sleepiness/ naps • Hyperactivity or aggressive behavior • Enuresis

  21. Diagnosis:Sleep Study (Polysomnogram)”Gold –Standard” • Oxygen saturation • Volume/frequency of oronasal air flow • Spirometry volumes/flow rates • Respiratory muscle (ie: chest) excursion • End-Tidal pCO2 • ECG • Cortical activity EEG

  22. Sleep Study (Polysomnogram) • Apnea: Cessation of breathing 10+sec • Hypopnea: (hypoventilation) O2 desaturation 3- 4% 10sec or more • AHI: apnea/hypopnea index: • #apnea + # hypopnea = AHI • RDI: #apnea + #hypopnea / total sleep time

  23. Diagnosis OSA: Sleep Study • End-tidal pCO2 50-55m Hg 10% TST) ?? • End-tidal pCO2 45mm Hg or greater 60% of total sleep time ?? • AHI/ RDI ??? Abnormal : No validated severity scales available: > 1 ? > 5 etc • CAUTION: Be careful comparing sleep studies from different labs. Controversy exists: which respiratory events in children are significant enough to be recorded ?

  24. American Academy of Oto/Hd & Neck surgery • Clinical Practice Guideline: Polysomnography for Sleep- DisorderedBreathing Prior to Tonsillectomy in Children • July, 2011

  25. # 1 Complex Medical Conditions: Obesity, Down Syndrome, Mucopolysaccharidoses, Craniofacial Abnormalitites, Neuromuscular disorders, Sickle cell dz,

  26. # 2 No comorbidities listed in #1 and need for OR is uncertain or there is discordance between tonsil size on exam and reported severity of OSA

  27. #3 : In children for whom Sleep Study (PSG) is indicated, clinicians should obtain laboratory –based (attended) study when available vs. Portable (Home) Monitoring (PM)

  28. Sleep Studies • Inconvenient • Expensive • ?? Unavailable

  29. When To Do Sleep Study??? • Family concerns ie: reassurance • Physician concerns ie: confirmation

  30. Treatment • Weight loss/ ? Bariatric Surgery: Major Risks • CPAP – use will increase in future: obese teens • T&A (? 10-20% residual OSAS) • Mandibular Advancement • Distraction Osteogenesis • Tracheostomy • Repair Choanal Atresia • Tongue Reduction • Hyoid Advancement • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)

  31. Weight Loss • ie: weight loss 18 kg over 20 weeks, AHI decrease 14 to 2 / Hr. • Bariatric surgery : 58 kg loss over 5 months AHI decrease 9 to 0.7 / hr.

  32. Difficulties with CPAP Tx • Difficulty wearing • Skin breakdown • Nasal congestion • Midface hypoplasia • Reserve for complex cases

  33. Repair Choanal Atresia • Transnasal/Endoscopic • Transpalatal

  34. Treatment Pierre Robin Sequence • Prone position (70% Successful) • vs. SIDS • Nasopharyngeal airway (“trumpet”) • Tonque/lip adhesion procedure • Mandibular distraction • Tracheostomy • ?T&A (Abnormal nasal speech post-op)
