PURPOSE: To find a significant AHI value during Nap polysomnography in Pediatric OSA.
METHODS: Snoring pediatric patients with regular nap schedule were informed and consented but we excluded those with medication affecting sleep. Patients underwent overnight polysomnography and nap polysomnography separately, but within 2 month of each other. Both tests were done with the same recording devices and in the same manner. Patient’s sleep behavior was observed by a sleep technician and were categorized into primary snoring, mild OSA, moderate OSA and severe OSA by apnea-hypopnea index (AHI). Sleep parameters between nap-PSG and standard-PSG were compared.
