Likeliness of Paediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Far North Queensland

Indicative Funding
$5,000 over 1 year
Paediatric obstructive sleep apnoea (POSA) is the most common and the most severe form of sleep disordered breathing in children. If left untreated, POSA can result in many negative consequences for children such as irritability, behavioural problems, learning difficulties, memory issues, lack of concentration, poor academic performance, compromised immunity and cardiovascular disease. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to improve the quality of life of affected children. It is suspected that many children in FNQ suffer from POSA and have remained undiagnosed. We are assessing how likely children in FNQ are having POSA to promote early diagnosis and management.
