Snoring in children

Snoring in children results from obstruction in the airway for breathing as a result of the presence of adenoids behind the nose, enlarged tonsils, nasal polyps, enlarged nasal cartilage or the base of the tongue, or other uncommon causes. Snoring is dangerous and may lead to a lack of oxygen in the blood, which results in high pulmonary artery pressure and heart muscle hypertrophy in chronic cases. The issue must be taken seriously and one must go to the doctor to treat the cause of the airway obstruction. Snoring that only occurs during a cold is not dangerous
