A new Study shows how improving airway in children can make drastic improvements in Quality of Life and Behavior.

Treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing in this article was treated by Adeno-tonsilectomy. It has been made clear in numerous studies that children with airway problems also have underdeveloped maxillas in most cases.

This can result in headaches, migraines, TMJ disorders, depression, anxiety, snoring, sleep apnea and a wide variety of health issues affecting the cardiovascular system, endocrine systems, and musculoskeletal systems.

Expansion orthodontics can establish better airway for a lifetime while preventing ADD, ADHD, TMJ disorders and headaches in the future.

The DNA Appliance and Epigenetic Orthodontics, The bioblock appliances and orthtropics are all directed at growing healthier airways, a process David Signh BDS, P:hD has labeled Pnumopedics

To investigate longitudinal changes in behavior and quality-of-life (QoL) in children with sleep disordered breathing (SDB) after adenotonsillectomy (AT).
This study prospectively enrolled 148 children who underwent AT for SDB. Caregivers filled out Korean attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) rating scale (K-ARS) and Korean version of the obstructive sleep apnea-18 (KOSA-18) at preoperative 1 day, postoperative 1 month, and postoperative 6 months. Longitudinal changes in K-ARS and KOSA-18 were evaluated and compared among subgroups.
Both K-ARS and KOSA-18 scores improved immediately at postoperative 1 month and were maintained at postoperative 6 months. The mean preoperative K-ARS scores of the non-ADHD, ADHD-trait, and overt-ADHD groups showed uniformly immediate and sustained improvements. Also, the mean preoperative KOSA-18 scores of the small, moderate, and large impact groups were significantly improved both at postoperative 1 month and 6 months. The changes in behavior and QoL showed no significant differences with regard to the aforementioned factors.
After AT, we may expect immediate and sustained improvements in behavior and QoL in children with SDB regardless of preoperative symptom severity. Moreover, by performing AT, improvements in behavior and QoL are expected regardless of sex, age, allergic trait, or concurrent coblation-assisted turbinoplasty. These findings may help our colleague physicians counselling pediatric SDB patients and their caregivers.
