Description

Do you know some one who has lost a child to SIDS? (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Do you know that medical research is now linking SIDS and Infant Sleep Apnea together in more cases everyday? Do you know a child that has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD? Statistic show that we have approximately 3 MILLION children today on some type of ADD or ADHD medication and that 33% to 47 % could be taken off the medication with a simple sleep study test or a cardio test, which could or would show the underlying problem. Most children just need to have a simple procedure done of a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy or both. Statistics show over 2 million children in this country today have some type of sleep disorder. An estimated 30 to 40 % of children do not get enough sleep. Statistics show that 18 million Adult American suffer from sleep apnea and an estimated 10 million are still undiagnosed today. Sleep Apneas has been linked to other problems in childhood such as SIDS, ADHD, Autism, Obesity and more. E ducation and research is the key to the success and (infant) survival of children afflicted with sleep apnea and pulmonary issues. Providing the proper information, education and public awareness, can and will make a tremendous positive impact in the lives of children.
