Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Behavioral Problems and Quality of Life in Children
Speaker: Manasa Tripuraneni, BA
Date: Saturday, April 21, 2012
Time: 11:14 11:21am

San Diego, CA The degree of obesity does not predict obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) severity in children. Obese children have worse OSA, behavioral problems and quality of life than normal weight children. In normal weight children with a sleep disturbance behavioral and quality of life scores are similar regardless of the severity of the sleep disorder.

Seventy-three patients were included in the study. Thirty-five children had OSA and obesity (48%), 21 were normal-weight with OSA (29%), and 17 were controls (23%). There was no correlation between the degree of obesity and OSA severity. AHI was significantly higher for OSA obese versus OSA normal weight children (20 versus 9; p = 0.02) The OSA-18 total score, and BASC-2 mean score was worse for the OSA-obese than the OSA normal weight group (p=0.01, for both). There was no difference in quality of life or behavioral scores between the OSA normal weight and control groups.

Caregivers were asked to complete a consent document. Demographic and polysomnograpic data was collected as well as BASC-2 and OSA-18 questionnaires completed by caregivers. Children were assigned to one of three groups: obese with OSA, normal-weight with OSA, and a control group (normal weight with no OSA). The correlation between OSA severity and the degree of obesity as well behavior and quality of life measures were compared between the 3 groups. A p-value .05 was considered significant.
