Press Release: Sleep-disordered breathing is a serious health risk to children and adolescents


MPowrx™ launches e-Book to help parents recognize their children’s sleep health issues

April 28, 2016

The health risks for children with sleep-disordered breathing is far worse than a simply a poor night’s sleep. Approximately 9 million children in the United States have sleep-disordered breathing and as many as 4 million children have obstructive sleep apnea. MPowrx™, leaders in developing innovative health and wellness products, has launched their latest e-Book about children’s sleep health: Sleep Apnea in Children.

The e-Book outlines the major causes and risk factors of sleep apnea in children, and goes on to explain how children can be diagnosed, and the treatment options available. Also featured in Sleep Apnea in Children is a quiz for parents that they can use to help identify if their children have sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea, sleep-disordered breathing, and snoring are disturbingly common in children and adolescents. The prevalence of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea is rising. Sleep-disordered breathing, which includes sleep apnea and snoring, affects 12% of children[1].

“Getting a proper night’s sleep is critical for both the mind and body, especially for children. It is imperative that children consistently have restful and restorative sleep to ensure proper growth and cognitive development. Over the past several years, however, doctors and pediatric medical professionals around the world have reported more instances of sleep apnea in children, which can be detrimental to their overall wellbeing and development. The prevalence of sleep apnea in children is reaching epidemic proportions,” says Dr. Nancy Markley, CEO of MPowrx™. “At MPowrx™ we are committed to helping people to understand their health, and to empower them towards better health and wellness.”
