Snoring in Children
Dr. Patrick Gibbons discusses snoring in children.
Jessica Noll: I’m Jessica Noll and I’m with Dr. Matthew Bridges and Dr. Patrick Gibbons. They’re with Commonwealth Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists. Today we’re talking about a problem that impacts children. Snoring. Dr. Gibbons, does snoring in children really surprise parents?
Dr. Gibbons: Honestly, it shouldn’t. Most kids will snore at least part of the time. It’s very common to have an issue. Maybe a child has an obstructive event with a cold or a respiratory infection, or perhaps an asthma exacerbation. And that can cause some snoring. I think it’s important to differentiate between snoring and obstructive breathing. If it’s snoring I don’t think there’s a need to intervene. But if it’s obstructive breathing, if again, the child is not breathing, not getting enough oxygen through the night, that is a reason to intervene.
Difficulty Breathing Through Nose
Dr. Bridges and Dr. Gibbons discuss patients who cannot breathe through their nose.
Jessica Noll: I’m Jessica Noll and I’m with Dr. Matthew Bridges and Dr. Patrick Gibbons, both with Commonwealth Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists. We’re talking today about folks who can’t breathe through their nose. What is causing this when you have a patient that comes to see you?
Dr. Matthew Bridges: Well, there can be lots of causes. Nasal allergy is one of the more common things we see that can lead to polyps and other things. That’s typically where the issue inside the nose is just swollen. But there can be structural abnormalities in the nose that can cause obstruction and that may need to be surgically repaired.
Jessica Noll: These kinds of abnormalities; does it require surgery?
Dr. Patrick Gibbons: If it’s something like a deviated septum or a mass, then that patient may need surgery. But if it’s something like nasal allergies, like Dr. Bridges suggested or some kind of inflammation problem, then many times medication will take care of the problem.
