Date and time
Wednesday 10th June
19:00 - 21:00
With breathing problems being of paramount concern during the Covid-19 pandemic, Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) in children may be particularly worrying for parents as it causes a total blockage of the airway. It is also important to identify the widespread problem of Allergic Rhinitis (AR), commonly known as hay fever, in children. According to Allergy UK, ‘up to 88% of children with AR have sleep problems, including micro-arousals’. Both conditions can lead to an interrupted sleep, which can have a big impact on children’s quality of life and cognitive function, as well as increase the risk of developing other conditions.
Consultant ENT Surgeon Mr Paul Chatrath, who has a specialist interest in sinus problems, allergies and children’s ENT disorders and snoring, will be exploring both these conditions in this extensive and interactive webinar.
In the first half, we will be assessing Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) in children and identifying the symptomatic distinctions from snoring. Mr Chatrath will be explaining how to detect OSA clinically, and will evaluate the different causes of OSA in children, such as inherited genetic factors or tonsillar and/or adenoid problems. We will be discussing the diagnostic work up, when and what type of investigations are needed, as well as the latest medical treatments including recent surgical advancements in the field.
The second part of the webinar will consist of a discussion on Allergic Rhinitis in children. We will be outlining the symptoms to look out for, alongside a recap on immunology. We will examine different types of allergy in children and investigation techniques such as a blood test, or radioallergosorbent test (RAST) which measures the amount of immunoglobulin E antibodies to allergens in your blood. Lastly, Mr Chatrath will explain the various medical, behavioural, surgical and immunotherapy treatments available.
