Sleep-disordered breathing describes a wide spectrum of sleep disturbances, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. The primary problem is collapse or blockage of a person's airway during sleep, resulting in shallow breathing or even pauses in breathing. In children, this is often due to large tonsils and adenoids.
