Snoring in children is not at all normal, in fact an infant in the first few months of their life can have some noisy breathing. However if your child has been taken care in a neonatal ICU, what we call as NICU after birth then any kind of noisy breathing would be assessed. Here at our hospital, we have all the expertise to assess the delicate ones on the out patients as well, so that tour child does not go through the general anaesthesia and interventions till the diagnosis is reached, we offer out patient based flexible nasolayngoscopy, which is very safe and it is done in a safe environment. We have the expertise of taking care of these children if they require any surgical intervention. Lets keep in mind when these little ones are in the ICU or ventilated or intubated, the rest of the breathing pipe and breathing structure may get some collateral damage. So you should make sure that if the children are having any kind of noisy breathing or difficulty in swallowing, it should be investigated by a paediatric ENT surgeon. Lets talk about snoring in children. The commonest cause for snoring in children in enlarged tonsils and adenoids. Usually it will be an ENT surgeon who will be taking care of this. Adenoids are sitting at the back of the nose we do an outpatient based endoscopy so that we can show you the size of the adenoids and how much it is blocking your child’ s breathing, we also offer all the techniques and the latest ways of operating these adenoids and tonsils, which is called as coblation. So once the patient is on our paediatric ENT’s hands, he will get the best of the world class treatment in our hospital.
