The New Zealand Guidelines for the Assessment of Sleep-Disordered Breathing in Childhood 2014 was produced by the National Paediatric Sleep Medicine Clinical Network as an evidence-based summary for the assessment of children with sleep disordered breathing. It aims to address the following clinical management issues for paediatric health care professionals in New Zealand:

  • How should general practitioners and paediatricians approach the investigation of a child who snores?
  • Which children should be referred from around New Zealand to a sleep disorders centre for further evaluation?
  • What treatments are available for disorders of breathing during sleep in childhood and what are the known benefits of these treatments?
