Does Your Child Snore?

​​As a parent, you need to be aware of your child's sleep and snoring patterns. In this video, Romaine Johnson, MD, MPH, FACS, Assistant Professor of Pediatric Otolaryngology at UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas, explains why it is important to talk with your child's doctor if your child snores. A sleep study may be needed to monitor your child while he or she sleeps to determine if a sleep disorder, such as obstructive sleep apnea, is present. Dr. Johnson also explains why enlarged tonsils and androids sometimes cause snoring.
