Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) consists of a series of disorders varying from primary snoring to OSAHS. Untreated SDB affects cognition, behavior, development, and the child’s quality of life. Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy are the primary treatment for child SDB. However, recent studies found that many children with SDB had abnormal PSG after surgery, and in this case, NPPV should be used. Of course, non-invasive positive pressure ventilation is not just a supplemental therapy for surgical treatment of SDB.

It is also an important non-surgical option with well documented clinical efficacy and safety. However, during long-term home-based therapy, intensive follow-up and close monitoring of caregivers is necessary to ensure patient safety, particularly for children in the developing countries and regions. We have done some research about children’s CPAP therapy, especially in the internet-based remote monitoring field, and had published some articles. We had evaluated the practicality, convenience and satisfaction of the remote monitoring system, and we will be glad to share our experience with more people. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
