Since sleep apnea causes poor rest, the effects often show up during children’ waking hours – – in the form of irritability and attention problems, for example. Studies also show that curing the problem with surgery may improve behavior problems and school performance, Olin said. The new findings are important, he explained, because they quantify the risk of breathing problems from tonsillectomy. But parents should also keep carefully the potential benefits in mind, he added. The findings are based on 23 studies that looked at tonsillectomy complications.
