This report reviews the historical developments leading to recognition of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea. It briefly summarized the rationale why the upper airway becomes at risk of collapsibility during sleep. It also reviews the complaints that vary with age. It emphasizes points of the examination that must be systematically look for. The report reviews the variables to monitor, to look for, and to be analyzed, and patterns not often looked at but that disturb sleep and lead to complaints and symptoms in sleep polysomnography.
