On behalf of the Journal, I send a warm greeting to our colleagues across Asia in this month of June 2022. The COVID pandemic is entering its final phase and I hope I will be proved right that 2022 indeed spells the end of pandemic COVID. Time will tell.

This issue sees an excellent review coming from colleagues in Indonesia looking at the use of heated humidified high flow in children. This could not come more timely with the huge need for respiratory support to be given outside the ICU setting.

Diseases other than COVID continue unabated, COVID or not. OSAS is one of these. The current issue sees 2 papers addressing this disease. Our colleagues from Hong Kong presented an original study looking at the role of drug induced sleep endoscopy in teasing out the pathophysiology of OSAS and another group from Hong Kong reviewed the current evidence of training the orofacial muscles to mitigate OSAS. I believe that paediatric OSAS is under-diagnosed and under-treated globally with tremendous consequences like stroke, cardiovascular diseases. Colleagues are urged to incorporate asking symptoms of OSAS as a routine in the history taking.

On behalf of APPS, I would like to wish all readers a safe and happy summer.

Financial support and sponsorship
