Acceptability and Performance on In-Home Polysomnography in Youth with Down Syndrome

Kelly, Andrea BridgetTapia, Ignacio Esteban


Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is common in children and adults with Down syndrome (DS). Because testing for OSAS can be inaccessible, expensive, and not well-tolerated, studying the impact of OSAS and its treatment upon learning, behavior, and heart disease risk is challenging. This study will explore how well the use of in-home testing for OSAS is tolerated by adolescents with DS and effective in diagnosing OSAS.
