The Mission of the Foundation for Airway Health is to help the public realize their maximum potential by championing the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of airway related disorders through collaboration, awareness, research, education and access to care.
Why the Airway?
New evidence clearly shows that certain facial types exhibiting retruded and narrowed jaws and long faces can predict a predisposition for a child to develop chronic health problems known to be associated with compromised nasal breathing during both wakefulness and sleep. It is, therefore, imperative that pediatric dentists, pediatricians and care givers recognize these early warning signs.LEAR MORE
Airway, Sleep, and Breathing Disorders
No age group is immune from poor airway health. Infants and children are particularly susceptible to the effects of poor airway health as their bodies – and especially their brains – are developing during this time. Often associated with older, obese men, OSA or other manifestations of poor airway health can be present in infants, children, teens, young adults, and slender women!
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is Serious
OSA causes disruptive, non-restorative sleep and decreases in the body’s oxygen level. This results in systemic inflammation and damage to the heart and brain over time. Patients are often sleepy and can have difficulty concentrating with memory problems.
