Sleep disturbances both in early childhood of persons with DS have been mostly under estimated especially on their consequences on physical and neural development and functionning. Many international recent reports have shown that 60% of the children with DS syndrome aged even 4 months have OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) even if they do not snore and if their parents report not to have any sleep problem.
These patients have not only sleep apneas but also sleep fragmentation (frequent sleep arousals without apnea) and also sleep disorders breathing (SDB) which are important for normal development. We will give some new practical information to better handle with these problems in the population with DS according to ages. A specific mention will be given also to the relation between apnea and COVID-19 in these days of pandemia.
