Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Also Affect a Children
Sleep Apnea (OSAS) - obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Kids can come down with a Cold at any time, so you should be aware that over-the-counter cough and cold medicines should not be used in children under the age of 6. Health Canada has requested that all manufacturers relabel certain medications by fall 2009 to say they should not be used by children younger than 6. Products affected are those that include antihistamines, antitussives, expectorants and decongestants. The decision comes after a review of cough and cold medicines found little evidence that they have any benefit for children. Additional reports show that such medications are misused and can result in side effects when used by children. Young children often suffer from more colds than older children, which increases their exposure to harmful ingredients. Young children are also less likely to be able to communicate side effects. Enhanced labelling will also be required for products used by children between the ages of 6 and 12.
