Topic Suggestion Description

Date submitted: February 27, 2014

Briefly describe a specific question, or set of related questions, about a health care test or treatment that this program should consider.
The relationship and correlation to ADD/ADHD in children to children's sleep apnea

Importance

Describe why this topic is important.
Many people don't know what the relationship is, as sleep apnea is being more readily diagnosed and understood

Potential Impact

How will an answer to your research question be used or help inform decisions for you or your group?
Many people in my family have sleep apnea. My son now tosses and turns at night and also likely has sleep apnea, though he is only 3 years old. Many parents want to know more. I think more publically available research information would be truly helpful.
