The main findings of the present study were that children with recurrent wheezing/asthma showed an increased Central Apnea Index than unaffected children. Recurrent wheezing/asthma can affect Central Apnea Index in these children. The selection of a sample of affected and unaffected children, balanced for age and Sleep Disordered Breathing severity, may confirm this observation. This data may suggest a dysfunction of the breathing control in the central nervous system during sleep. Systemic or central inflammation may take a role.

Abstract

The main findings of the present study were that children with recurrent wheezing/asthma showed an increased Central Apnea Index than unaffected children. Recurrent wheezing/asthma can affect Central Apnea Index in these children. The selection of a sample of affected and unaffected children, balanced for age and Sleep Disordered Breathing severity, may confirm this observation. This data may suggest a dysfunction of the breathing control in the central nervous system during sleep. Systemic or central inflammation may take a role.
