Study objectives To assess cardiovascular control during sleep in children with sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and the effect of adenotonsillectomy in comparison to healthy non-snoring children. Methods Cardiorespiratory signals obtained from overnight polysomnographic recordings (PSG) of 28 children with SDB and 34 healthy non-snoring children...
