Pediatric Screening Tool Validation for OSA Fund Details » Donate Online
This fund helps support the pilot study engineered by Dr. Steven Olmos, Dr. Judy Owens, and Dr. Rakesh Bhattacherjee which will streamline the diagnosis of childhood obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)- a disease that disproportionately affects minority populations. Although OSA wasn't officially recognized in children until the 1970s, an estimated 2.25 million children have OSA. OSA can lead to lasting issues with both cardiovascular and metabolic functions. By homogenizing the process of identification and diagnosis, many more children will receive the help they need.
