According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, up to 4 percent of children have obstructive sleep apnea. Some children are as young as 2 years old when they start struggling with it. Adam Amdur, 41 believes that he's had OSA all his life but was only diagnosed at age 35. After his diagnosis he learned that children can inherit certain facial features that put them at risk for sleep apnea. For example, a large overbite, a recessed chin, or large tonsils are only some of the features that indicate if a child is at possible risk.
