Show Notes:

Airway First podcast, children's airway issues


Accomplished, by Karese Laguerre

Sleep disordered breathing is one of, if not the, most common chronic health conditions in childhood. Yet most parents have never heard of it, and many health practitioners do not know about it either. This is a tragedy as sleep disordered breathing has a major impact on the health of children. In this book, I am going to take you on the journey from diagnosis to treatment. I want the best for your child- this book is written to help you make the most of my 30 years of experience managing this condition.
