Abstract: Over 2 million children in the world suffer from sleeping disorders. The most common of these is Sleep Apnoea which may affect the child as early as on the first day of life. Sleep apnoea is a condition when the breathing rate of the patient lowers down drastically. The main problem that one faces is in the detection of the condition and hence delayed treatment. This paper describes the various types of Sleep Apnoea and a quick, effective and non-invasive method to detect the condition at hand.
