​An estimated 20% of the children in Singapore suffer from asthma. In addition, statistics show that 20% of normal children snore occasionally and 7% to 10% have habitual snoring. Most children who snore are healthy, but about one per cent of them may snore due to sleep and/or breathing problems. The risk is higher if they have large tonsils and adenoids, conditions affecting the central nervous system and/or muscle, anatomical abnormality of the jaw or face, a family history of sleep or breathing problems, or are obese.

A key referral centre in Singapore for breathing and sleep-related disorders, our Respiratory Medicine Service cares for a large number of children ranging from newborns to 16-year-olds.

We also partner family physicians and paediatricians to facilitate the medical care and management of our patients at community level.
