​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 those below 18 years old.

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