Screening for SDB and Sleep Disorders in School-Aged Chidren by School Nurses

Can school nurses effectively screen for SDB and Sleep Disorders in school aged children? Who else in the school setting could provide such screening? Should such screening be limited to "at risk" children who display identified markers, or be open to all children? What is the role of teachers to "identify" children in need of such screening?


What role will such screening serve to mitigate learning, behavioral, developmental and health problems in children?


Hearing, vision and dental screening for young school children may be used as model programming.
