What are some conditions, or risk factors, that make it more likely for my child to have obstructive sleep apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is most common in children ranging in age between 2 and 4 years due to large tonsils and adenoids and relatively small upper airways. Other risk factors for OSA include obesity, certain congenital conditions like Down syndrome that affect facial structure, and other medical conditions that involve muscle disease and weakness.
