In this fourth module of the series we define and describe the common modalities used to treat sleep disordered breathing in the pediatric patient. Indications, contraindications, and precautions for each modality of treatment are outlined, along with the appropriate interfaces for pediatric therapies. Troubleshooting methods for mask leaks, excessive pressure on the face, and humidification are described, and tips for achieving successful therapy in the pediatric patient are provided. Treatment goals and patient follow-up guidelines for each type of therapy, as defined by best practices and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine Task Force, are also provided. This module provides a thorough review of treatment options for sleep related breathing disorders in the pediatric patient.
