Manipal Hospitals conducted a Workshop on Pediatric Sleep
News Desk, News Nation 360: The second-largest healthcare provider in the country Manipal Hospitals in association with the Indian Academy of Pediatrics National Respiratory Chapter, conducted a workshop on Pediatric Sleep at Salt Lake, Kolkata. Though we spend about 1/3rd of our lifetime sleeping, the workshop was designed to raise awareness about sleep problems in children among Pediatricians. Sleep deprivation in children has recently become a widespread issue. Many young children exhibit indicators of restless sleep, snoring, difficulties waking up in the morning, and lack of attention in school, leading to deterioration in academic performance. Caffeine consumption, as well as addiction to mobile phones and computers, have all contributed to children's sleep disruption. However, there are additional issues, such as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), which causes nasal obstruction, and behavioural insomnia, in which youngsters exhibit signs of restlessness. Dr Pallab Chatterjee, Consultant at Paediatric Manipal Hospital stated that the session was attended by a diverse group of doctors, including
paediatricians and ENT specialists from all across the country, and the faculty comprised of Pediatric Sleep specialists from across the globe, including Australia and Singapore. During the programme, participants gained insight into how to approach the challenge. It is critical to raise awareness about sophisticated technology to give complete illness care. The session would alter the practice dimension and offer up new possibilities for excellent medical practises. According to Arindam Banerjee, Hospital Director, Manipal Hospital, Salt Lake, Kolkata, they have taken such initiatives in the past and they aim to keep working for the benefit of the society. Their qualified team of doctors and hospital staff always encourage such awareness sessions and they look forward to more participants to benefit from the same.
