Highlights In This Issue JAMA Otolaryngology– February 2015 Volume 141, Number 2 Head & Neck Surgery Pages 97-196 Research Clinical Review & Education PATHOLOGY Public Insurance and Pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing 106 Children with low socioeconomic status have increased risk for sleep-disordered breath- ing (SDB). Boss and associates evaluated 136 children for SDB in a 3-week period, 62 with public insurance. A sleep study was recommended for approximately half the children in each insurance category. After the recommendation, more privately insured than public- ly insured patients were lost to follow-up. Both the performance of the sleep study and the adenotonsillectomy took longer to perform in the publicly insured group. The authors concluded that requiring sleep studies may be a deterrent for the care of children with SDB, especially those with public assistance. 181 What is your diagnosis? Clinical Parameters Associated With OSA Severity 130 Mitchell and associates evaluated 453 children from the Childhood Adenotonsillectomy RADIOLOGY (CHAT) Study between 5 and 10 years old who had sleep study–diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and were candidates for adenotonsillectomy. They found that African American race, obesity, and Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire total score were associated with increased OSA severity.
