Mood Disorders in Teens and Sleep Apnea
July 6, 2012
A number of recent studies have reported on teens and behavior problems. This Harvard study showed 2/3 of teens engaged in violent behavior that included property damage. They also showed that one in 12 teens met the official criteria for Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED). Another study showed that teens with obstructive sleep apnea had shorter attention spans and aggressive behavior. I’m betting that there’s a significant overlap between theses two groups. What do you think?
