Data from 2 studies showed serious concern for infants and children with breathing problems during sleep. A study conducted by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development found that 1-year-olds with sleep apnea or slow heart rate while sleeping scored lower on mental development tests, compared with other children the same age.
