Parents of London preschoolers with sickle cell anemia (SCA; n = 22), matched controls (n = 24), and unselected typically developing (n = 142) preschoolers completed sleep questionnaires. Preschoolers with SCA had significantly more sleep problems when compared to matched controls and the larger population. Snoring occurred at least one to two nights a week for 79% of the SCA group. This is compared with 25% of matched controls and 33% of larger population. Randomized controlled trials to improve sleep in young children with SCA already at-risk for cognitive dysfunction should be considered.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Pediatric Blood and Cancer||Volume:||64||Issue:||6||Start page:||e26337||Copyright (published version):||2016 Wiley Periodicals Inc.||Keywords:||Early intervention; Obstructive sleep apnea; Sickle cell disease; Sleep; Sleep disordered breathing; Snoring||DOI:||10.1002/pbc.26337||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
