Helping a child with Down Syndrome tolerate the C-Pap mask


#1

I’m working with a family who has a child, age 10, who has Down Syndrome and also has obstructive sleep apnea. He doesn’t tolerate the C-Pap mask and therefore hasn’t been using it. Are there resources the family can turn to that can help them with getting the child to tolerate the mask so he can use it effectively?

Any resources, especially in Washington State would be appreciated.

@happyheather1 - Is it possible for the patient to travel to Seattle?

They are willing to travel to Seattle without a doubt if there is something there for them.
