Numerous studies in the past 10 years have reported on the neurocognitive sequalae of pediatric Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). Variations in criteria used to define SDB in conjunction with the wide variety of neuropsychological measures selected to evaluate cognitive consequences of SDB have resulted in discrepancies within the literature. This review summarizes the extant literature regarding cognitive effects of pediatric SDB across domains of global intelligence, attention, executive function, memory, language, and visuospatial ability. This review also addresses the proposed etiology underlying neurocognitive consequences of pediatric SDB. The differences in findings across the literature are highlighted and discussed throughout.
