Adenotonsillectomies are one of the most common childhood surgeries and are first-line treatment to correct childhood obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). This is a study comparing patients with and without OSA looking at the length of stay following adenotonsillectomy and the factors affecting length of stay.

Time Perspective: Prospective
||Factors That Increase Length of Stay After Outpatient Surgery of 3-6 Year Olds With OSAS Symptoms Versus Without OSAS Symptoms After Adenotonsillectomy
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Length of stay (LOS) [ Time Frame: 1 Day (Day of Surgery) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Cause of increased Length of stay (LOS) [ Time Frame: 1 Day (Day of Surgery) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
