Tutor description

Mutations of the PHOX 2B homeobox gene are associated with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS). In patients with CCHS, the autonomous nervous system fails to generate adequate ventilation during sleep. This results in sleep-related ventilator dependency, from infancy and throughout life. In addition, CCHS patients lack ventilatory and perceptual chemosensitivity: they do not feel changes in blood oxygenation.
