Abstract: 
One of the obstructive complications of Walderyer"s ring hypertrophy is changing in Arterial 02 saturation, which could result in serious complications such as corpulmonal and hypertension and even sudden infant death syndrome. Because this complication is common we decided to study it. In this Analytic cohort study forty patients who were admitted for Adenotonsillectomy in Mashhad University hospitals at ENT Departments were selected, and their changing 02 saturation studies were recorded with pulseoxymeter along the one-hour normal sleep. This change was compared with a control group. The result shows that there is a significant difference between the two groups.
