Figure 1 The A/N ratios of involved subjects at different ages. (A) In the control group of healthy children, the data showed that A/N ratios were 0.54 at approximately age 2, increased to 0.60 at approximately age 5, and then started to decrease to 0.43 at approximately age 15. In the ATH/OSA group, A/N ratios were large irrespective of age. Data are presented as the meanĀ±SD. (B) Curve fitting (control group) and (C) line fitting (ATH/OSA group) for the associations of A/N ratios with age. In the control group, R2=0.662 and P=0.00 by ANOVA. In the ATH/OSA group, R2=0.012 and P=0.523, by ANOVA. By SPSS V.26 (IBM SPSS, Armonk, NY, USA).
