Do not ignore the warning signs!
If you or your partner snores it is important that you read the information contained on this page very carefully.
Snoring can have a serious effect on the health of the sufferer and can also be a sign of the potential life threatening condition Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Make sense of Snoring
Snoring is often regarded as little more than a joke or nuisance, however Snoring affects millions of people in the UK and research has shown just how devastating Snoring can be, not only to the health of the snorer, but on the lives of the people around them.
Snoring occurs when the air does not flow smoothly through the nose and throat passages, the soft tissue at the back of the throat vibrates causing a sound that we all know as Snoring.
This vibration increases when the body breathes faster to compensate for the slight blockage in the airway that the soft tissue causes.
Is Snoring killing you?
Snoring can be a serious risk to your health and simple snoring alone can increase the risk of a stroke. Cardiovascular disease is also becoming increasingly linked with Snoring.
People who snore severely can also have problems with breathing during sleep and often wake gasping for breath after short periods of not breathing at all.
This happens when the airway at the back of the throat becomes blocked and a sharp intake of breath happens as the body fights for more oxygen.
Snoring can be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
The condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea or OSA is thought to affect 1 in 15 snorers. Many snorers are unaware that they have this condition, but are increasingly aware of the effects. Loud habitual Snoring, excess daytime sleepiness, your partner telling you that you stop breathing during the night, waking up feeling that you did not really sleep at all, poor concentration, irritability and or depression, these are all effects of OSA, which left untreated can be potentially fatal.
