Snoring is a big problem for some people and their partners. The partner is often the person who suffers most due to the disturbed night’s sleep they get and all the tiredness and frustration this causes. This can lead to irritability and sometimes can lead to the complete breakdown of relationships. The snorer can also suffer a less than ideal restful night as they may wake themselves from snoring or from temporarily stopping breathing (known as sleep apnoea). A sharp dig in the ribs from their partner is also not good for a good night’s sleep.
Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. This can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability. In the long term, this problem can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.
Sleep apnoea also known as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is a more serious complication. This can result in the patient having a poor-quality sleep making them tired and not able to function properly the next day, especially if the process is repeated night after night.
With Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) an increase in weight or a reduction in muscle tone can trigger the change from a partially blocked airway to a completely blocked airway. It is common for the sufferer to be completely unaware of the disorder, and remain undiagnosed for several years. OSA has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.
