Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep as a result of the vibration of the structures in the back of the throat. It is a sound that can be soft but when loud and disruptive, it can cause a disrupted night’s sleep for the snorer and be most debilitating for your bed partner.

Although most people snore occasionally following a tiring day, or after an alcoholic drink or two, habitual snoring can affect one’s Quality of Life (QoL).Men are two to three times more likely to snore than women, but it affects all genders and ages, and gets worse as a person ages.

The two most common adverse health risks as a result of habitual snoring are daytime tiredness and the onset of cardiovascular disease.

Habitual snoring may also be the first sign of a more serious and potentially life threatening condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
