Snoring is the sound of partially obstructed breathing during sleep. Snoring can certainly be a sign of a more serious medical condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). When OSA occurs, the tongue and soft palate collapse onto the back of the throat and completely block the airway which restricts the flow of oxygen and causes breathing interuptions. These pauses can last from seconds to minutes and can occur numerous times within an hour. This results in fragmented sleep and lowered levels of oxygen in the blood. The airway obstruction lasts until the brain partially awakens the sleeper and they unconsciously awaken for a gasp of air. Normal breathing eventually resumes, often with loud snoring. The awakening and oxygen deprivation can trigger health problems such as chronic sleepness and drowsiness, daytime fatigue, trouble concentrating, depression, early on-set of Alzheimer’s, lowered metabolism and testosterone levels, sudden cardiac death and cancer.
