One on of the main causes of snoring is the partial blockage of the airway during sleep, during your sleep the muscles of the neck relax. The relaxation of the soft tissue in the upper throat then vibrates, which produces the sound we know as snoring.

“Snoring is more than just a social problem”.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, OSA, is when a person stops breathing for a short while. These breathing interruptions, known as “Sleep Apnoea” occur when the airway narrows so much that it closes.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea to simple snoring, simple snoring is the vibration of the soft tissue in the throat caused by a partial closure of the airway, whereas OSA is caused by the complete closure of the airway. The closure of the airway causes breathing to stop, which in turn reduces the oxygen level in the blood. The brain reacts by releasing adrenalin, which causes a partial wakening of the snorer. The snorer will often not be aware of this partial wakening during the night. Many sufferers have excessive daytime sleepiness, which is bad enough in itself but often they are unable to concentrate, experience marital disharmony and they fall asleep at times when they don’t want to be asleep.
