    Sleep Apnoea
    Snoring is far more common than people realise, millions of people of all ages and both sexes are affected, although it is true that men snore more than women. Snoring is caused by the collapse of the upper airway normally maintained by muscle tone. Vibration in this segment will cause snoring.
    In more serious cases where the airway collapses, breathing is stopped or obstructed, resulting in possible damage to your health as the level of oxygen in the blood is reduced. This is known as "obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome" which leaves an individual feeling unrested in the morning and often means that they feel drowsy or fall asleep during the daytime.

    Snoring assessments include an initial consultation with a specialist, and a sleep study, involving an overnight stay in hospital for diagnosis. The sleep study assists the consultant by measuring the severity of snoring, frequency and severity of apnoeas and associated sleep disturbance.

    There are a number of treatments available to help prevent or cure snoring.
