Snoring

Snoring happens when air does not move freely through your nose and throat during sleep. The surrounding tissues vibrate, which produces that familiar snoring sound.

 

Snoring could indicate sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder where your breathing is briefly interrupted many times each night.

Not everyone that snores has sleep apnea, but if you are also suffering from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day, it could be an indication of sleep apnea or other sleep-related breathing problem.

If you or your sleep partner have noticed any of the following symptoms. we recommend visiting your doctor for advice;

  • Snoring loudly and/or tired during the day.
  • Stopping breathing, gasping, or choking multiple times during sleep.
  • Falling asleep at inappropriate times, such as at the traffic lights whilst driving.  

If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). the gold standard for treatment is CPAP Therapy.

 

Will a CPAP Machine stop my snoring?

Yes!

CPAP therapy is designed to keep your upper airway open during sleep. One of the great benefits is no snoring and a happier bed partner.
