Snoring is a very common condition that can have significant impacts on daily activity if it’s associated with obstructive sleep apnea. This may lead to tiredness during the day, loss of concentration at work or study, affects mood and driving, and severe cases may cause high blood pressure and heart problems.
Snoring is caused by partial obstruction of the airways during sleep. Sleep apnea is caused by complete obstruction of the airway and you stop breathing when asleep. This usually means the airway has collapsed during breathing despite respiratory efforts and until the brain wakes up there is no air entry and no oxygenation to tissues.
