Snoring is one of the most recurring problems people experience during sleep. It affects about ninety million Americans every year, be it persistent or sporadic snoring. Most people experience snoring at some point in their lives. If the snoring is constant, it could be an indicator of a more significant health problem.
Snoring can be a nuisance to those around you. It can also signify a more severe disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Numerous pauses categorize OSA, the breathing rate greater than ten seconds due to upper airway narrowing or collapsing. This lessens the oxygen levels in the blood, making the heart beat faster. As the snorer does not get sufficient rest, they may feel sleepy during the day, which affects their daily routine. OSA can lead to stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, motor vehicle accidents, and more if not treated.
