Chronic snoring and sleep apnoea, is where your muscles of the upper airway collapse partially or completely. This in turn leads to narrowing or closure of the airway. The change in the aerodynamics of the air being breathed in and out leads to the sound of snoring. The sound causes disruption of not only your sleep but that of your bed partner and if loud enough those in adjacent rooms.
