Sleep Apnoea

Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) which is a prevalent condition with significant comorbidities associated with it.  During sleep,  the walls of your upper airway narrow and disrupt your normal breathing pattern. This can lead to brain microarousals and lack of oxygenation in the body systems. Not all snorers have OSA, but all apnoeacs are snorers.  If your snoring highlights any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication that you should seek further evaluation from a professional.

Sadly, OSA can have a profound effect on your quality of life; regular interrupted sleep can lead to increased tiredness throughout the day and increases the risk of developing other medical conditions.
