SNORING CAN BE DEADLY!

Apr 1, 2008
There are various different reasons, which is why a person will snore as they sleep at night. However, if the problem is left untreated this may well lead to a person suffering from other health issues because of it, one of these being sleep apnea. Yet although a snoring is a problem for the person suffering from it, it can also be a problem for those who they live with as well.

When a person snores, they make very loud harsh hoarse breathing sound as they inhale and exhale when they are sleeping. This noise is made because the air that they breathe in and out will cause the tissue in the upper part of their nose and throat to vibrate. The problem is that many people who snore do not realize that they are doing so as it is a completely involuntary action over which they have no control.

Generally, it is the palate, along with the uvula and tonsils, which are to be found in a person's upper airway, are the items that are causing the snoring as they obstruct it. There are a number of different causes as to why a person will snore and below we take a look at what some of these are.

1. The tone of the muscles in their tongue and throat is poor and so when they go to sleep at night the tongue is able to flop backwards in their throat, and end up causing an obstruction to their airway.

2. Some people's snoring may be caused because they are overweight and there is a build up of too much tissue in the throat, which restricts the movement of air through it.

3. For some people their snoring could be caused because either or both of the palate and uvula are too soft. When these are too soft then again they will help to obstruct the airway and so restrict the movement of air through it as a person breathes.

4. Another reason for why certain people may snore as they sleep at night is because their nasal passages are obstructed. In many cases this will be because there is a build up of mucus in them and so will restrict the flow of air through them as a person breathes when they sleep at night.

If you are someone whose snoring is being caused by one of the above mentioned there are devices and remedies that one can now use to help solve the problem. Some people have found that applying a nasal strip prior to going to bed is effective. Whilst others have found that using, a stop snoring spray or a device for placing in the mouth is effective for them. But for those whose condition may become severe then they may find that the only alternative is to undergo surgery such as Somnoplasty to really find a cure to their snoring problems.
