Snoring is a common problem that affect people at any age and sex. Although it occurs more frequently in men than in women and more likely in people who are overweight. Snoring has a tendency to worsen with age. Forty-five percent of adults snore occasionally.
Occasional snoring is usually more of a social and less of a medical problem. However, the regular snorer not only disrupts the sleep patterns of those close to them, but also disturb their own sleep. People who snore regularly whenever they sleep and are often tired after a night of what seems like quality rest. Medical assistance is usually needed for habitual snorers to get a good night’s sleep.
Snoring is often an indicator of a deeper problem and needs to be investigated and corrected before it leads to more serious problems .When a person snores on a regular basis risk factors increase and sleep apnea scores go up and the the brain is deprived of optimal oxygen levels for short periods of time .The problem is the short bursts of oxygen deprivation add up during the sleep period .
