Snoring + Apnea
Sleep apnea is a debilitating disorder that is characterized by one or more pauses in breathing while sleeping. These pauses vary in duration from a few seconds to a few minutes and cause restless sleep, loud snoring and tiredness throughout the day. The most common is obstructive sleep apnea which is due to a collapsed or blocked airway. Snoring can be deeply disruptive to not only the affected party but also their partner. While certain medical conditions must first be ruled out, many people snore due to the shape of their palate and the back of the throat.
