What is Snoring?

Snoring is a common condition which occurs when an obstruction in the upper airway vibrates and causes a noise to be emitted during sleep.

While snoring can range from a mild to severe problem, it can also affect sleep quality and lead to a range of negative health outcomes.

If you sleep alone, you may not realise when snoring disrupts your sleep. Snoring can be diagnosed in a comprehensive sleep study and treated with a combination of lifestyle risk factor changes and medical devices.

While a snoring noise can be made while awake, it is more commonly known as a sleep condition.

Snoring occurs more commonly when resting on the back, as it can allow the upper airway to fall and block airflow to the lungs.
