Key facts about snoring

Snoring can have a disruptive effect on your patients’ lives. They’re often not the first to realise they have a problem: rather, it’s their bed partner who complains.

Why do some patients snore?

Both snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) have a common origin: the obstruction of the upper airway caused by the relaxation of muscles in the neck.
