Snoring - What it is

Snoring

Many people snore but only some snorers have obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Studies have shown that approximately 24% of the local population are loud habitual snorers.

OSA is a potentially serious disorder associated with snoring, in which one’s breathing is interrupted during sleep resulting in a drop in oxygen levels in the body. This causes the individual to awaken many times during the night and experience excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS).
