Snoring is a sound produced by the vibrations of the tissues in the nose and throat when breathing during sleep. Snoring is more common in men than women, and may increase with advancing age. Normally when we breathe, air flows in and out in a steady flow from the nose or mouth to the lungs. During sleep the area at the back of the throat, nose or mouth may narrow and when air passes through this narrow opening the surrounding tissues vibrate producing sounds of snoring.
Snoring is a sound produced due to the obstruction of breathing while sleeping. It is caused by vibrations that occur when tissues at the top of the airway strike each other. Snoring is commonly observed in older people and those who are overweight. It may be a sign of a more serious condition known as sleep apnoea.

Selecting the correct treatment for your Sleep Apnoea is dependent on a thorough understanding of your sleep and to identify your disorder.
