While snoring is a common condition that affects sleep, it can indicate a more serious sleep disorder that is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Snoring occurs when the pharyngeal airway is narrowed due to floppy tissues and muscles in the mouth and throat that are relaxed. When the air is unable to move freely, it results in the vibration of surrounding tissues and creates a sound, commonly known as snoring. When the airway is fully blocked, breathing is completely obstructed which leads to sleep apnoeic episodes. Left untreated, sleep apnea has been shown to be linked to higher risks of stroke, diabetes and other diseases.
