When you hear the rumbling-motorcycle like sound,
you probably know how difficult life is if someone near you snores
Snoring occurs as the person’s airway is obstructed by relaxation of tongue and throat muscles
This relaxation of muscles is a common, but in some, blockage of naso-pharyngeal region occurs leading to a whistling sound known as Snoring.
The blockage of airway reduces the amount of oxygen reaching in various parts of our body.
In some cases, throat muscles relax and completely block the airway leading to a potentially serious and deadly condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). If that happens, breathing completely stops and creates a hypoxic shock. This awakens the person abruptly which is accompanied by choking or gasping for air. In most cases these episodes terrifies the person sleeping near the patient.
Lethargy & Daytime Sleepiness
