Traditionally a snoring accompanied sleep has been considered to be a deep restful sleep. But scientific facts now have revealed that snoring is injurious to health. This condition is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea, occurring during sleep due to obstruction while breathing. Did you know that Apnea creates a period of cessation or inability to breathe for more than 10 seconds in some cases? A person suffering from OSA will be making an effort to breathe, but the obstruction blocks the airway.
It is a result of upper airway resistance caused by its unnatural collapse. A dynamic obstruction; as the natural tone or elasticity of pharyngeal muscles is lost at sleep. As a first step for correcting this defect, the level of obstruction needs to be assessed in a professionally monitored sleep lab.
