Snoring: A Common Sleep Disorder


Sleep consumes as much as one-third or more of the average human's life. Even if people hope for restful sleep, many types of sleep disorder reduce the quality and quantity of sleep. Snoring is the most common cause of sleep disorder that affects people.

Snoring is divided into two categories: Obstructive sleep apnea and Primary snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea: Loud, excessive snoring, interrupted by breathing stoppages and gasping for breath. Other symptoms include excessive sleepiness in the daytime and obesity. Also, it was found that is more common in male.

Primary Snoring: is very common and is unrelated to apneic episodes. Primary snoring may be an early predictor for people who will eventually develop obstructive sleep apnea. This progression is more likely in people at ages 35-40 and who undergo a weight gain.

Primary snoring is characterized by loud noises that disturb the sleeper or sleep partners and can be caused by different types of problems: anatomic - if the oropharynx is smaller or more narrow than normal, a deviated nasal septum, hypertrophy of the tonsils and/or adenoids, temporary or permanent enlargement of the nasal turbinate (nasal obstruction), mandibular abnormalities, or tongue enlargement and smoking.

Medical consequences: The obstructive sleep apnea should always be checked by a physician. The fact that you won't receive the proper amount of air will lead in time to serious diseases. Not enough air means poor blood and brain oxygenation. Even primary snoring can signal other morbid conditions. Nocturnal asthma may be a cause of snoring and snoring may be a trigger for nocturnal asthma. The day time tiredness and sleepiness is only a residual effect of snoring. Snoring often coexists with hypertension, heart disease, asthma and brain ischemia.

Smoking - Cigarette smoking has been demonstrated to be the cause of numerous medical problems, including snoring. The cause is the negative effect of smoking on mucociliary clearance reducing the ciliary mobility, increasing the upper airway blockages and allowing mucus to collect. This effect can even occur through exposure to second-hand smoke.

Nasal Obstruction - a normal breathe through the nose while sleeping will not cause snoring. When a nasal obstruction appears that we must breathe through the mouth, increasing the risk of snoring. Opening the airway passages through the upper respiratory tract is one solution to snoring.

Depending on your snoring pattern, Salin air salinizer could be a real help to prevent and reduce snoring. The fact that the inhaled saline has bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti inflammatory properties leads to reducing inflammation in the mucosa lining the airway passages, opening and widening the airway. Will restore the normal transport of mucus and unclog the blockages absorbing the edema of the nasal mucosa and the oropharynx and the soft palate, causing nasal obstruction and snoring. Widening the airway passage in the nose and the tubes of the sinuses will also improve the sinuses drainage and will reduce snoring.

However, if a person seems to gasp for breath during sleep, the snoring may be caused by obstructive sleep apnea and this is a serious medical condition and he/she should see a doctor.

Thinking now about pets, they are part of our life, day and night, including their problems. A dog snoring pattern is very much the same as ours and looking for a snoring help, a snoring device or a home remedy for snoring dog is not a problem anymore. As your pet could have also asthma or snoring the salinized air will work great also for him.
