How does snoring differ from sleep apnea? Snoring occurs when there is a blockage of the airway. This takes place during sleep since the area around the jaw relaxes and slacks blocking the airways. As the physical body stresses on pressing the air via, the uvula and soft palate will certainly then shake and induces the snoring sound. If I snore, does it mean I have sleep apnea? Statistics shows that from 80 million folks that snore in North America, around 12 million of them have a condition called sleep apnea. Should there be an interest in these numbers? Sleep apnea is a significant issue. Individuals with severe sleep apnea might stop breathing up to ONE HUNDRED times within an hr while sleeping. I will go over some of the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and what you can do about it and various factors of snoring. Statistics shows out of 80 million people that snore in North America, around 12 million of them have a condition called sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a serious matter and it is life threatening.
