  2. 2. Snoring… • Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep. Snoring affects 90 million Americans, 35 million on a regular basis • Snoring is the sound that a partially obstructed airway makes. • As the patient falls asleep the muscles of the airway relax, the tongue falls backward and the airway narrows. As air passes through the narrow airway the tissues vibrate which makes the characteristic sound of snoring. The narrower the airway becomes the greater the vibration and the louder the snoring.
