||What Happens When You Snore?
Snoring is when a sleeping person emits loud, hoarse or harsh sounds during sleep.
Snoring may develop into Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). People that snore have a higher than
average chance of developing symptoms of major ailments like heart diseases and high blood
pressure especially if they have the major risk factors; excessive body weight, smoking and high
There may be several reasons for snoring.
It mostly occurs when the airflow from your nose or mouth to the lungs become turbulent because of
narrowing in your nose, mouth or throat which causes air in the tissues of the airway to vibrate.
Too much relaxation of your throat muscles may cause narrowing in the airway, disturbing the
airflow and vibrating the soft palate and uvula. The soft palate and uvula can knock the back of the
throat and produce sounds.
When you are awake, the throat muscles hold the tissues in the back of the mouth in place so
snoring does not occur when you are awake. The state of wakefulness is also accompanied by
restoration of the muscle tone which makes it almost impossible to snore while you are awake. (The
exception is when someone tries to create the sound of snoring.)
Snoring can severely affect the quality of sleep. The louder the snoring, the worse your sleep
You can do a few things to stop snoring.
Weight plays a big role. Try to lose weight if you are overweight.
Avoid taking alcohol and other sedatives at bedtime.
Different people have different sleeping postures. Experiment a little and find one that is both
comfortable and prevents you from snoring. You might find that a simple change in posture is all
that is required.
Who Gets Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea can occur in anybody, in any age group, and of any sex.
However, occurrence of any type of sleep apnea has been more prevalent in the following:
More middle-aged men than middle-aged women suffer from sleep apnea. Some middle-aged
women have it during menopause and some women start snoring during pregnancy. It is thought
that this might cause the disorder later.
Overweight people may develop Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The risk is higher if you are gaining
weight rather than if you maintain a stable body weight. Many obese people suffer from this disorder.
Loud snorers develop sleep apnea.
The normal preconception is that sleep apnea occurs only in middle-aged and elderly persons. This
is not true and sleep apnea can occur in toddlers. Infant Sleep Apnea occurs when the baby is
unable to breathe while sleeping for around ten to twenty seconds or more due to lack of regular
airflow through mouth and nose. If the apnea is due to blockages in airways, it is obstructive
sleep apnea. However, if there is no normal breathing, it may be a central nervous system problem.
Normally, sleep apnea in infants begins at thirty-seven weeks or roughly nine months. When such a
baby suffers breathing problems in sleep for no apparent reason, it is ‘Apnea of Infancy’. 'Apnea of
Prematurity' is when the baby is younger than nine months and suffers breathing problems.
What are the Effects of Sleep Apnea?
When you have sleep apnea, no oxygen enters your lungs during the episode. Hence, carbon
dioxide levels in your body rise high and you awaken gasping for breath due to compensatory
drives from your brain.
If you are unable to sleep well at night, or do not feel fresh in the morning, wake up with headaches,
and feel sleepy throughout whole day then the possibility of sleep apnea should be checked.
If you have undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea and undergo any surgery, you are at high risk of
not breathing - anesthesia and other pain relievers could be harmful or even fatal. They tighten
your already constricted airways and affect your lungs and heart.
Your overall body mechanism suffers.
You may not realize that you wake many times during the night because of your snoring and
You may suffer daytime symptoms like sleepiness, tiredness and lethargy.
Short term memory is affected and you may make more mistakes.
Sleep apnea can be very disabling, causing you to fall asleep while driving, watching television or
even while talking.
Some people become irritable and have behavioral changes that end with a visit to the psychiatrist.
Others think it is related to age and think no more about it.
A decrease in sexual drive is common too.
You run greater risks of high blood pressure with resultant heart attacks and strokes.
Sleep apnea was thought to be associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in babies but the
association is not well defined.
Young children with sleep apnea disorder show stunted growth. They lack concentration, are
restless and hyperactive at times.
A major effect of sleep apnea is increase in body weight and obesity. You put on more fat and are
prone to many other syndromes like Prader-Willi syndrome, Marfan syndrome and hypothyroidism.
Obstructive sleep apnea puts pressure on the esophagus which affects normal functioning of your
digestive system, so you experience gastroesophageal reflux and feel some heartburn.
Many women suffer from menstrual problems due to their sleep apnea disorders.
|Often you have no idea that you have any of these sleep disorders until your partner hears your
loud snoring or experience some of the other symptoms which can actually be quite frightening.
You may experience:
Gasping for breath
Loud pauses in breathing
Excessive sleepiness during daytime hours
Lack of concentration
Excessive night time perspiration
Increase in blood pressure
Lack of mental acuity
