Some Information About Snoring
Snoring can be hazardous to your health. Snoring is actually incomplete obstruction of the upper airway. Many snorers have complete obstruction (apnea) periodically throughout the night. When this occurs oxygen in the blood falls, the heart can beat irregularly and sleeping is interrupted. Untreated sleep apnea can cause debilitating sleepiness, increased chance of driving accidents and may lead to health problems including heart failure. If you suspect sleep apnea, contact your physician or the Queen's Sleep Laboratory.
