Snoring is a widespread disease. In different stages of life it affects over 50% of all people. In addition to a disturbed sleep architecture with morning tiredness, headaches and loss of performance, it is a stress test for all those involved, especially in relationships.
Snoring is often a symptom of a serious illness, the sleep apnoea syndrome. In sleep apnoea syndrome, the upper respiratory tract is completely or partially blocked with a lack of blood supply throughout the body and frequent waking reactions. A restful sleep is not possible, untreated the occurrence of serious diseases of the cardiovascular system is promoted.
Snoring is promoted by various anatomical and functional factors. In various studies the palate (velopharyngeal area) has been identified as the main source of snoring sounds, with collapse or excess tissue in the area of the base of the tongue (hypopharyngeal segment) being proven in the second place.
Causes of snoring:
- Excessive length and increased volume of the soft palate and uvula
