Snoring is caused from a decrease in air intake at night and is one of the symptoms of sleep apnea. In fact, a majority of people who snore will eventually develop sleep apnea. Therefore it is important to evaluate the causes of snoring and determine whether you have sleep apnea and if so to what degree. Getting enough oxygen at night is critical for children as they grow and develop and for adults to prevent breakdown of tissues over time.If you snore or know someone who does, share this information with them. The life you save may not just be your own.
