Most people think of snoring as nothing more than a nuisance to roommates or bed partners. Loud and persistent snoring, however, can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep disordered breathing occurs when the tongue and soft palate collapse onto the back of the throat. This blocks the upper airway – causing you to hold your breath. Your body will then wake you up so you can resume breathing. This can reoccur hundreds of times in a single night.
