Mark is generally tired and sometimes falls asleep during the day. He sometimes wakes his partner and himself during the night with a loud snore or snort. He is likely to have sleep apnoea - a respiratory condition related to snoring that causes interrupted breathing during sleep.
The most common form of sleep apnoea, Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is when airflow during sleep is prevented from entering the lungs by a temporary obstruction. The obstruction is because of a lack of muscle one in the upper airway which causes the airway to collapse. Alternatively, the soft palate at the back of the throat may partially or fully close the airway.
What can help Mark?
If you experience any of these symptoms it is recommended that you consult your doctor immediately. Mark could try the Snoreeze Oral Device. Its adjustable design gently positions the jaw in a forward position to clear the obstructed airway and provide effective relief.
