Are you getting quality sleep?
Snoring usually occurs when you relax, which causes your lower jaw and tongue to drop against the back of your throat, constricting your airway and reducing your oxygen. To combat this, your breathing intensifies, causing the soft tissues at the back of your throat to vibrate.
But, for more than 22 million Americans, their breathing can stop repeatedly during sleep – sometimes hundreds of times per night. More than half of their sleep time is oxygen-deprived. They wake up unrefreshed and can fall asleep during the day, sometimes even behind the wheel. For them, it’s not “just” snoring. They suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – and up to 80% of those with mild to moderate OSA remain undiagnosed.
