Snoring is defined as breathing during sleep with hoarse noises. It causes a vibration of the soft palate and uvula.

This noise is usually produced when a person is breathing in. (that thing that hangs down in the back of the throat). All people who snore have a block of the upper airway.

Simple snoring is noisy breathing during sleep or stopping of breath.

Most of us have been exposed to a person who really snores loudly. When an individual snores so loudly that it disturbs others, obstructive sleep apnea is usually the cause. Sleep apnea is dangerous and needs to be diagnosed and treated. Simple snoring may be improved by sleeping on the side rather than stomach or back, by losing weight or by refraining from use of alcohol and/or sedatives. There are also oral devices that may help reduce snoring.

The partner or roommate of a person who snores may find it easier to sleep with a white noise machine in the room or by using the under-pillow speaker to drown out the snoring.
