What Is Sleep Apnea vs. Snoring?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious condition where a person experiences lapses in breathing and shallow breaths while asleep.
When sleep apnea occurs, pauses in breathing may last anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or longer. If sleep apnea is not treated, it can lead to more serious conditions, such as heart attack and stroke.
SNORING IS USUALLY CAUSED BY A PERSON’S LIFESTYLE AND SLEEPING HABITS.
The most common cause of snoring is a blockage of flowing air through the passages located at the back of the mouth and the nose. This is caused by the throat becoming relaxed enough during sleep that it partially blocks the airway, resulting in vibrations that occur when breathing. Since the throat must be very relaxed for this to happen, snoring usually takes place when a person is in their deepest level of sleep. Although snoring can be annoying for the snorer and their partner, it is most often not a serious problem.
Treatments for Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Although snoring and sleep apnea are heavily correlated, they have very different treatment methods.
Making some slight changes can drastically reduce a person’s snoring habit. These changes include:
- Weight loss
- Cutting back on sleeping pills, antihistamines, and tranquilizers
- Reducing consumption of alcohol
- Sleeping on the side instead of the back
- Elevating the head while asleep
Obstructive sleep apnea is more serious, and medical intervention is often recommended. Some treatment methods for sleep apnea include:
- Mouth Guards
- CPAP Devices
- EPAP Therapy
