Snag Some Sleep, Take Care of Your Snoring
Silver Cross Sleep Disorders Center shares hidden health risks of snoring and how to treat it on June 20
New Lenox, IL (June 14, 2012)— Millions of Americans lose sleep each night due to the loud and persistent snoring from themselves or from their partner. “You snore when the flow of air from your mouth or nose to your lungs makes the tissues of your throat vibrate when you sleep. This creates a loud, raspy noise which can make it hard for you and your partner to get a good night’s sleep,” says Dr. Philip Leung, board certified pulmonologist. If snoring keeps you or your bed partner from getting a good night’s rest, or if one or both of you feel tired during the day, then snoring isn't just annoying, but could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that can have serious health consequences. So how do you know when you are at risk?
