Help with Snoring – Learning How Snoring Impacts Sleep

Snoring causes sleep loss for the snorer and their sleep partner. The snorer may wake numerous times during the night --either from their own snoring or from the attempts of the bed partner to stop the loud and disruptive sound. Without help with snoring this frustrating cycle can erode sleep patterns and negatively impact health and relationships.

If the snoring is a result of sleep apnea, your sleep is disrupted because your snoring has caused you to stop breathing momentarily. When you stop breathing, your body wakes up. This may happen so quickly that you aren’t even aware of it. This process may happen hundreds of times per night, severely impacting the quality of your sleep.

The effects of sleep deprivation are:

  •     Daytime sleepiness
  •     Poor mental and emotional health
  •     A negative mood
  •     Low energy
  •     Decreased productivity
  •     Slower reaction time
