Sleeping soundly

Acute snoring can severely impact on normal sleeping patterns of both the patient and sleeping partner, causing exhaustion and a lowered immune system. Over an extended period of time, serious snorers may also develop more severe conditions such as sleep apnea. Emotionally, snoring can affect the relationship that snorers have with those around them. Many partners of snorers become resentful due to the fact that they are deprived of sleep on an ongoing basis.
