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.

OSA can be dangerous, causing not only sleepiness during the day but also various other serious diseases. This form of respiratory arrest lasts at least 10 seconds (or longer), before the patient resumes breathing in an explosion-like and noise generating event.

The answers will indicate whether the patient should be treated by means of an Oral Appliance or have a polysomnograph (PSG) to test for apnea and its severity.
