Sleep Disorder: Snoring
Incidence and Prevalence
Conventional Treatment

Magnetic Products

Loud and often hoarse breathing sound that occurs during sleep. Snoring is caused by some obstruction to the flow of air through the mouth and nose. The sounds of snoring are the result of the vibration of the soft palate in the mouth.

It is more prevalent among men and those that are overweight

There are a number of factors that can lead to obstruction of the airway such as:
Nasal passages maybe partly blocked as a result of allergies, sinus infections, deviation of the septum, or nasal polyps.
The muscle tone of the throat and tongue may be poor and overly relaxed, causing them to fall back thus blocking the airway.
Sizable throat tissue is often found with people who are overweight. Children with tonsillitis present with enlarged adenoids and tonsils causing them to snore.
Structural changes in the mouth and throat may be the cause of snoring. A soft and thick soft palate or elongated uvula may result in narrowing of the nasal passage from the mouth. During sleep these structures vibrate and knock against each other partially blocking the airway which leads to snoring.

Sonorous breathing

Treatment can entail behavioral and lifestyle changes as well as medical intervention or complementary therapies.

Behavioral and Lifestyle Changes
Weight Loss
Sleeping on the side to prevent the tongue from dropping to the back of the throat thereby blocking the airway.
Avoidance of alcohol and sedatives which cause increased relaxation of the muscles including those in the throat which could obstruct the airway.
Elevation of head of bed to encourage tongue and jaw to move forward
Treatment or clearance of nasal congestion which can be done with decongestants but restrict use of antihistamines that overly relax the throat muscles.

Medical/Surgical Intervention:
Oral or Dental Appliances these devices help keep the airways open by advancing the position of the tongue and soft palate.
Nasal Strips used to open nasal passages
Medications such as mild inhaled steroids may be prescribed for snoring due to swelling of the lining of the nose.
Surgical procedures include:
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) tightening and trimming of extra tissue in the throat
Somnoplasty Removal of part of the soft palate by the use of low-intensity radiofrequency signals.
Cautery-assisted palatal stiffening operation (CAPSO) a less costly procedure than somnoplasty but aims to achieve the same results, namely palatal stiffening by using cautery equipment to remove part of the palate.
Nasal Reconstructive Surgery is for those who have abnormalities in the nose or upper airways. This surgery aims to open obstructed nasal passages.

Magnetic Therapy
Magnets are utilized to alleviate and relieve snoring by implantation. Clinical and animal studies have been done that show that when magnets are implanted in the nose with like poles facing, the resulting repelling force keeps the airways open. Others posit that the magnet stimulate the sensory nerves of the nose, opening the nasal passages which prevents snoring.
