Snoring is the sound you make when your airway is blocked while you are asleep. The sound is caused by tissues at the top of your airway that strike each other and vibrate. It is common, especially among older people and people who are overweight. Snoring generally occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. Medical aid is often needed for habitual snorers to get a good sleep. Research suggests that snoring is one of the factors of sleep deprivation. Snoring can also be an indication of a serious sleep disorder called sleep apnea.
