Snoring is a condition in which the airway becomes blocked or may vibrate during sleep, causing the patient to produce sound. Snoring may be associated with sleep apnea which may lead to poor sleep and fatigue and over time may contribute to heart and lung failure and even death, if severe and left untreated. Treatment is aimed and relieving the obstruction to allow for better airflow during sleep. Snoring may be treated conservatively with weight loss, a dental appliance, Breathe-right strips for the nose, or medications to relieve nasal obstruction. Various operations may also be offered to remove or bypass the areas of obstruction in the airway.
