About 12% of chronic snorers have a potentially serious medical disorder called obstructive sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea leads to excessive daytime sleepiness, lack of concentration and poor memory. Over time, it may cause serious damage to the heart and brain.
During sleep all of your muscles relax, including those surrounding the airway. In simple snoring, the narrowed airway vibrates but does not block off. Obstructive sleep apnoea is caused by the tongue and other soft tissues in the back of the throat falling backwards and blocking the airway.
Some people are particularly at risk of this, because the airway is narrow from obesity or the lower jaw is relatively small.
