Sleep apnea is a chronic disorder that causes shallow or paused breathing during sleep. Some pauses can last as long as a minute or more, causing sufferers to snore as a way to start breathing again, or wake abruptly gasping for air. Just because you or your child snores doesn’t mean it’s sleep apnea. However, it is important to understand the root cause of your abnormal sleep behavior. Snorers can develop other serious health problems.
Finding the right snoring treatment may involve imaging tests to check the airway structure or a sleep study to observe you or your child’s behavior, brain waves, heart rate, and other vitals at rest. In many cases, snoring treatment is as simple as medication for sinusitis or allergies. In severe cases, nasal surgery may be required to remove blockages or address other issues.
