How snoring affects everyday life


Snoring is not a harmless thing, it affects both sexes and all ages.

The sleep of the partner is disturbed by it, and snoring can also be a cause of health problems for the snorer. Such as chronic daytime tiredness, microsleep, lack of concentration, loss of performance and, in the case of OSA, even myocardial infarction and stroke.

Two or more hours of sleep loss.

60% of all men and 50% of all women are loud snorers. About 70% of those affected feel strongly disturbed by their partner‘s snoring and lose two or more hours of sleep. 

The older you get the more you snore.

As we get older, the soft palate at the back of the roof of the mouth becomes more susceptible to vibration. And the movement of this tissue, including the uvula, intensifies and the snoring increases.

Ageing is usually accompanied by weight gain and the increasingly sedentary lifestyle often leads to additional pounds. Overweight or obesity – especially in the neck area – goes hand in hand with snoring.

Alcohol and insomnia medicines relax the muscles even more and suppress the drive to breathe.

2 billion snorers worldwide – 500 million indirectly affected
