10 to 30 % of adults have primary snoring.
About 5 % of the adult population suffers from obstructive sleep apnea.
The most common symptoms of sleep apnea are loud snoring, excessive daytime somnolence, nocturnal choking or gasping, poor concentration and memory impairment.
Due to the hypersomnolence, car accidents are very common in patients with sleep apnea.
Primary snoring, increased upper airway resistance and obstructive sleep apnea are closely linked to obesity.
Dietary advice and weight loss plays a significant role in the treatment of these disorders.
CPAP therapy (continuous positive airway pressure), upper airway evaluation and possible procedures by ENT (ear nose and throat), dental appliances, exercise program are some of the options available for your selection.
