Dr. Denis Slinkin claims that once snoring was considered a sign of Bogatyr’s health, then – the cause of family conflicts, and now such people are strongly recommended to undergo medical examination by an otorhinolaryngologist.

Recently, to solve this difficult problem on the basis of research institutes and ENT centers are actively opening special doubtful laboratories, allowing you to fully examine patients with snoring problems. 

Correctly, the diagnosis of snoring is called ronchopathy. Undoubtedly, snoring is a phenomenon, the uniqueness of which lies in the fact that “snoring” does not hear its own sounds, but those around you “enjoy” the night concert fully.

At the same time, the sounds that are made at night have a very low frequency, unpleasant to the human ear. As a rule, people try to get rid of snoring solely out of love for their neighbors, believing that they are absolutely healthy. But this is not true: snoring makes it difficult to ventilate both lungs and brain, creating a lack of oxygen in the blood and it not only prevents sleep, but also creates the conditions for the emergence of cardiovascular and nervous system pathology, says Dr. Denis Slinkin.

Difficulty in breathing may result from several problems of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx. A person may snore because of a narrow nasal passageway, post-traumatic or congenital septal curvature, large polyps in the nasal cavity, an increase in the size of the lower nasal shells, which leads to a nasal congestion and leads to the development of chronic rhinitis.

In case of alcohol intoxication, almost all muscles lack tone, including the palate, hence the relaxation and sagging of the soft palate and, as a result, a terrible snoring.

If you are overweight, people are also doomed to snoring, because due to increased fatty tissue in the neck, there is compression of the soft tissues of the throat and reduced laryngeal and pharyngeal lumen. 

The use of nicotine leads to severe irritation of the mucous membrane of the larynx and throat, burning and irritating it. The resulting swelling of the mucous membrane narrows the larynx and throat lumen, as well as greatly reduces the tone of the throat muscles, so smokers are likely to snore, so says Dr. Denis Slinkin.
