Sleep Apnea and Snoring Center
Snoring Keeping You Up At Night?
Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Is your snoring affecting you or your partner? You are not alone. About 45% of all U.S. adults snore at least occasionally, and around 1 in every 4 are habitual snorers. The St. Louis Sinus Center provides quality sleep apnea and snoring treatments for patients in Missouri.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
When the upper airways become obstructed or inhibited, this can lead to sleep disruption, reduced quality sleep, and snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious condition in which snoring can lead to a complete lack of airflow or inhibited breathing while asleep. If you are experiencing obstructive sleep apnea, your bed partner may hear a break in snoring followed by a loud gasp for air and further snoring.
