What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissue in your upper airway during sleep. When you are asleep, your airways relax and narrow. If your airway is too narrow air has to travel more quickly to supply enough oxygen to your lungs. This increased speed reduces the air pressure within your airways. This causes the airway to deform or collapse and the tissue to vibrate. It’s these vibrations that are associated with the sound of snoring.
How Your Sleep Position Affects Snoring
People are more likely to snore when lying on their back as the head is pushed towards the chest, constricting the airways. When lying on either side, the muscles can still completely relax but the head and neck have more space without restriction. It can even be comfortable to flay the neck somewhat backward – which can result in airways restriction but in the opposite way. However many individuals move whilst asleep, meaning that even if they fall asleep whilst lying on their side, they later roll onto their back, which means the snoring starts all over again! So this sound sleep anti-snore pillow will hopefully reduce the snoring once and for all!
