Snoring is an extremely common condition, which is usually detected by the patient’s wife/husband as it tends to affect their sleep quality too. Although it might just be a sign of temporary fatigue, especially after drinking alcohol, it may also be a marker of a more serious underlying condition called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).  If left undetected and untreated, obstructive sleep apnea is associated with an increased risk of heart problems and stroke complications in the longterm.
