OSAS is Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. When you have sleep apnea, your breath can turn out to be shallow or you may even quit breathing - quickly - while you sleep. It can happen frequently in certain cases.

Obstructive sleep apnea happens when something incompletely or totally hinders your upper aviation route amid shut-eye. That makes your stomach and chest muscles work more earnestly to open the impeded aviation route and maneuver air into the lungs. Breathing ordinarily continues with an uproarious heave, grunt, or body yank. You may not sleep soundly, however you most likely won't know this is going on.

Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Bedwetting, Sweating a lot at night, Choking, Learning and behavior disorders, Ribcage moves inward when they exhale, Teeth grinding, Snoring, Problems at school, Pauses or absence of breathing, Unusual sleeping positions.

The treatment includes:
CPAP machine. This mask incorporates a veil that you wear over your nose or mouth, or both. An air blower powers steady and continuous air through the nose or mouth. Search for CPAP mask reviews before buying the product.

Lose some weight, if necessary. Stay away from alcohol and sleeping pills.
Nasal sprays, if sinus issues or nasal clog make it harder to inhale while you sleep.

OSAS stands for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. This is a condition where you stop breathing during sleep for more than 10 seconds, more than 5 times an hour. Snoring can sometimes be an indication of OSAS which is potentially dangerous, so it's important that your doctor follows up with some tests.

Is snoring can be cured by surgery? If yes then How?


As per my personal opinion surgery should be the last option to cure snoring. And even it is not sure that it will stop snoring completely. I too suffered with this snoring problem since last two years and I have tried for many options other than surgery. I took consultation through many doctors about my snoring problems, but no result. Finally, I came to know about ASONOR through one of my family doctor and really it's work like any thing else. Right now I am leading a good marriage life. Thank Asonor

My throat specialist suggested that I go for the pillar treatment to deal with my snoring. Do you think it would work for me?


It's really hard to answer your question given that we don't know your medical background. I can tell you that the pillar system treatment stiffens the palate and reduces plate tissue vibration. Your doctor can't guarantee it will take care of your snoring but there is a high probability that it will certainly improve the problem.

I heard there is an anti snoring chin strap. Has anyone use one? And do they work?


I don't think so that any other device will work effectively for snoring is my personal experience. As I have already used and tried many options other than surgery. Even I took consultation through many doctors about my snoring problems, but no result. Finally I came to know about Asonor effective Anti Snoring solution

I have always snored and just put up with it but lately my husband is complaining a lot more about it. He says I need to see the doctor but I think it's not a medical issue. When should I seek a m


Snoring affects millions of people and sometimes there are things that can be done about it, improving both the sleep of you and your partner, so it's always worth getting a medical opinion.

But if you are feeling any of the following, you should definitely see your doctor;

1. If your snoring at night is loud and heavy and you feel tired during the day

2. You gasp for breath or choke during the night while you are sleeping

3. You fall asleep at strange times ie during a meal or while chatting.

I have bad allergies and I think it's making me snore. My wife is getting so cross with me. Any suggestions?


Allergies can really cause congestion which then leads to snoring as blocked airways cause vibrations of throat tissue and that's what makes the snoring noise.

Trying using anti congest ants and / or nasal sprays for a few days. But you shouldn't use these medications for long as sometimes they can actually make the problem worse, so make sure you follow your doctor's instructions.

Can nasal strips help with snoring problems? They sell them in my local pharmacy and I am thinking of trying them but they are very expensive.


Nasal strips are basically adhesive strips that are applied to the nose, helping to create more space in the nasal passage which reduces the blocked air feeling that leads to snoring.

Nasal strips can be very effective but it really depends what the cause is of your snoring.

You could check with your doctor before you buy any and ask him/ her if they think it would be helpful in your case.

What is a somnoplasty? My doctor said it might be an ideal solution to my snoring.


Somnoplasty is a radio frequency tissue ablation! Which is real terms means that doctors use low-intensity radio frequency to shrink the tissue in the soft palate that blocks the airways and causes snoring.

Somnoplasty can be done in the outpatient clinic and doesn't need an anesthetic .

It's quite a new procedure and is thought to be less painful and intrusive than some of the other snoring solutions, but it's effectiveness is still not fully known.
