What does snoring mean?

Persistent long term snoring,  is an alarm that something is wrong with the way a person is breathing and they may  not be getting enough oxygen while they are sleeping. Snoring or sleep disordered breathing can be a sign of sleep apnoea, which is when breathing completely stops for  a few seconds.  A sleep study can help determine the extent and severity of sleep apnoea . Depending on the cause of sleep apnoea, we can assist with treatment.  In children, heavy breathing may be cause for concern.
