Complaint By Amy
My husband snores like a freight train,I can’t stand to sleep in the same room with the man! I’ve tried everything to help him out. Breath right strips, heated humidifiers, nasal masks, sprays and filters, for his sleep Apnea, nothing seems to work. I'm sleep deprived,Is there a cure?
I feel your pain Amy. Most men don’t enjoy sleeping treatments, because such remedies may agitate there rest. Your husband may want to invest in a mouthpiece, which could provide a good night's rest.
There are also centers which specialize in evaluating snoring conditions.
Sleep disorders span many medical fields, requiring multidisciplinary approaches not only to treatment, but also to basic research. The Center works with neuroscientists, cellular and molecular biologists, geneticists, physiologists, neuropsychiatrists, immunologists, pulmonary specialists, cardiologists, epidemiologists, behavioral scientists, and other experts. Ongoing research is supported by the NIH and other Federal agencies.
Clinical trials are research studies that explore whether a medical strategy, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies also may show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people. Clinical trials produce the best data available for health care decisionmaking.
The purpose of clinical trials is research, so the studies follow strict scientific standards. These standards protect patients and help produce reliable study results.
Clinical trials are one of the final stages of a long and careful research process. The process often begins in a laboratory (lab), where scientists first develop and test new ideas.

The Cause And The Cure!
What causes snoring, and is there a cure?
Snoring takes place when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. Air flow can be blocked by a number of issues:
- Obstructed nasal airways:
- Poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue:
- Bulky throat tissue:
- Long soft palate and/or uvula:
Depending on your husband’s comfort level, sleep apnea can be treated by consulting your doctor who should refer a specialist.
Don't drink and maintain your weight.
However if all fails, you could always invest in a guest house and a pair of ear plugs, in order to distance yourself from the freight train snoring throughout your bedroom.
Different Levels Of Snoring
What are different levels of snoring?
Mild resistance to airflow for any of the above reasons in the upper airways may result in some snoring that is not associated with any sleep disturbance.
According To Medicine Net.com there are different levels of snoring.
If resistance to airflow increases, the efforts to maintain adequate ventilation and breathing may cause transient arousal from sleep that is typically not severe enough to cause the level of oxygen in the blood to decrease (hypoxia). This is called the respiratory effort related arousal (RERA).
When the resistance increases even further, the ventilatory efforts cannot keep up with the degree of resistance to maintain adequate levels of oxygen, and airflow decreases or stops. This often leads to a decrease in the level of oxygen in the blood. As a result, sleep becomes more fragmented and arousals more frequent. The events are referred to as obstructive hypopneas or apneas, and the condition is termed obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome.
