Overview

Snoring is a loud, hoarse, or harsh breathing sound that occurs during sleep.

Pathophysiology

Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures, resulting in an audible sound. Snoring is caused by an obstruction of normal breathing air movement while sleeping. The sound may be soft or loud and unpleasant. Snoring is usually an involuntary act, but may also be produced voluntarily.
