Know Your Snore Status
 

 

Sometimes during sleep a person's airway becomes partially blocked, thereby forcing the lungs to inhale with more force. Due to the stronger inhalation, the soft palate and uvula vibrate. This is known as snoring. The animation above illustrates what is going on inside the body when a person snores.
