Global Anti Snoring Devices and Snoring Surgery Market Overview
Snoring is a loud hoarse sound that occurs during sleep. It is a common phenomenon faced by both genders in almost all age groups and occurs in people who are overweight, more frequently in men. It may occur at both night and day time. Aging and obesity are the most important factors behind snoring. Technically, vibration of respiratory structures produces sound due to blocked air movement while sleeping. It can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The sound is produced by tissues that are present at the top of the airway that strike with each other and vibrates. Snorers sleep can be disrupted, as well as there may be disturbances in sleep of the bed partner.
Anti-snoring devices that are used to prevent snoring includes Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Devices (CPAP), Tongue Stabilizing Device (TSD), Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), Nasal Devices and others. The hoarse irritating sound of snoring does not come from the nose, rather it comes from behind the airway.
Surgical treatment of snoring is known as somnoplasty. In this treatment, heat energy is used for the modification of tissues of the soft palate and uvula. It uses low levels of radiofrequency heat energy and local anaesthesia for the procedure. These low levels of radio frequency waves are specifically targeted to burn a specific region of tissue behind soft palate. This small area of tissues is absorbed into the body as they gradually heal which results in the reduction in the amount of tissue.
