TO raise awareness of the resources available to combat snoring, the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association is holding its 11th annual National Stop Snoring Week. This should come as good news to the many people whose lives are affected by their own or a partner’s snoring.
From April 22nd to 26th Britons can take part in the initiative by attending events and contributing their thoughts. Recently, the association conducted a survey to assess public awareness of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, its signs, symptoms and risk factors. The results will be discussed throughout the week.
Sleep apnoea is a common cause of snoring. It is a sleep disorder which affects a person’s breathing while he or she is asleep. This can affect the quality of sleep and lower the amount of time spent in the deep sleep phase.
Jonathan Attwood, a spokesperson for the Duvet and Pillow Warehouse (DAPW) comments: “While snoring cannot be cured, it can be treated. It’s campaigns like National Stop Snoring Week that can really make a difference. Many people simply put up with the condition without realising help is available. It is!
“It’s time to put an end to the suffering caused by snoring. We at DAPW express our support to the organisers and thank them for the initiative!”
Every year sees the campaign focus on a different aspect of snoring. The 2012 edition was focused on compiling snoring remedies and old wives tales said to cure the condition, and in 2011 it was geared towards couples as three quarters of UK couples are now said to be spending the night in separate rooms due to one or the other snoring.
Media packs are available to download from the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association website.
