treatment for Snoring problem
Snoring is caused by vibrating tissues within the airways of the nose and throat. The vibrations that cause snoring are caused by turbulent airflow through narrowed airways. Snoring is affected by the stage of sleep sleeping position, and the use of medications and alcohol. Snoring, like all other sounds, is caused by vibrations that cause particles in the air to form sound waves. While we are asleep, turbulent airflow can cause the tissues of the palate (roof of the mouth) and throat to vibrate, giving rise to snoring.
How Common is Snoring?
Any person can snore. Frequently, people who do not regularly snore will report snoring after a viral illness, after drinking alcohol, or when taking some medications. People who snore can have any body type. We frequently think of a large man with a thick neck as a snorer. However, a thin woman with a small neck can snore just as loudly. In general, as people get older and as they gain weight, snoring will worsen.
Reasons for Snoring
While we are breathing ir flows in and out in a steady stream between our nose or mouth and our lungs. There are relatively few sounds when we are sitting and breathing quietly. When we exercise
the air moves more quickly and produces some sounds as we breathe. This happens because air is moving in and out of the nose and mouth more quickly and this results in more turbulence to the airflow and some vibration of the tissues in the nose and mouth.
When we are asleep, the area at the back of the throat sometimes narrows as the muscles relax, and even close off temporarily. The same amount of air passing through this smaller opening more rapidly can cause the tissues surrounding the opening to vibrate, which in turn can cause the sounds of snoring. Different people who snore have different reasons for the narrowing. The narrowing can be in the nose, mouth, or throat. Palatal snoring is often worse when an individual breathes through his or her mouth or has nasal obstruction.
Other reasons could be:
Enlarged Adenoids or tonsils in children
Treatment for Snoring
In case of Tonsils or Sinus a surgery for the same could be done and the snorning problem could be relieved. However in other cases of snoring a small day care surgery or 1 Minute Snoring Surgery as called in GNH Hospital Gurgaon using Radio Frequency (RF) is the best and most advanced treatement for snoring surgery in India.
Radio Frequency (RF) Surgery for Snoring or 1 Minute Snoring Surgery
Radiofrequency palatoplasty is one of the best and most advanced procedure that uses an electrical current to shrink and stiffen the back part of the roof of the mouth (soft palate).When the soft palate and uvula are stiffer, they are less likely to vibrate and you are less likely to snore. After the surgery, most people report a little pain, such as a mild sore throat, that lasts for a day. Radiofrequency palatoplasty is usually performed in a doctor's office, and many people return to work and other regular activities in few hours. At GNH Hospital Gurgaon India we call it "1 Minute Snoring Surgery"
The radiofrequency surgery or 1 Minute Snoring Surgery done at GNH Hospital Gurgaon India for snoring is relatively painless and is done under local anaesthesia which doesn't require any stay in hospital before and after surgery.
