Likely Not: Loud snoring, bothersome in itself, can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (osa). Osa has been shown to have significant affects on quality of life as well as even a significant increase on mortality. A sleep study will determine if a patient has osa. Loud snoring without osa can be detrimental as well as it can cause a loss of intimacy with bed partners.

How can I get some sleep when my partner is snoring?

Get it checked: Encourage your partner to seek medical help in determining the reason for snoring. Often, a collapsed airway is involved and today, an overnight take home sleep test can provide critical information to determine if a more life threatning, life shortening condition of sleep apnea may be involved. It can maybe save his/her life!
