The Laryngology Clinic deals with diagnostics, treatment and qualification for surgical procedures performed as part of the Laryngology Department.
Snoring is a symptom of obstructed airflow through the patient’s airways. Increased airway resistance causes the air flowing during inhalation to move and vibrate the uvula and the soft palate.
Problems with bothersome snoring may be related, among others, to with obesity, nicotinism, hypertrophy of the palatine tonsils or laxity of the pharyngeal muscles. Snoring can also be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea – a condition that is associated with repeated episodes of loss or shallow airflow through the airways. Therefore, proper diagnosis and treatment of snoring may contribute, among others, to to improve the quality of sleep or reduce the frequency of awakenings.
