We are all used to anyone who snores not sleeping well and waking up tired in the morning. However, this is not the case, at least if this condition is not related to the so-called "obstructive apnea" during sleep.
This was the result of a study by the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute in Canada, published in the American Journal of Otolaryngology. For Canadian research, a group of 235 people were recruited who had requested professional help for their sleep-related disorders.
The researchers recorded the frequency of their snoring and those who suffered from apnea were excluded from the research participants. Obstructive, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome.
The remaining 74 participants were divided into three groups, depending on how much they snore. The quality and quantity of sleep were then measured using "polysomnography", a test used to diagnose sleep disorders by recording brainwaves, heart rate and eye movements. Study participants should also assess how sleepy they feel and assess the likelihood of falling asleep in different situations throughout the day.
At the end of the study it was found that there was no correlation between the degree of "snoring" of the participants and how many hours they slept, how often they were awake or how tired they were the next day.
