Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping.
In some cases, the sound may be soft, but in most cases, it can be loud and unpleasant.
Snoring during sleep may be a sign, or first alarm, of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Researchers say that snoring is a factor of sleep deprivation.
