Snoring is caused by the stenosis of the upper respiratory tract, which can lead to the vibration of the palatine uvula. Snoring brings not only harm to the snorer but also sleep deprivation to those around them. Furthermore, studies show that loud snorers have a 67% greater chance of suffering from a stroke and a 34% higher risk of having a heart attack. To identify people at risk from these diseases, snoring recording and analysis become highly important.
