The objective of the study is to compare the prevalence and severity of snoring and daytime somnolence amongst semiprofessional choir singers and non-singers. It is a cross-sectional comparative study and the setting is at a tertiary otorhinolaryngology referral centre. Adult singers were recruited from two mixed-gender choirs in London. The control group consisted of healthy volunteers who do not sing. The weight and height of all participants were measured by a single investigator. A… Expand

Can singing exercises reduce snoring? A pilot study.
TLDR
This pilot study was a first step in determining whether singing exercises could be used as a non-invasive treatment to increase muscle tone in the tissues of the throat and thereby reduce snoring. Expand
A community study of snoring and sleep-disordered breathing. Symptoms.
TLDR
It is concluded that the symptoms seen in clinic patients with OSA also occur in subjects with SDB who have not presented for medical attention, suggesting that causes of self-reported EDS other than SDB may be common. Expand

TLDR
This study shows that the UPPP operation is successful in only 45 per cent of patients after long-term follow-up, that the majority of patients experience severe pain and that the overall satisfaction with surgery is low. Expand

Sleep-related breathing disorders, loud snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness in obese subjects
TLDR
It is shown that OSA is present in more than 50% of a population of obese patients with a mean BMI higher than 40.0, this percentage being much higher than that commonly reported in previous studies, particularly in women. Expand
The role of oxygen saturation measurement and body mass index in distinguishing between non-apnoeic snorers and patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.
TLDR
SaO2 and BMI were not found to be useful in the assessment of the severity of OSAS; however, patients who had Min SaO2 above 85% could be evaluated as non-apnoeic snorers. Expand

TLDR
There were significant increases in the prevalence of hypertension, coronary artery disease, and occlusive vascular disease from nonsnorers through snorers to subjects with SDB (57, 20, and 28%). Expand
Prospective study of the association between sleep-disordered breathing and hypertension.
TLDR
A dose-response association between sleep-disordered breathing at base line and the presence of hypertension four years later was found that was independent of known confounding factors and suggest that sleep- disordered breathing is likely to be a risk factor for hypertension and consequent cardiovascular morbidity in the general population.
