What Causes Snoring?

Snoring and airway obstruction are due to events occurring in the upper airway. At the end of expiration, the upper airway is most susceptible to collapse because the pressure is low, upper airway is narrowest, lung volume is smallest, and muscles are most relaxed. Consequently, when inhalation begins, and a small negative is created, it causes potential upper airway collapse.
