Leading this year's National Stop Snoring Week the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association (BSSAA) is helping an estimated 20 million partners of snorers who do not get a good night's sleep. Through a structured programme the health, daytime functioning and relationships of all these people are set to improve.
After 22 years of tirelessly promoting public awareness of sleep apnoea, the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association are pleased to announce that the public are finally recognising the symptoms and long-term effects of this debilitating and potentially life threatening condition.
The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association recently conducted a survey into public awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
After 30 years' of poor sleep, Jane and Eric were delighted that Eric's problem had been identified, diagnosed and treated in just one week.
Volunteers will use a chosen remedy for one week and report their progress with video diaries.

Preliminary findings from our survey reveal that it takes snorers an average of 18 years to tackle their snoring complaint. This not only increases the risk of snorers developing serious health problems but also leads to unnecessary sleep deprivation and health consequences for their long-suffering bed partners.
For the UK's 15 million snorers, night time can involve disturbed sleep for the snorer and their bed partner, as well as causing unwanted physical and psychological side effects for adults and children alike.
The clocks may be going back an hour but many people won't gain another hour's kip, according to The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association
