sleep apnea's snore

Those with sleep apnea have a different snore than others who snore. Instead of the constant drone of air moving in and out of the mouth, someone with sleep apnea has rips and snorts of sound. That's because the air that is trying to go down the windpipe is being blocked. The brain sends a signal that no air is being sent to the lungs. Not a good thing. the body awakens with a loud snort which is the same as gasping for air.
