Sleep Apnea

Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone.

[Solitude, in Poems of Passion]

Snore and you snore alone [anonymous wit], a problem recognised by most of us.

But is this a modern disease?

Apparently not with a quote by A Roger Ekirch in his At Day’s Close:

“in 1737 a snoring husband received a shovel of hot embers in his gaping mouth”!

Snoring is common.

One half of middle-aged men and 25% of middle aged women snore intrusively.
