Our expert on sleep disorders from Berlin explains why we snore, tells us what therapies can help and shares his tips.
Dr. Thomas Penzel works at the Interdisplinary Medical Sleep Centre at the Charité Teaching Hospital Berlin. Snoring can be completely harmless, but it also causes a rise in blood pressure, putting strain on the heart and circulation – this can prove fatal. Therefore, chronic snorers should undergo a check up.
