Our sleep is disrupted when we snore or experience breathing anomalies like sleep apnea or asthma. Likewise, if we sleep with a partner, our partner's sleep is also disrupted. Therefore, looking for viable solutions to respond to snoring or address sleep apnea is important for our sleep and our partner's sleep.
In a large Sleeptracker-AI study of 600,000+ nights of sleep, sleep quality was inversely related to the severity of breathing anomalies during the night. Those with fewer breathing anomalies during the night spent more of the night in REM and Deep Sleep phases and less of the night awake than those experiencing more breathing anomalies.
