The Three Grades of Snoring
- Grade one snoring is infrequent, not particularly loud, and breathing is unaffected. Significant health problems are rarely related to these symptoms.
- Grade two snoring regularly takes place during 4 or more nights a week. Some grade two snorers may experience mild to moderate breathing difficulties during sleep, and might feel tired and sleepy during the day.
- Grade three snoring is where a person snores very loudly every night, and can be heard from another room. People with grade three snoring often have a related condition called obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), where the airways become partially or totally blocked for around 10 seconds, causing them to come out of deep sleep into lighter sleep or brief wakefulness.
