AbstractTen subjects known to suffer from heavy snoring but not obstructive sleep apnoea were studied using the technique of sleep nasendoscopy. The mechanism of snoring was noted for each and sound recordings of the snoring noise were made. Six subjects were observed to snore using their soft palate only, three snored using only their tongue base and one snored using a combination of palate and tongue base. The sound recordings were subjected to computer analysis of waveform and frequency. Palatal flutter snoring and tongue base snoring appear to have distinct waveform and frequency patterns which allows them to be differentiated from each other.
