By the late twentieth century, the medical community recognized that snoring and daytime sleepiness were signs of sleepdisordered breathing (SDB) especially obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS). SDB is associated with a 7-fold increase in the incidence of motor vehicle accidents; linked to accidents at work and home; and implicated in failures at job and education as well as failed personal relationships and the general bedroom disharmony caused by rancorous snoring and sexual impotence. The co-morbidities of SDB are hypertension, obesity, diabetes, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, heart attack, stroke, asthma, and gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD).
