"First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers..." :
Please read my disclaimer. I'm not a sleep professional.
There is not as much here now as I would like. I'm counting on you, the visitors, to help change that. So, please, if you have any...please use email form (link at foot of page) to send information. I'm looking for whatever can be sent electronically (or even via snail-mail). If you have informational files, papers, names, addresses, manufacturer info, sleep center info, articles - whatever! If you think it might be of any interest at all to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) sufferers, please send it. If you have comments or suggestions, send them, too - but no guarantees as to when they will appear; I only have so many hours in the day.
SNORE is intended to be a repository for information about Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Some information is also included about other sleep disorders, but I have chosen to concentrate on the one which concerns me most closely. If you have something to contribute on OSA, in any format, send it along and I'll format it and put it up here if I think it is of value. If you have information about other disorders, you can also send that, but it must be pre-formatted (in HTML) and ready to go.
A great resource for information about other sleep disorders is Dr. Michael Thorpy's home page, which contains links to sleep-related resources of all kinds.

NB: Yes, I am well aware that "apnoea" is the British spelling, and in America it's usally spelled "apnea", but I like the first way better, I consider it more proper (in that it's closer to its Latin root), it's a perfectly valid spelling.
