Singing exercises may help control snoring
Inaugurated by additional commissioner of police Shrikant Tarwade, the programme had eminent doctors of the city providing their perspective on snoring and other sleep disorders. Speakers included senior pulmonologist Dr Ashok Arbat, psychiatrist Dr Sudhir Bhave and ENT surgeon Dr Sanjeev Glohar. Dr Arbat warned that snoring can be fatal and needs precautionary measures and expert guidance at the earliest. While snoring should not be taken lightly, most of us are not aware about having the habit, he said. “The habit could lead to sleep apnea (breathing stoppage for 10 seconds or more), of which a snorer may have 100 or more episodes during sleep. It causes sleep deprivation, sleep fragmentation and loss of sleep architecture, which in turn can cause many other health problems,” he said.

Serious singers improve the tone and strength of these muscles by practicing certain vocal exercises. The study came about because choir director Alise Ojay contacted Malcolm Hilton, consultant otolaryngologist at the Exeter hospital and sub dean of the University of Exeter Medical School. Dr. Hilton explains: “Alise told me that a number of people had benefitted from the singing exercise programme she had devised to strengthen the throat muscles. I then set up this trial and the results have been really interesting.” Hilton explains that snoring and obstructive sleep apnea affect millions of people. Snoring may not be a life-threatening condition, but it disrupts lives and sufferers often seek medical advice.

Although there were improvements in sleepiness, this did not lead to significant improvements in quality of life. Overall, these results give preliminary evidence that regular singing exercises may help people who snore or have mild to moderate sleep apnoea. The effects of singing would ideally be confirmed in larger studies that look at people who snore and those with sleep apnoea separately, using sleep studies to confirm subjective reports of improvement. If such studies confirmed these results, it would prove that singing could provide another non-invasive way of reducing the symptoms of sleep apnoea or snoring. Regular singing has no known side effects and has also been used to help people with other respiratory conditions, such as severe asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) .
