    Abstract

    Full assessment of snoring should involve general and local factors which contribute to the patient's complaint, such as any history of apnoea attacks, high body mass index, reflux, smoking, alcohol consumption, uvulasize and laxity of soft palate, collar size and base of tongue. The paper did not clearly identify the potential importance of these factors.
