What is SnoreLab?
The most popular and innovative app of its kind, SnoreLab records, measures and tracks your snoring and helps you to discover effective ways to reduce it. SnoreLab has monitored more than 50 million nights of sleep and has helped millions of people better understand or even eliminate their snoring problem. Go to SnoreLab.com to get the app.
The app is very easy to use: simply set SnoreLab running next to your bed while you sleep. In the morning you will discover your Snore Score, exactly when and how loudly you snored, and listen to some highlights!
How do I use SnoreLab with Solea Sleep?
We ask that you use SnoreLab for at least 3 to 10 typical nights before your treatment to record your pre-treatment Snore Score.
Immediately after your Solea Sleep procedure we ask you to use SnoreLab for another at least 3 to 10 typical nights to record your post-treatment SnoreScore. Compare the two Snore Scores to gauge the degree of improvement from Solea Sleep laser treatment. Monitor your SnoreScore over time to gauge when you need a Solea Sleep maintenance treatment.
How can SnoreLab Help My Snoring?
The SnoreLab app is not designed to cure snoring, rather it is intended to give you an understanding of your snoring problem and help you find a suitable solution to improve your sleep.
There are many effective ways to reduce snoring from changing habits, to appliances, to surgeries - and now quickly and comfortably with Solea Sleep - but different approaches work for different people. By measuring changes in your snoring intensity between nights with SnoreLab, you can try different methods and hopefully discover one which works for you.
Crucially, SnoreLab also allows you to hear what you sound like so you don’t just have to take your partner’s word for it! We find this can be a dramatic revelation which spurs you to take action. It is a great app for those who might be in denial of snoring or would like to gather more information about their snore and sleep habits.
What is the Snore Score?
The Snore Score is SnoreLab’s unique measure of snoring intensity. More than simply reporting back a few volume readings, the Snore Score takes into account those different volumes and how long you spend at each level.
The Snore Score is different from snoring percentage which is a measure of the proportion of the night spent snoring. Therefore the Snore Score can exceed 100 – there are cases of users scoring more than 300!
Should I be worried about my results?
If you’ve got a high score, this is no reason to panic. Snoring is not necessarily harmful, at least physically speaking. If your snoring is putting a strain on your relationship with your bed partner, this is when it can become an issue; you don’t need a Snore Score to tell you this. But when does snoring become damaging to your physical health?
If snoring develops into obstructive sleep apnea, your physical health is at risk. This is because sleep apnea is a serious condition where your airway repeatedly closes whilst you sleep, depriving you of oxygen and putting stress and strain on your heart and other body systems.
Whilst louder snoring is a key sign of sleep apnea, a high Snore Score does not mean you have the condition.
If you are suffering from sleep apnea, you might already be aware of it based on your symptoms. Excessive daytime sleepiness, mood swings, never feeling fully rested after sleep, as well as headaches and sore throats are big red flags.
If you feel physically fine and your Snore Score is high, chances are, you have nothing to worry about.
What is an average Snore Score?
The median Snore Score for our users is around 25. A score above 50 puts you in the “bad snoring” category, and if you’re above 100 you definitely need to find some solutions!
Everyone is unique, so whilst it’s not best practice to compare yourself to others, we believe a Snore Score of 10 or under is a good target as this is unlikely to disturb you or your partner.
Is It Snoring Or Sleep Apnea?
It is normal to have a high Snore Score or be told you snore and then worry if it might be something more serious.
Some important things to consider are:
Normal snorers don’t stop breathing
Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea – nearly everyone who has sleep apnea snores
If untreated, snoring can become sleep apnea
95% of people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) snore, but not all snorers have OSA 
Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are strongly linked, but one can occur without the other or simultaneously
