Singing for Snorers
Consultant otolaryngologist Malcolm Hilton from the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital is to conduct a clinical trial to test if singing exercises can reduce or eradicate snoring.

More than 100 patients at the hospital are to take part in a programme of exercises that are designed to strengthen the throat which was devised by local singing teacher Alise Ojay.

The singing exercises designed to strengthen the throat could help snoring - as well as a condition known as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), which causes people to stop breathing during deep sleep.

Voice tutor Alise Ojay, said: "If you can speak, you can sing. Be warned, the sounds you will make have been chosen for their therapeutic effect and not for their exceptional beauty so you will definitely need a sense of humour and either a secret place or an understanding and supportive family”.

Mr Hilton said: "Millions of people are affected by snoring and OSA.

"Snoring might not be life threatening, but it can be enormously disruptive to people's lives and snorers often seek medical help.

"OSA can be much more serious, causing people to stop breathing during deep sleep”.

Researchers are still looking for volunteers who will need to be referred by their GP.
The trial is expected to last about two years.
