Australian study finds link between snoring, elevated blood pressure

An Australian study by Flinders University has found a significant link between snoring and elevated blood pressure. The study monitored 12,287 middle-aged participants, 88 percent of whom were male, over six months using home-based technologies. It revealed that 15 percent of participants snored for more than 20 percent of the night, and those with high snoring levels had significantly higher systolic and diastolic blood pressure than non-snorers. Lead author Bastien Lechat emphasized the importance of considering snoring in healthcare and hypertension management. The World Health Organization estimates that 1.28 billion adults globally have hypertension, with 46 percent unaware of their condition.
