SNORING, ILLUSTRATION Anatomy of a snorer. Illustration of the anatomical airway (rhino-pharynx) of a snorer, highlighting the nasal cavity, pharyngeal wall and the uvula. The uvula of a snorer is abnormally close to the posterior pharyngeal wall. Since air passes through this space with difficulty, the snorer must breathe through his/her mouth (arrow).
