Snoring in Afghanistan

One of the joys of being in an education company is hearing the clinical anecdotes from course and conference participants. Some really make you think, some go onto initiate research projects.

One of our course participants tells of a young man in the Australian SAS – an elite military regiment. When he’s at home in Australia he snores loudly enough “to strip the paint off the walls”.  When he’s on deployment such as in Afghanistan and living in a hole surrounded by a few sandbags, he doesn’t snore at all.

Does the brain consider it dangerous to snore in those circumstances? When asleep?

    Oh that most beautiful and second most favorite organ of mine as Woody Allen once said. Just the other day I was putting in my contact lenses and was so relieved when the first one was in and I could now see clearly to insert the second. Only when the second lense was in place did I realise that the first lense was still on the end of my finger …….
