Simple snoring is a very common problem that presents a number of different challenges. The initial difficulty is in confirming the presence of snoring, next one must exclude any other nocturnal respiratory pathology and finally a decision as to an appropriate treatment must be made. There are many different ways of achieving these objectives, but no one-way has a clear advantage in terms of both accuracy and cost effectiveness. In this review the authors do not intend to give a didactic method for the management of simple snoring but to discuss the pros and cons of various different options in order to help physicians make a choice based on local priorities. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd.
