Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Intubation & Sore Throat

Intubation caused me to stop snoring
Several years ago I had carotid surgery and was intubated. Ever since then my snoring has ceased. I use to snore so loud it would rock the house and my wife had a difficult time falling asleep if I fell asleep first. Use to have to get separate hotel rooms when travelling with our kids because of the noise I created. I have been searching for an answer to "why" and have not found anything definitive. When I brought this fact to the attention of my doctor he just shrugs his shoulders.

After my surgery I had a sore throat for several weeks and did notice that my voice projection was not as robust as it had been. I'm delighted with the fact that my snoring has ended. I sleep much better and so does my family, I just want to know why.

I conject that the laryngoscope somehow modified/damaged some soft tissue in the back of my throat that was causing the snoring, but still am seeking a definitive answer. Has anyone else experienced snoring cessation after intubation?
