No.
If the snore is part of a RERA, then yes, but not stand alone snore arousals. Heck there are no rules for snoring or what constitutes a snore.

so , when scoring an epoch with no detected events , other than snoring and one arousal , this arousal will be scored spontaneous arousal ?

Hard to be accurate without seeing the epochs. In general though, if snoring causes an arousal, it is a respiratory-related arousal. May not fit every criteria.

REMBD,
Your system offers the label "Snore Arousal"? If it does categorize it as such. More differentiation cannot hurt. I have always believed that we should start our PSG reports from the arousals perspective and differentiate their etiology.
Spontaneous
EKG
Snoring
Limb
Periodic Limb
Hypopnea
Central Apnea
Obs Apnea

Of course the resp events tag supersedes the snore event, since the snore is part and parcel of the resp event.

What system? It is more likely that someone put a "comment tag" that says "snore arousal" than that is an actual part of your PSG software. Any system allows for customized tags, "tech in room" etc.
