Nasal DilatorSleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by a pause in breathing. Similarly, many people with sleep-breathing problems already sleep on their sides or stomachs already for the following reasons: Due to various degrees of jaw narrowing, the tongue and voice box (which grow to their normal size), takes up too much space inside the mouth.
Metabolic gas analysis was not performed in this study because the more practical comparison we were seeking (LT) did not require this measurement and because we lacked the specific mask that would allow for oronasal breathing during the oxygen consumption test.
A method for delivering a nasal spray into a patient's nose includes the steps of providing the nasal spray delivery guide, inserting the guide elements at least partially into respective nostrils of the patient, inserting at least a portion of a nasal spray delivery device into one of the guide elements, and activating the nasal spray delivery device to deliver a nasal spray to a lateral wall of the respective nasal cavity.
30. A nasal dilator defined in claim 29: and said UV-spring comprising substantially flat spring material prebent into a UV-shape in its free position; and centering means comprising, an aperture at the center of said nasal strip, and projecting means at the center of said UV-spring disposed to enter said aperture, for enabling the wearer to readily align said center of said nasal strip with said center of said UV-spring when installing each new nasal strip.
The report also focuses on global major leading industry players of Global External Nasal Dilator market providing information such as company profiles, product picture and specification, capacity, production, price, cost, revenue and contact information.
The butterfly and BRNS strips showed significant (P < 0.05) improvement versus placebo on PIRS satisfaction with sleep at day 7 least square (LS) mean changes: − 0.7, − 0.6, and − 0.2, respectively, and the butterfly strip also showed significant improvement from baseline on this outcome versus placebo at day 14 (− 1.0 vs − 0.5). On the NRQLQ, both the butterfly prototype and BRNS clear were more effective than placebo in improving symptoms on waking at day 7 (LS mean changes: − 7.9, − 7.2, and − 4.1, respectively); the BRNS clear was significantly more effective than placebo in improving sleep problems at day 7 (− 7.4 vs − 4.2). There were no between-treatment differences on the CQ7.
Despite more oxygen entering the lungs, because of the low CO2 level, less oxygen actually makes it to the cells that need it. This overbreathing could be triggered by stress, anxiety, nasal congestion, allergies and other triggers and factors which cause people to breathe more frequently and deeply than their body would otherwise.
Today's nasal dilators are typically available OTC at retail stores and from the manufacturer's website, and some can be purchased wholesale by sleep professionals for retailing to patients (of course, rules and regulations must be checked before retailing OTC products at your practice).
Since the soft foam pads 12 take a permanent set after several months, the contact units 11 should be replaced every 15-30 days with the new units merely by pulling the pads off the contact portions 3, and the new units are forced onto contact-portions 3 which are inserted into the pocket formed by the film 13. The nasal strips should be replaced daily for good hygiene.
A questionnaire was designed to evaluate the level of satisfaction with the given treatment and included questions regarding the impact of the treatment on sleep quality, feelings upon waking, difficulty falling asleep, and satisfaction with the treatment effect concerning daytime sleepiness.
21. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 6; and said flexible nasal strip also including small non-adhesive portions at the very ends thereof, to enable easy peeling of said adhesive segment by the wearer for removal thereof from said outer surfaces of said nostril walls.
3. A nasal dilator comprising in combination: spreading means having a portion for insertion in the nasal opening to act on at least one nostril wall of the wearer for increasing said nasal opening to improve the breathing of the wearer; and retaining means including a flexible strip operatively connected to said spreading means and having adhesive means adapted to be pressed onto the outer nasal surface by the wearer, for preventing said dilator from falling out of said nasal opening.
