Nasal Dilator OnlineIt is usually amusing to hear a person snore. Abstract: The present invention provides a nasal dilator including: two intranasal stents (1) and a connecting band (2), wherein each of two ends of the connecting band (2) being symmetrically connected to one intranasal stent (1), each intranasal stent (1) having an elastic band-shape structure, each intranasal stent (1) has a straight-line shape, an arc-line shape, a bow shape, or a fold-line shape in a cross section perpendicular to a width direction of the elastic banded structure, each intranasal stent (1), along a length direction of the elastic band-shape structure, comprises: a nasal septum supporting section (3), a bending section (4), and a nasal alar dilating section (5), each intranasal stent (1) has a generally C-shape in a cross-section perpendicular to a central axis of nasal passages, wherein an opening of the C-shape faces towards a nasal base (11).
Researchers found limited evidence showing that nasal dilator strips and nasal clips relieve obstruction in the nasal valve and could be potential alternatives to surgical intervention, according to a systematic review published recently in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.
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.
To install the dilator of the present invention, the contact-portions 3 of the UV-spring 1 are inserted into the two nostrils so the lower ends of the contact-portions with pads 3 a are just visible, or if more comfortable, install just above or near the nasal flange area.
24. A Nasendilatator as defined in claim 6: and pad means made of resilient material with a smooth surface and adapted to be connected to each of said leg portions at said contact portions thereof to provide the only contact of said leg-portions with said inner surfaces of said nostril walls; and said pad means including mounting means for attaching said pad means to said contact portions of each of said leg-portions and for removal therefrom, for enabling the wearer to replace said pad means whenever said resilient material takes an unacceptable permanent set.
These findings are consistent with those of a previous open-label study that reported significant improvements in subjective measures of sleep during use of the BRNS: in adults with a history of snoring, the BRNS reduced daytime sleepiness on the Stanford Sleepiness Scale (P < 0.01); improved sleep quality; reduced number of awakenings and sleepiness upon awakening; and improved morning concentration (all P < 0.05) 20 However, while the global sleep assessments performed in the current study were all highly significant (P ≤ 0.002), there is an apparent lack of correlation between these subjective findings and many of the objective (PSG) measures of sleep, as no significant improvements were detected via PSG, including for arousals per hour, sleep efficiency, and sleep onset latency.
23. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 6: and said UV-spring comprising substantially flat spring material, and said UV-spring and said flexible nasal strip including centering means for enabling the wearer to readily align the center of said nasal strip with the center of said UV-spring when installing each new nasal strip.
The application site reactions consisted of a mark on the nose followed by a sore nose and nose tender to the touch 3 days later in one subject, bruising across the bridge of the nose in one subject, and skin abrasion in one subject, all of which were considered highly probably related to treatment, and one subject had broken skin on the nose above the strip placement that was considered possibly related to treatment.
Johnson adds that for snoring that may occur as a result of positional issues, the combination of a positional device that promotes supine sleeping and Mute can improve airflow through the upper airway and they may work well together to address the issue.
Although we would do nearly anything for a peaceful night of quality sleep, do your research before buying any anti-snoring product A product that is found in many CVS pharmacies across the United States is Theravent Although not a nasal dilator, it has been shown to reduce snoring for some users that snore through their nose because it encourages mouth breathing instead.
