Nasal Dilator In Cases Of Nasal ObstructionThe AIRMAX® Nasal Dilator for better sleep and better breathing is supplied by McKeon Products, Inc - a health care products provider for over 50 years. In this exploratory study, both the asymmetric butterfly prototype and the currently marketed BRNS clear strip significantly improved some subjective measures of nasal congestion and sleep compared with placebo in subjects with moderate to severe chronic nocturnal nasal congestion and sleep difficulties.
Embedded within the device are two plastic strips that apply 20-25 g of outward pull on the nostrils and increase the dimensions of the nasal airway passages ( 1,18 ). Despite variability in the results, several studies have demonstrated an overall decrease in the resistance to airflow during nasal breathing and increased inspiratory volume ( 9,15,21,29 ). The importance of this finding was articulated by Gehring et al. ( 11 ), who speculated that the increased inspiratory volume during nasal breathing could theoretically translate into energetic advantage during sports.
7. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 5, and said flexible strip also including at least one non-adhesive segment between said two end-adhesive segments, for enabling the wearer to install said dilator without the fingers contacting said two adhesive segments and to determine the portion of the nose subjected to said end adhesive segments.
In the review, they were divided into four categories: external nasal dilators worn over the bridge of the nose; internal nasal stents placed into each nostril; clips noson positioned over the nasal septum; and septal stimulators that apply pressure to the nasal septum to increase circulation in the area and help open nasal passages.
The treatments were based on normal breathing, use of an END (Respir+®; Kentia Diffusion; Boulogne, France), an internal nasal dilator (Nozovent; Prevancure; Ste Pouret, Paris, France), and 0.05% of nasal decongestant (tymazoline hydrochloride; Pernazene; Synthelabo; le Plessis-Robinson, France).
By contrast, because in the present invention the spring-force is independent of the stick-force, the adhesive-area on the skin and the stick-force can inherently be much smaller than for all external dilators, since the adhesive only must keep the dilator from falling out, as discussed.
36. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 31: and said flexible nasal strip also including small non-adhesive portions at the very ends of said strip, to enable easy peeling of said adhesive segments near the two ends of said strip by the wearer for removal thereof from said outer surfaces of said two nostril walls.
More specifically, my invention is intended to cover any kind of nasal dilator with a UV-member such as a spring having two leg-portions to be inserted in the nostrils without contacting the septum and retained by any kind of flexible member connected to the spring at its center which includes adhesive means to hold the dilator in place, all to cause the nostrils to open more for reducing snoring.
The direct widening of the nasal entrance has a positive effect on snoring , nasal congestion due to colds or allergies and sleep apnoea Many women have reported using Airmax® during their pregnancy to relieve nasal congestion as a result of changes is their endocrine system.
While our study was limited to 2 weeks, a prior randomized, controlled 4-week study of nasal dilator strip use by nonobese patients with mild to moderate sleep-disordered breathing and sleep-maintenance insomnia (N = 91) found that the strip was associated with large improvements in the severity of insomnia and sleep quality, and moderate improvements in sleepiness and quality of life scores on patient-reported outcome scales (Insomnia Severity Index, PSQI, FOSQ, and Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire) 15 While longer-term follow-up is lacking, the results of the current trial and the 4-week study show no indication that the potential benefits of nasal dilator strips wane over time with nightly use.
According to snorers in a market-study, almost all of the people in the study have used external dilators now on the market, and they all advised that these dilators provide only a slight improvement in breathing (because of the inherent limitation explained above).
Persons, who have a pollen or dust allergy, find effective respiratory support in a nasal dilator with an integrated breathing air filter These nose vents come with a filter that absorbs pollutant particles, such as pollen, dust and smoke and keeps them away from your airways.
