Is Nasal Dilator The Right Snoring Solution For You?

If you snore, surgery should be a last resort when searching for a cure. 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).
Overnight polysomnography was performed in the sleep laboratory (EMBLA; Flagra hf. Medical Devices, Reykjavik, Iceland) and included electroencephalography, electrooculography, electromyography, oximetry, measurements of airflow (oronasal thermistor and pressure cannula), and measurements of the rib cage and abdominal movements during breathing.



In 1999, Chinevere et al 26 compared the effects of different modes in the respiratory pattern in four healthy men and six women who were submitted to five maximum tests: treadmill breathing through the nose, nose + dilator, mouth, nose + mouth, and nose + mouth + dilator.
30. A nose 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 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.

Moreover, the external nasal dilators are widely available in all popular online websites as over-the-counter (OTC) devices such as and Some examples of the product include Breathe Right by GlaxoSmithKline, Breathe Clear by HealthRight Products, and Equate Clear Nasal Strips by Walmart.
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.

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,
