Snoring is often not a delibitating condition. But this does not negate the fact that its effects can range from keeping you or your bed partner awake during the night up to causing you daytime irritation. Not much of a trouble right? Yes, for the mean time.
If you would not want to take the risks of letting the effects of snoring distract you both on your waking and sleeping hours, you can avail of the various snoring solutions that are sure to provide some relief.
Since the simplest sock-covered tennis ball stitched on a snorer’s pajama top, many snoring devices has already emerged. In fact, there are some 300 patented devices for which the number of variations is unknown. Thus, you are sure to find one solution that will fit your preferences.
In this article, we will site some of the basic snoring solutions. You will find that some are quite simplistic in creating solutions but many are rather intensive and would require careful decisions.
One basic product that you would find under a number of manufacturers’ names are the nasal breathing aids.
These snoring solutions aim to facilitate better breathing through the nose. Thus, such products only target problems that are directly linked with nasal difficulties. However, if you are breathing well enough with your nose, then you might find your luck with other devices. Nevertheless, we will try to discuss here some of the varieties and their uses.
Nasal breathing devices can best help those who breathe using their mouths. This is specially helpful when you are just starting with shifting your breathing from nasal to mouth both at night and day time.
Remember that these nasal breathing devices would not give you the final cure nor would they provide the all-in-one package solution. You will need to make some changes that would help deliver better treatment. You may need to practice yourself with exercises in breathing or create ways to keep your jaw from falling while sleeping.
The most common nasal breathing aids are the nasal strips. These are patterned on band-aid designs only differing with two flat plastic bands. These are worn across the nose which then create a pulling effect on the nostrils to keep them wide. You may have seen devices like these used by athletes to help them breathe freer during competitions.
Nasal braces, on the other hand, are breathing devices that are inserted into the nose to help create wider air passages. The advantage of these is that they dontt fall off more easily than nasal strips.
A number of nose clips have mechanisms that can facilitate better blood flow and can energize nasal tissues to help in keeping the passages open.
If you would not want the inconvenience of these devices, you can go for an air-blower like solution. This is known as Continuous Positive Air Pressure or CPAP. More refined products using its principle are the AutoPAP and the BiPAP for which attachments and settings can create breathing possible after you have stopped breathing yourself (these are most effective for sleep apnea sufferers).
Some nasal breathing products are especially engineered for specific snorers. Be careful not to go for anything that you find pleasing or convenient, careful analysis must be done or you may seek guidance first from your physician.
