If you have ever slept in the same room with someone who snores, you will understand how difficult it is to get a good nights’ sleep. However, as frustrating as it may be for you, spare a thought for how the person who’s snoring is suffering.
People who snore, generally do not sleep very well, and as people age, their snoring can become more serious. Approximately, one-half of people who snore loudly have obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea occurs when they sleep, by way of their muscles of their throat relaxing, their tongue falling backwards, and their throat becoming narrower and “floppy.” This is when they will more than likely require a Sleep Apnea Mask, which uses an Anti-Snoring Chin Strap.
What are the health risks associated with Snoring?
People who snore may develop more serious health side-effects, which include:
- Interruptions in their breathing
- Frequently waking from sleep
- Very light sleeping patterns
- Strain on the heart, by way of high blood pressure
- Drowsiness, which can affect one’s ability to drive a car or work effectively
How to reduce snoring
There are many remedies to reduce or even eliminate snoring, and the most common ways which are non-invasive or don’t require breathing aids are as follows:
- Reduce your weight
- Healthy eating
- Sleep on your side and not on your back
- Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking
But if none of the above Anti-Snoring Remedies don’t provide any benefits, and Snoring is getting worse, then Sleeping Aids will be recommended.
When Sleep Apnea Therapy is the answer
For Sleep Apnea sufferers, CPAP therapy is the most common treatment solution to alleviate the condition. When commencing this therapy, there are many considerations that patients need to consider, like the type of CPAP mask they will use. In fact, there are three common types of CPAP masks including Full Face Masks, Nasal Pillows and Nasal Masks.
The three different types of CPAP Masks are designed to treat the variety of Sleep Apnea conditions, depending on how bad their snoring condition is.
CPAP headgear is used to help keep the Sleep Apnea Mask secure during the evening, whilst you sleep. To prevent allergies and to increase comfort for the patient, medical grade, latex-free fabric with antibacterial properties are utilised.
Anti-Snoring Chin Straps are made with Latex Free Medical Grade Fabric, which is the same material used in CPAP Headgear. CPAP Anti-Snoring Chin Straps are one of the types of CPAP headgear used to hold the Sleep Apnea masks in place.
Anti-Snoring Chin Straps are made with high quality medical grade fabrics. For example, Latex Free CPAP Headgear Mask Fabric is the material Biomed uses in its manufacturing process. It minimises patient discomfort and eliminates skin irritation.
Anti-Snoring Chin Restraints for Sleep Apnea help improve the effectiveness of CPAP therapy by ensuring the mouth does not fall open during sleep. Again, durable, lightweight and stretchy hypoallergenic fabrics are used to manufacture CPAP Chin Straps, ensuring maximum comfort and reliability for the patient. The Anti-Snoring Chin Strap wraps around the head and cradles the jaw, in-order to keep the patients’ mouth closed during sleep. This reduces snoring considerably.
An Anti-Snoring Chin Strap, must incorporate high quality Anti-Bacterial Fabric, which is comfortable in design, but also allows the patient to move freely without irritating the skin and is also strong enough to support the jaw, without being restrictive in feel.
It is also worth noting that a Chin Strap to Reduce Snoring, may also cause head-aches, as a result from the chin strap being too tight, so it is extremely important to choose a quality Anti-Snoring Chin Strap that is well suited to your face.
