Scientists Design Device to Stop Snoring
Most people don’t get enough sleep at night. For many people being sleep deprived means not functioning as well as they could be, but for millions of other people – mainly men – lack of sleep is a sign of a serious health condition. People who are suffering from exhaustion, high blood pressure and inexplicable headaches are all showing symptoms
Snoring actually causes your man to wake up throughout the night. For most, snoring is simply a case of having to move their body from a bad position into one that’s more comfortable to breathe in. But for the 18 million people in the United States suffering from OSA, snoring is their body’s cry for help. Throughout the night, people with OSA literally stop breathing. They stop breathing because the muscles in their mouth, jaw, and throat relax, blocking the free flow of air in the airway. These moments of suffocation can last for up to an entire minute. A person with OSA wakes up hundreds of times during a single night as their bodies try not to suffocate. Snoring is actually your man’s body’s only way to get enough air to breathe.
The result is that when people with OSA get out of bed in the morning, they feel like they haven’t slept at all. And it’s true—they have not had a full sleep cycle. Not only are their bodies exhausted, they have opened up an entire range of new health problems that are associated with this extreme sleep loss, including heart attacks, depression, strokes, memory loss, acid reflux and diabetes.
In the past, there weren’t that many treatment options available for people with sleep apnea. They could go and get an expensive diagnosis, and then drop several thousand dollars visiting a sleep clinic that would require overnight visit. One of the possible outcomes for such patients would be having to strap themselves into a CPAP breathing device for the entire night. CPAP is a breathing masks attached to an explosive tank next to your bed. At times, they would have to undergo a painful and invasive surgery.
Now there is a chin strap that can provide the needed solution. It’s a comfortable and affordable treatment for OSA that keeps your man’s breathing passages open while he wears it in bed. This treatment method has been found to be effective in a recent study at the Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine and it is clinically tested and doctor approved. It works by keeping the jaw and tongue from loosening up, thereby keeping the airway unobstructed. Made from lightweight materials with the maximum comfort in mind, the chin strap has helped thousands of men and their wife get the sleep that their bodies have always needed at night.
There is assurance the chin strap will solve all of your man’s sleep apnea troubles, no matter what the reason may be. It’s not just about getting a full night’s sleep for your man and you; it’s about getting to sleep in a way that is comfortable for him.
