Why Nozovent Helps Snorers
There are several reasons for snoring while sleeping. A common reason is that there is insufficient air coming through the nostrils. The air passage is most confined in the nostrils, with a cross-sectional area of only one-fourth of the area deeper inside the nose. This implies that the resistance to inhaled air on its way to the lungs is normally greatest at the front of the nose.
By dilating the nostrils with Nozovent, more air flows via the nose, the underpressure in the chest can diminish to 2 cm and it takes less energy to breathe. The speed of the air through the nose lessens and becomes gentler, and the palate cannot vibrate as easily. Nozovent increases the cross-sectional area in the front part of the nose from approximately 1.4 cm to 2 cm.
How Widespread is the Problem of Snoring?
It was previously thought that 10 percent of the population snored. It is now thought to be considerably more: 20-30 percent have problems with snoring. In special cases, snoring can lead to a temporary suspension of respiration, apnea, with severe consequences, such as strokes, heart attacks and high blood pressure. Dr. Ulf Höijer from Gothenburg has currently presented a medical report in which he proves that Nozovent has a positive effect on apnea patients.
Are There Other Advantages With Nozovent?
When the nostrils are dilated with Nozovent, it is not necessary to breathe through the mouth, and one can continue to breathe through the nose. The air one breathes in can then be warmed up by the nose, as it should be. It is always a little more difficult to breathe through the nose when lying down. With Nozovent, it is easier to breathe, and it takes less effort to get the air down into the lungs.
Does Nozovent Suit Everyone?
Nozovent is designed to suit most noses. To prevent it from dropping out, the slightly cup-shaped sides gently press to the skin on the inside of the nostrils. The surfaces are specially designed to improve friction to the skin. The lower part is molded to the shape of the nose, so that the front nasal chamber holds it up. There is no risk of nose bleeding. Once Nozovent has been inserted for a few minutes, it leaves no sensation.
Better Sleep, Fresh Mouth, Test Results
A total of 80 percent of a group of 50 people using Nozovent during the night thought that their sleep had improved. Sixty percent wanted to use it every night.
Many of the participants in the test often slept with their mouths open previously, and often woke up in the morning with dry throats. Approximately 30 percent of these complaints diminished completely, and a further 50 percent had less discomfort after using Nozovent.
In a study with 10 heavy snorers, snoring diminished significantly. Of 50 nights, 14 were completely free of any snoring whatsoever. On the average, the level of snoring fell from powerful to slight—that is, from an almost unendurable noise to a slight murmur.
In another investigation concerning 17 snorers, the pattern was the same. Most people snored less with Nozovent. Nights without Nozovent were strongly disturbed by snoring in 20 percent of cases, in comparison with 1 percent, when Nozovent was used.
In a Japanese study by Professor Shinkawe from Tokai University with a test group of 15 heavy snorers, the snoring diminished significantly from an average of considerable disturbance to light snoring when sleeping with Nozovent.
Which Materials are Used in Nozovent?
Nozovent is environmentally safe and transforms to water and oxygen upon combustion. It is manufactured from non-toxic medicinal plastic (UPC Class VI Plastic) approved for introduction by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration).
Is Nozovent Useful for Other Purposes?
Joggers, cyclists, skiers and other sports enthusiasts use Nozovent regularly. In cold weather, breathing through the mouth can result in the severe chilling of the windpipe, which reduces performance. Colder, drier and occasionally dusty air enters the windpipe and may cause coughing. Nozovent increases the passage of air through the nose by up to 50 percent. This enables more physical exercise to be carried out with the mouth closed.
Another advantage for runners, for example, is that the mouth stays moist when breathing through the nose. This does away with dryness of the throat, which often comes from jogging.
When they cycled without Nozovent and began to breathe through the mouth, the systolic pressure increased by an average of 85 mm Hg. At the same load, when cycling with Nozovent, this pressure only increased by 70 mm Hg.
