One of the most common reasons for continued nasal congestion despite allergy medications and even nasal surgery is due to flimsy nostrils. 5. A nasal dilator comprising in combination: a UV-shaped spring having a central portion and two leg-portions for insertion in the nasal opening and acting on the two nostril walls for increasing said nasal opening otolaryngology doctors to improve the breathing of the wearer; and retaining means including a flexible member connected to said UV-shaped spring at a central portion thereof and extending along both of said leg-portions and having adhesive means adapted to be pressed onto the outer nasal surface by the wearer to prevent said dilator from falling out of said nasal opening.
21. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 6; and said flexible nasal strip also including small non-adhesive portions at the very ends thereof, to enable easy peeling of said adhesive segment by the wearer for removal thereof from said outer surfaces of said nostril walls.
In this study, as a way to attenuate the CPAP pressure collateral effects and able to improve the adhesion to the treatment (since pressure is equal to force on surface), 15 patients were submitted to the new pressure volumetric analysis by means of polissonography performed with the use of an intranasal metallic dilator (Rinostent), previously adapted to each patient examined for inclusion in the study, by considering that an increase on the surface diminishes the pressure.
This invention is related to nasal dilators and particularly to a surgically implantable nasal dilator, having an internal generally open "V"-shaped skeleton structure encased within an external biocompatible covering material, which urges the wall tissues of the nasal passageways outward, thereby opening the nasal passageways and reducing the likelihood of nasal passageway blockage during inhalation.
Methods: In this randomized, double-blind study, subjects with chronic nasal congestion and sleep difficulties were assigned a BRNS clear strip, an asymmetric butterfly prototype, or an asymmetric butterfly placebo strip without springs, to use nightly for 2 weeks.
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.
Although we would do nearly anything for a peaceful night of quality sleep, do your research before buying any anti-snoring product A product that is found in many CVS pharmacies across the United States is Theravent Although not a nasal dilator, it has been shown to reduce snoring for some users that snore through their nose because it encourages mouth breathing instead.
For snorers who breathe through the mouth even though the nasal passage is open and cannot correct this condition, then as a last resort, a direct solution for mouth-breathing is better than nothing—at least the noise and energy-loss are often eliminated.
23. A nasal dilator as defined in claim 6: and said UV-spring comprising substantially flat spring material, and said UV-spring and said flexible nasal strip including centering means for enabling the wearer to readily align the center of said nasal strip with the center of said UV-spring when installing each new nasal strip.
