REVIEWS - We have allowed reviews to show, even though these are just limited trials, so whilst it's clear to see when people have had instant success, bear in mind that with the negative ones the people only had a trial of a maximum of 2 nights, which is not always long enough to get used to a new product.  Hopefully, the reviews will still be helpful though, and we are currently collecting survey responses which will be available to review at the end of the trials.

This is a sample of the SleepSeal Inhalation Valve, which are designed to help prevent mouth leaks when using CPAP or Non-invasive Ventilation.

SleepSeal say:-

The SleepSeal Inhalation and Open Valve devices have been found to be highly effective in keeping the lips closed in many individuals who experience mouth leaks while using CPAP or other forms of positive pressure therapy.

In addressing mouth leaks, it can provide a more successful alternative to chin straps or full face masks and commonly completely eliminates mouth leaks.

This valve allows the user to breathe in comfortably as needed, while maintaining the natural lip seal during sleep to prevent mouth leaks and air escape out of the mouth during the night. It contains a one-way valve that directs air into the mouth if the user needs to breathe in, while prohibiting passive exhalation or air leakage. The user is able to forcefully exhale as needed. This valve can be used with CPAP or other PAP therapy to reduce or prevent mouth leaks.

INSTRUCTIONS:-

  1. Before wearing the device, make sure you do not have any residual makeup, oils, vaseline or anything else around your lips that could prevent the adhesive backing from sealing.  Your mouth and lips need to be very dry.
  2. Remove the plastic backing from the device to expose the tape.  Be careful not to tear the flaps.
  3. Close your mouth and lips normally.
  4. Position the device's valve centred directly over closed, unpursed lips and firmly press the valve into the lips.
  5. Firmly press and rub the tape starting from the valve and lip area in an outward direction until all of the tape is sealed well onto the lips and skin surrounding the mouth.
  6. Breathe normally through the nose.

THE SLEEPSEAL DEVICES ARE NOT A TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNEA; THEY ARE ONLY DEVICES DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN THE NATURAL LIP SEAL THAT NORMALLY OCCURS DURING SLEEP, IN INDIVIDUALS WHOSE MOUTHS FALL OPEN DURING SLEEP.

Fantastic Product
Wednesday, 23 October 2019  | 

Using this product for one night helped me so much. I had no air leaks from my mouth so my sats monitor did not beep. It's amazing, the only reason I never gave it a five star rating is because it was slightly too big. I had the large size and I think the medium size would be perfect. I'm so impressed with this product that I've ordered through a friend in America who is going to post it to me. It's made my life so much easier. Mx

It's great to hear how beneficial the SleepSeal is for you Margaret😊 We did only have the large size when you ordered the free sample, but the manufacturer is sending us more over in the medium size and have confirmed they should be ready to purchase here in the UK in February.

Promising as a way of stopping mouth leaks in CPAP therapy, but vendor's website is said by my my anti-virus to possibly harbour malware

Trial of sample Sleepseal valve
Monday, 24 June 2019  | 

I used the sample Sleepseal with the Dreamwisp nasal mask to see if it would help stop air escaping from my mouth (I had tried the Dreamwisp nasal mask previously using my chin strap, but without success, so had returned to using my Full-face mask). Although the Sleepseal successfully kept my mouth closed, I found it disconcerting not being able to move my mouth or lick my lips. I also felt concerned about not being able to speak if I needed to, and felt that the mouth seal would be difficult to take it off in a hurry (even with the tabs). I did persist with it for a while, but as soon as I started to relax, even though it kept my mouth closed, my cheeks and lips puffed out like a balloon. Others might respond differently to it, but it seems that as I relax, my airway simply opens up to my mouth, and the difference between the cpap pressure in my mouth and the lower atmospheric pressure in the room caused my cheeks to puff out. At that point a small amount of air started to escape through the pores of the Sleepseal, and it began to get a bit damp. All in all, it was very uncomfortable and not a great success; there is no way I could sleep like that.

Thanks for your detailed review and it's a shame these didn't work for you, as they won't work for everyone, so it's great the manufacturer has provided us with these free samples.
It may be worth you trying the Dr Dakota Neck Cushion on the website to support the jaw and encourage nasal breathing when it's possible - especially for people who prefer nasal masks.

These definitely work and are very effective at keeping your mouth shut for the whole night. I found it comfortable, easy to use and remove.

It seems to work. I managed 17/20 on my ResMed CPAP
In the 67 nights I have been using it I have only bettered that once and my recent scores, with a few exceptions, are well under 8.
This seems to confirm there is a mouth leak and this piece of kit solves it.

SleepSeal Inhalation Valve
Monday, 10 December 2018  | 

Sorry but this didnít work for me. Made no difference to sleep quality and was uncomfortable to wear. Left what felt like the beginnings of a cold sore on my top lip although it cleared within a few hours. Only had two samples so perhaps more time to adapt might have shown some improvement.

Shame your experience wasn't good Edgar, but like you say it's difficult to judge on a short trial, and you're welcome to order some more samples to have another try.

Not for me.
Thursday, 29 November 2018  | 

On receiving the SleepSeals in the post I thought that it was a brilliant solution to help with the problem of mouth breathing and I was very eager to try them out but sadly when I tried one I found that it was impossible to speak with it attached.

I feel for some people this wouldn't be an issue but as I am disabled and not able to use my hands to remove it and if I needed to call my carer I wouldn't be able to shout out I found this too worrying. I did also find that it made me feel slightly claustrophobic but again it was only because I knew that I couldn't remove it and it made me feel that I might panic.

Thanks for your fair and honest review Sharon. Shame they didn't work for you, even though many people do love them. Truly understand your issues and was worth a try.

Amazing!!!
Thursday, 8 November 2018  | 

Tried this product out a couple of nights ago and my verdict is......simply amazing!!!! I've been trying to become a 'nose breather' for a good few months now and this is extremely helpful. I was cautious about putting a seal on my mouth overnight, but once it was on it felt comfortable and natural. I woke up feeling better than usual. This is definitely a product i will be purchasing once available. Just hope the manufacturers put a reasonable price on it as it is single-use.

ORDERS

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.  Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.

All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders.   International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.  


RETURNS

Masks and most products cannot be exchanged, unless faulty, due to health and hygiene issues, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations, (as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions' ) and where you will find our return address, so if you are unsure about any product please contact us BEFORE purchase or BEFORE opening a sealed packet.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage.  This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
