We have chosen the Snoreeze Nasal Strips, as apart from having much success in our trials, PFL Healthcare who own the Snoreeze brand, are a very responsible company who put their customer's health above sales, and always warn people that if they believe their symptoms of snoring could be a sign of sleep apnoea, then to seek medical help.
Another priority when choosing the Snoreeze brand opposed to many others, is that these are Latex-Free, which is very important for a lot of people with allergies!
Benefits of Using Snoreeze Nasal Strips:-
Helps open up the nasal passages for better nasal breathing, especially during times of colds and allergies, or any other reason for nasal stuffiness.
It's a known fact that nasal breathing is far healthier for us, so using products such as nasal strips that increase nasal airflow encourages nasal breathing - especially in people who struggle with this.
The Snoreeze nasal strips are both latex-free and hypoallergenic, unlike many competitive strips on the market.
For CPAP and non-invasive ventilator users, it can be challenging using a mask with a blocked nose, which is why many people do need that added help from nasal strips.
Whilst not a 100% guarantee for everyone as it will depend on factors like clean or oily skin, but during our trials we found these Snoreeze nasal strips adhered to the skin well - even with high CPAP pressures.
As well as night time use, nasal strips are helpful during exercise to encourage nasal breathing.
Helps minimise snoring if caused by nasal issues.
To check if the Snoreeze Nasal Strips may help:-
Dr Steven Park, ENT and Sleep Consultant and author of 'Sleep Interrupted' and 'Totally CPAP' which we sell here at the charity has provided the following experiment to see if nasal strips may work:
Take both index fingers and press them just besides your nostrils on your cheek.
Whilst firmly pressing on your cheeks, lift the cheek skin upwards and sideways, pointing towards the outer corners of your eyes.
Take a deep breath in to see if you can breathe better through your nose. Repeat several times.
If this manoeuvre works for you then you may benefit from using nasal strips.
PFL Healthcare say:-
Snoreeze Nasal Strips target snoring caused by a cold, allergies or a blocked nose. Their flexible bands gently open the airways and improve airflow to provide effective relief for up to 8 hours.
• Targets snoring caused by a cold, allergies or a blocked nose,
- Wash and dry nose (ensuring there are no remnants of facial products like moisturisers etc)
- Apply a single Snoreeze Nasal Strip across the bridge of the nose as in the following image (taking care not to place too high or too low).
- For external use only.
- Keep out of reach of small children.
- Do not place over damaged skin. If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately.
- Do not use for more than 12 hours per day.
There is no guaranteed ‘cure’ for snoring (if this is why you are purchasing them). However, Snoreeze Nasal Strips can relieve the symptoms of snoring to help provide a peaceful night’s sleep for you and your partner. Snoreeze Nasal Strips are not a cure for sleep apnoea (a related respiratory medical condition).
You may be suffering from sleep apnoea if you stop breathing during sleep, wake-up tired or fall asleep easily during the day.
If you experience any of these symptoms it is recommended that you consult your doctor.
There are 20 individually wrapped nasal strips in each box and they are available in either Small-Medium or Large.
Unfortunately, we are not able to supply these oral strips with zero rated VAT relief for people with chronic medical conditions, due to the fact that they are classified as a snoring product, even though they may help people with sleep apnoea. Therefore, VAT will be added at checkout.
