CPAP A-Z

What is CPAP?

1480269908_tick_mark_dark

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is a system that uses air pressure to help people with certain conditions such as sleep apnea, breathe at night.

CPAP is used to treat other conditions as well,  such as with infants whose lungs have failed to develop, but the focus of this article will be in using CPAP for sleep apnea.

I have written a very detailed guide to sleep apnea here but essentially sleep apnea is a condition that stops people breathing properly at night.

With CPAP, a continuous flow of air is pushed into the back of a person’s throat via a mask.

This air pressure helps to keep the airway open (at the back of the throat) which helps the person to breath properly.

The system has three elements to it

  1. A mask. There are several different types of masks but they tend to be worn around the nose or the nose and the mouth.
  2. A tube. That connects the mask to the ventilator.
  3. A ventilator. This is a small machine (about the size of a lunchbox) that has a pump in it that creates a flow of air.

Some of the numbers around sleep apnea and CPAP make for some very sad reading.

Of course, exact numbers are almost impossible to come by but approximately 18 million Americans have sleep apnea but it might be as high as 30 million Americans who are suffering from it.

Approximately only 1 in 4 people with the condition seek medical treatment for it.

In it’s severest form, sleep apnea is a killer with some experts believing that  “Untreated severe apnea can take 10 to 15 years off someone’s life”.

In its milder forms, sleep apnea could still cause many unpleasant complications such as; developing high blood pressure, an increased risk of having a stroke or heart attack and developing type 2 diabetes.

Added to the tragedy of those numbers, is the fact that even when people do seek treatment for sleep apnea and are prescribed CPAP and provided with all the equipment, a study in 2008 showed that 46%- 83% of people with a diagnosis of sleep apnea failed to use their CPAP equipment!

So, why is CPAP so unpopular?

Whilst there are a number of possible reasons for this, there is a lack of any real research into why so few people use their CPAP machines consistently.

Our bedrooms should be the most comfortable and relaxing room in the house and no matter how small or unobstrusive the CPAP equipment is, it is still highly intrusive and effects people on many levels.

  1. CPAP equipment interferes with intimacy.
  1. People complain that wearing a mask (despite the many designs that are available) makes them feel claustrophic.

2. The different types of masks can cause irritation or pain.

3. The masks can leak which can leave some people struggling to breath and other people with a jet of air irritating them.

4. The straps or headgear that hold the mask in position can cause irritation or pain or they can leave marks on people’s faces.

5. The hose or tube that connects the mask to the ventilator in many cases restricts people’s ability to sleep in their favourite position (on their side or on their stomachs.)

6. The hose can also restrict people’s ability to move in the night.

7. The ventilator, no matter how quiet, will make some sort of noise, which disturbs lots of users.

8. Some people are embarrassed about their need to use the equipment.

9. A user’s “bed partner” might be disturbed by the equipment or just not want their loved one wearing it.

10. CPAP equipment interferes massively with “intimacy”- touching, kissing, cuddling and sex.

There we go, 10 huge obstacles to using CPAP!

All of the different reasons described above mean that successfully using CPAP equipment takes a lot of hard work and dedication.

Trying to change a habit or behaviour is hard for anyone because it takes dedication and consistency and the ability to overcome challenges.

I think that trying to do this with a behaviour when you are in bed at night, is far more difficult because we have less dedication and resolve when we are in bed.

All we want to do is sleep!

I have looked at the reviews that people who have bought a wide range of CPAP masks have written and the biggest criticisms of these masks are; that people find them uncomfortable, that they leak air, they cause irritation and/ or pain or that the masks do not stay in place overnight.

Benefits of CPAP

The benefits of using CPAP can be found in reducing or eradicating the many complications and symptoms of having sleep apnea.

There are 7 main complications/ risks and they are;

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Having a heart attack or a stroke
  3. An irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
  4. Type 2 diabetes
  5. Liver problems
  6. Car accidents
  7. Sleep deprived bed partner
  8. Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  9. Inability to concentrate
  10. Irritability or short- temperedness

You can find out more about these complications by clicking here (link to Sleep Apnea article, complications section.)

Side Effects of CPAP

There is a huge list of side effects to using CPAP, which should not come as a huge surprise given that some of the side effects are included in my “10 reasons that CPAP is so unpopular” which can be found earlier in the article.

However, there are lots more. I am going to split these into three groups;

  1. General Side Effects
  2. Mask Side Effects
  3. Nasal Side Effects
  4. Pressure or airflow side effects.

General Side Effects

  1. People are embarrassed to wear the equipment
  2. Interferes with intimacy
  3. Restriction of sleep position
  4. Restriction of field of vision- watching TV, reading books, wearing glasses.
  5. Difficult to travel with
  6. Delayed sleep onset

  1. Irritation or marks left on skin.
  2. Jaw pain relating to wearing a chin strap
  3. noise
  4. hose entanglement
  5. Bruxism

  2. Runny nose
  3. nose bleeds
  4. Dry nostrils

Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD)- An Introduction

Definition

A Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) is a dental appliance, similar to a gumshield which are used to cure mild to moderate sleep apnea and snoring.

I think that it is fair to say that most MADs are bought as an anti snoring device.

There is credible evidence to suggest that they can successfully treat mild forms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Snoring has a variety of causes and MADs tend to only work for people whose snoring is caused by a “vibrating tongue”.

No Snore Comfortable Chin Strap

Introduction

Hello and welcome to this video. My name is James and I own the website Beauty of Sleep.com

In this video, I am going to review an anti snoring device called the No Snore Comfortable Chin Strap.

Contents

In this review I want to give you as much useful information as I can so that you can decide if the My Snoring Solution chin strap is the right choice for you.

Not wasting timeSo that I don’t waste your time, let me quickly tell you what is in this video review.

  • A photo and a quick description of My Snoring Solution chin strap including the price.
  • Why you snore and how MSS stops you from snoring.
  • What features the chin strap has.
  • Does the strap really work? Using feedback, ratings & questions.

If it doesn’t answer your questions, then stop watching the video now!

But, I also understand that some people hate video and so for them, there is a written review below. It is exactly the same as the video.

 

Description and Photo

No Snore Comfortable Chin Strap is one of many anti snoring chin straps in a busy market place.

Like all other anti snoring chin straps, No Snore Comfortable Chin Strap works by supporting your jaw and keeping your mouth closed.

It works by moving your lower jaw forward in order increase the airway at the back of your throat.

Price

One device will cost $10.99 (+ shipping and handling)

How Anti Snoring Chin Straps Work (Part 1)

All chin straps work in essentially the same way and so these graphics will appear in all of my chin strap reviews.

The first graphic illustrates why some people snore.

This is because whilst sleeping they breathe through their mouths. The  tongue fall backwards.

As a result, their airway becomes partially blocked and as they breathe the air vibrates as it passes through a restricted space causing snoring.

How Anti Snoring Chin Straps Work (Part 2)

And the second graphic demonstrates how the use of a chin strap stops snoring.

The strap holds the mouth closed. The tongue stays in place and the airway remains clear. The person breathes much more quietly.

The Device Features

Now, let’s have a look at some of the features and benefits of this chin strap, which are as described by the company that makes it.

Assists with snoring issues by providing jaw and throat support during sleep

Increases energy: a full night’s rest is key to having more energy during the day – no snoring means better recovery during rest!

Easy to use: takes just seconds to slip on – 27″ strap with 4″ velcro strips.

Comfortable, high-quality, and light weight neoprene fabric.

Special bonus! Get a free ebook with your purchase.

Proof and Evidence

In this section I will look at the proof or evidence that a buyer has that this chin strap actually works.

Clinical Trials

Many health products claim to have clinical trials to demonstrate how great their product is.

This chin strap like most other straps hasn’t had any clinical trials.

Medical Professionals

Many health products are also recommended by medical professionals but this strap, like most others has no recommendations.

Product Website

Neither does this chin strap have its own website but that is no bad thing because reviews on a product website tend to be overwhelmingly positive and therefore not very helpful.

Facebook Page

This chin strap does not have it’s own page on Facebook.

This is a shame because it means we have got less “independent/ unbiased” reviews to look at.

Ratings on Amazon

But this chin strap is for sale on Amazon.

It has been reviewed twenty nine times (this review was created in October 2016.)

It has an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars.

Six reviewers gave it 5 stars.  Nobody has rated it one or two stars which is very positive.

Two people rated it three stars.

Most Positive Feedback

I have seen some products for anti snore that are nasal devices but they tend to fall off pretty quick. This anti snoring jaw strap seems to work a much better! This product, in particular, seems to work pretty well and it fits me perfect.

Submitted by Lilly

Most Helpful Feedback

The strap itself is made of neoprene and is very comfortable. There are holes for your ears. I had a hard time getting the strap to fit my head properly at first but eventually I worked it out. I am happy to report.my husband slept without earplugs for the first time in quite some time.

Submitted by Michelle Stutzer.

Most Negative Feedback

It is uncomfortable, you put the strap on and it wants to go one way or the other. You end up taking it off at night without even thinking. I still don’t know if it even stops the snoring because you take it off. I am an avid snore and an adult male and it barely fits my head.”

Submitted by Amazon Customer

Pros & Cons From Feedback

This is the point where I normally like to look at the comments that people have made and the reviews that people have been written and create a list of real life pros and cons about the product.

Pros

It is comfortable.

Brings snoring down to a comfortable level.

Its chin support fits better than most other bands.

Cons

One buyer could not get it to stay on as it would slip forwards or backwards.

Would I Buy One?

Clinical Trials

There has not been any clinical trials involving this chin strap.

Medical Professionals

No medical professionals recommend this product.

Ratings on NonPareil Snore Relief.com

This product doesn’t have its own website which normal for anti snoring chin straps.

User reviews can be a very helpful guide to a potential buyer as long as they are balanced – and by that I mean that there is evidence of good reviews and bad reviews because nothing in this life is perfect.

But reviews on a product’s website are hardly ever balanced and so the lack of a website is no bad thing.

SlRatings on Facebook

NonPareil Snore Relief chin strap does not have a Facebook page.

Ratings on Amazon

This device is for sale on Amazon.

Three hundred and sixty three people have left feedback and the strap has a rating of 2.3 stars of out 5.

One hundred and sixty one people have rated the product 5 out of 5 stars (44%) and thirty five people rated it 1 out of 5 (10%.)

Most Positive Feedback

I really wish I had found this product years ago. And so does my wife and everyone else in my house! It is truly amazing.

I have been using it for a few nights now and my wife says I didn’t wake her up with my snoring at all. She said she hasn’t been able to sleep that good in years. And I slept better as well.

It fits really nice on your head and feels really good. I was worried it would keep me awake at night but it didn’t.

“This support can easily support several sizes and does a good job for its intended purpose. The product is made of pretty thin and soft fabric or neoprene material.

This product met my expectations for functionality and quality and I would definitely recommend that you consider this product as it does make a positive change in my case.”

Lance James Systems North America (October 2016)

This comment tells us that the strap can fit several sizes of head and that it is comfortable to wear.

Most Negative Feedback

“It was very uncomfortable – stiff and scratchy, very tight and restrictive.

I almost felt claustrophobic and could hardly wait to get it off.

I returned it immediately to Amazon and received a very quick refund. Thanks!”

Submitted by Myk (October 2016)

This comment makes it clear that for some users, the strap will be uncomfortable and wearing a strap could be a very unpleasant experience.

There is always the 30 day money back guarantee to fall back on.

Pros & Cons

This is the point where I normally like to look at the comments that people have made and the reviews that people have been written and create a list of real life pros and cons about the product.

Pros

Some customers find that is comfortable to wear and stays on even if they move around a lot in their sleep.

Easy to adjust

A customer with a large head found it comfortable.

Cons

Mesh lining is very uncomfortable.

It is made of neoprene (the same as a wet suit) and the material does have a definite smell.

Did not stop the snoring, it did not stay on at night.

Would I Buy It?

Description & Photo

An image of My Snoring Solution Chin Strap

I don’t think that I am surprising or offending anyone by saying that most anti- snoring chin straps look very similar and work in almost exactly the same way to each other.

MSS  is one of many anti snoring chin straps in a busy market place.

Like all other anti snoring chin straps, MSS works by supporting your jaw and keeping your mouth closed.

It works by moving your lower jaw forward in order increase the airway at the back of your throat.

Price

How much will your anti snoring device cost?

You cannot just buy one MSS, you get two for $119.97 (+ shipping and handling.)

 

How MSS Stops You Snoring (Part 1)

Graphic of Someone Snoring

The first graphic shows what happens when you don’t wear a chin strap.

While sleeping the soft tissue at the back of your throat collapses, Partially blocking the passageway. Air passing through the restricted passageway Causes vibration (snoring.)

How MSS Stops You Snoring (Part 2)

My Snore Solution Stops SnoringThe second graphic shows that when MSS is worn during sleep the lower jaw is supported which keeps the airway open and unrestricted. Vibrations are eliminated.

The Device Features

A Brief Look at the Benefits of the device

 

Now, let’s have a look at some of the features and benefits of this chin strap, which are as described by the company that makes it.

It comes in three different sizes; small (for people up to 120 lbs), medium (for people from 120 lbs to 240 lbs) and large (for people who are over 240 lbs.)

What is your money back guarantee?MSS gives you a whooping 90 money back guarantee – that is far greater than any other anti snoring chin strap.

In the US, you must use USPS PRIORITY MAIL with DELIVERY CONFIRMATION to send your device back.

I cannot find any information regarding the exact timing of the 90 day guarantee.

I am not sure if it starts from the day that you order it or the day that you receive it.

But you can find out more information by reading this page.

Also, the company will happily exchange your chin strap for another one if you bought the wrong size.

Free Bonus DVD and Book

Free Book and DVD

You also get a free DVD called the American Medical Review and a free book “The 7 Steps To Sleep Success.” .

 

Does the chin strap really work?

In this section I will look at the proof or evidence that a buyer has that MSS works.

Clinical Trials

Have there been any clinical trials?

Many health products claim to have clinical trials to demonstrate how great their product is.

Uniquely for an anti snoring chin strap, MSS has had a clinical trial involving 10 patients.

All the people in the trial suffered from obstructive sleep apnea.

There were three main results. For some patients incidents of sleep apnea, snoring and blood pressure reduced.

Medical Professionals

Do any medical professional recommend this mouthpiece

Many health products are also recommended by medical professionals but MSS like most other anti snoring straps has no recommendations

 

 

 

Product Website

Unusually for anti snoring chin straps, MSS has its own website.

User reviews can be a very helpful guide to a potential buyer as long as they are balanced.

But unfortunately, trying to find a user review that is balanced is very, very difficult.

MSS has seven reviews on its website. Needless to say, they are all positive and therefore a little suspicious

Facebook Page

fbicon

This chin strap doesn’t have a Facebook page- which is a shame because it is a website that people can leave honest opinions about things on.

 

Amazon

What are the devices rating on Amazon?

The MSS is not for sale on Amazon.

Again, this is a shame because it means we have got less “independent/ unbiased” reviews to look at.

So let us take a look at some of the different reviews people have left about the My Snore Solution strap.

Most Positive Feedback

How is this product rated?

“We’ve been married for 21 years. Several times during the night my wife would punch me. That was the code for, “Roll over on your side so you quit snoring.” I have used your “My Snoring Solution” now for 2 nights. My wife reports an amazing difference in that I am no longer snoring, on my back or my side, but what has amazed me the most is how much better I feel after a night’s sleep! Thanks for a great night’s sleep!”

This comment shows how destructive and stressful snoring is on a relationship- particularly for two people who share a bed.

This comment shows us how powerful the use of MSS can be on someone’s life.

Most Negative Feedback

What was the most negative comment?

Unfortunately, none of the reviews had anything negative to say!

 

 

Pros & Cons

Pros and Cons

This is the point where I normally like to look at the comments that people have made and the reviews that people have been written and create a list of real life pros and cons about the product.

Unfortunately, because the only reviews for this product are on its own website and nowhere else it limits the amount of useful information that we can use.

I think the 90 day money back guarantee is an outstanding feature.

The price is the device’s most off- putting feature. It is about 5 times more expensive than most other anti snoring chin straps

Facebook Page

This chin strap doesn’t have a Facebook page.

 

 

Amazon

What are the devices rating on Amazon?

Most anti snoring chin straps seem to be sold through Amazon and so we can use the their reviews to get some really important information about the product.

A real strength of Amazon reviews is that they are written by ordinary people who have bought and used the product.

However, an increasing number of reviews on Amazon are written by people who have bought a product at a discount in return for leaving a review- this review should still be honest though.

Ratings on Amazon

What is the most positive comment?This device is for sale on Amazon. Seven people have left feedback and the strap gets a rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars. Three people gave the device a rating of 5 stars and three people gave it a rating of 1 star.

That is not much feedback if I am honest.

What was the most negative comment?“I’m not a mouth snorer so this did not work for me at all. I really wanted this to work too. Back to the nose strips.”

Submitted by Myk (October 2016)

This is an important point. Chin straps only work for mouth snorers.

So before you buy one, make sure that you are a mouth snorer!

Sometimes in order to keep it on it had to tightened so much that it gave me headaches.

The holes for the ears do not fit comfortably if the device is wrapped too tightly.

Description & Photo

Snorex Anti Snore Sleep Chin Strap is one of many anti snoring chin straps in a busy market place.

Like all other anti snoring chin straps, Snorex works by supporting your jaw and keeping your mouth closed.

It works by moving your lower jaw forward in order increase the airway at the back of your throat.

Price

One device will cost you $11.99 (+ shipping and handling)

How Anti Snoring Chin Straps Work (1)

All chin straps work in essentially the same way and so these graphic will appear in all of my chin strap reviews.

The first graphic illustrates why some people snore.

This is because whilst sleeping they breathe through their mouths. The  tongue fall backwards.

As a result, their airway becomes partially blocked and as they breathe the air vibrates as it passes through a restricted space causing snoring.

How Anti Snoring Chin Straps Work (2)

And the second graphic demonstrates how the use of a chin strap stops snoring.

The strap holds the mouth closed. The tongue stays in place and the airway remains clear. The person breathes much more quietly.

Proof & Evidence

In this section I will look at the proof or evidence that a buyer has that the the Snorex Anti Snore Sleep Chin Strap works.

Clinical Trials

Many health products claim to have clinical trials to demonstrate how great their product is.

This chin strap like most other straps hasn’t had any clinical trials.

Medical Professionals

Many health products are also recommended by medical professionals but this strap, like most others has no recommendations.

Product Website

Neither does this chin strap have its own website but that is no bad thing because reviews on a product website tend to be overwhelmingly positive and therefore not very helpful

Facebook Page

This chin strap does not have it’s own page on Facebook.

This is a shame because it means we have got less “independent/ unbiased” reviews to look at.

Ratings on Amazon

But this chin strap is for sale on Amazon.

It has been reviewed only nine times (this review was created in October 2016.)

This is a surprise as it is a top seller in the anti snoring category.

It has an average rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars.

Six reviewers gave it 5 stars.  Two people rated it one star.

Most Positive Feedback

I have tried a number of different styles of chin straps with little success. This is the only one that really worked. I feel rested again in the morning since I started using this chin strap.

This is the point where I normally like to look at the comments that people have made and the reviews that people have been written and create a list of real life pros and cons about the product.

Cons

One buyer wished that the there was more padding around the chin…
