What Do Nasal Strips Do For Breathing?

Nasal strips are one of the most economical, comfortable and affordable ways of getting a better night's sleep. You’ve probably heard it all, or maybe you haven’t because your snore has become THAT loud. Let us give you the low down, when most people get to the stage of acceptance in the snoring journey, then they start to research proper solutions for their snoring issue. They will come across nasal strips and because they aren’t industrious, invasive, expensive or let’s be honest, much to look at, they are often thrown to the wayside because the belief that they work is close to impossible.

Say Goodnight To The Elephant In The Room

Are we desensitised to the issue of snoring? Is it actually a topic that we recognise as a constant issue? Obesity rates skyrocketing, consistent back issues and even asthma trump the topic of snoring any day when it comes to distinguishing health problems in Australia. How can we really blame them? We’ve been sucked into watching Disney characters like Pluto, Humphrey the Bear and Donald Duck snore for days. The comical element brushes the serious out of the issue. If it's not deemed serious by society what is the urgency about getting the help the snorer needs. Why is it important to admit there is an issue?

EXTERNAL NASAL STRIPS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN (JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, 2016)

Abstract Importance  The internal nasal valve is the narrowest part of the nasal airway and a common site of inspiratory collapse and obstruction of nasal airflow. Over-the-counter mechanical nasal dilators are an alternative to surgical intervention that attempts to improve airflow through the internal nasal valve. Objective  To determine the efficacy of over-the-counter mechanical nasal dilators and classify these products by mechanism.
