Snoring Mask

Can a Snoring mask save your marriage?

Excessive snoring at night is one of the grounds your partner may use against you in filing a divorce. So if you do not want to lose your beloved just because of this distracting sleep condition, it is best that you purchase a mask that helps to cure snoring. If you think that citing snoring as grounds for divorce is something extremely overboard, then you have not yet realized how torture some it can be to sleep beside a snorer or live with the annoying snoring sound that a snorer creates.

Extremely loud snoring at night is not only annoying but is also unhealthy. Fortunately, these masks were developed to aid snorers to deal with their snoring problems and here is basic information which you should know about it.

What is a Snoring mask?

It is a mask designed to correct a person’s breathing and consequently provides a better night’s sleep. There are different types of masks for snoring that are available in the market, which you can choose from. Just make sure that when you do purchase one, it fits you properly and will not distract or disturb you while you are sleeping. Choose a mask that is effective in correcting your breathing pattern without compromising the comfort and does not ask you to spend a lot of money on it.

CPAP or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Appliances

This is a special kind of mask which is commonly used in hospitals. It is connected to a pump which serves as the source of pressure for the air flow. This flow of air by using force or pressure prevents the patient’s throat from collapsing completely. Due to the free flow of air, there is no creation of loud snoring sounds.

It is one of the most effective treatment tool recommended by physicians for patients who are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea but is criticized because it is very uncomfortable and inconvenient to use. Some people who are extremely claustrophobic may resent the idea of having a mask over their nose.

At present there are three basic models of CPAP snoring or nasal masks namely CPAP Nasal Pillow Masks, CPAP Nasal Masks, and CPAP Full-Face Masks. CPAP Full-Face Masks is probably the most expensive and largest type of nasal mask. Although the name implies that it should cover the entire face of the patient, CPAP Full-Face masks only cover the mouth and nose area of the patient. This area is sealed using a gel-like substance that can be replace over a period of time if observed to be wearing out and stiffening. This is best recommended for patients who use their mouth while breathing.

CPAP nasal masks are the types of masks that are designed to cover the nose area of the patient alone. The seals of this mask are secured with the use of soft pads also composed of gel-like substances and are believed to be a more comfortable alternative to full-face masks and even pillow masks.

Lastly, CPAP Nasal Pillow Masks are the smallest and lightest of all the types of CPAP masks. It is designed to fit only the nostrils of the patient’s face and acts as a soft cushion like pillow with flexible ends that act as its seal. The word pillow in its name does not imply in anyway that pillows are used to cover the breathing area of a person, instead this is the term used to represent the cushion seals found on its ends.

Snoring mask requires a doctor’s prescription to be purchased, and usually fall between the range of $100- $ 600
