Abstract:The Nozovent nostril dilator improves nasal breathing to the same degree as topical decongestants and reduces mouth dryness at night in 51% of nocturnal mouth breathers. It does not help every snorer but reduces the snoring heard by the sleeping partner in about 50%, improves the respiratory disturbance index significantly in 19% and gives less morning and daytime tiredness in 40% of snorers. The medium CPAP pressure can be significantly reduced with the dilator.
