Frequently Asked Questions

Nose vents

How do the nose vents work?

In the majority of cases, snoring is caused by the entrance to the nose being too narrow or being blocked (weak nostrils). This means you get insufficient air while asleep. If for any reason nasal breathing is not possible, our body’s self-preservation mechanism forces us to breathe through the mouth. This causes our tongue and lower jaw to fall back in your throat blocking the airway which results in localized tissue vibration and produces the snoring sound. The nose vents improve the flow of air through the nose, improves your nose breathing, and eliminates snoring.

Are the nose vents comfortable? 

For first time users, you might want to try wearing the nose vents for a few hours during the day for an easier adjustment. Also, try on a different size and see which one fits you best. If the tubes are too long, cut from the end with a Scissors, until the correct length is found. We encourage users to use them consistently for two weeks to get accustomed to the fit.

Do the nose vents fall out while asleep?

It is unlikely that the nose vents fall out on their own. During the initial adjustment period, some users will unknowingly remove the nose vents while sleeping. It may take some time to get used to using the vents, but usually no more than two weeks.
