#6200 Urocare® Anti-Snoring Strap

What is Snoring?
Snoring is a harsh or some times rattling noise that is usually produced during deep sleep. The sound is produced when air inhaled through the mouth vibrates the tissue in the roof of the mouth near the throat. As the soft tissue vibrates, the lips, cheeks, and nostrils can also vibrate, making the sound even louder. Almost everyone snores occasionally, but men usually snore more often than women and children. Everyone knows this problem, as snorers themselves or as involuntarily listeners. In either case, the results are undesirable.

Is Snoring is Unhealthy?
#6200 Application Diagram An estimated one in every 30 to 50 adults has sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep. In one form of sleep apnea, called obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles that hold open the airway relax, causing the breathing passage to collapse. When oxygen levels in the blood become too low, the person wakes briefly to take a gasping breath, which sounds like a loud snort. People with this condition don't remember these short awakenings and often assume that they have slept through the night. As a result they may not understand why they develop excessive daytime sleepiness.

Snoring is Bad for the Heart
Due to a lowered oxygen supply, the heart must work harder. For persons with heart disease, snoring can be dangerous. An increased demand on an unhealthy heart causes the heart to beat quickly so that it wakens the person sleeping. The person often finds themselves drenched in sweat with a heart beating rapidly. Excessive palpitation is often attributed to dreaming, but that is not usually the case. The actual cause is snoring.

Healthy Sleep
Healthy, quiet and restful sleep is possible with the Urocare® Anti-Snoring Strap. It helps snorers and saves others from torment. It is made from soft, synthetic rubber and padded with a fine cotton and foam laminate. Through gentle training, the lower jaw remains closed during sleep. Every snorer should in their own interest, but also with regard for his fellow man use the Urocare® Anti-Snoring Strap.
