CPAP chin strap reviews

CPAP chin straps are meant to be used with CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines. The function of the strap is to hold the user’s mouth closed while they are being administered air from the machine. The reason for this is that, if you sleep with your mouth open, your CPAP machine could be drying out your mouth. Waking up with dry mouth is not enjoyable, and it could have some negative effects on your day.

These are relatively inexpensive and absolutely worth your money, especially when you consider how expensive CPAP machines are. Here are some of the pros and cons of CPAP chin straps.

Pros of CPAP chin straps

The straps are made out of a material that stretches easily and does not irritate the skin. There are several varieties of straps out there that come in different sizes. As long as you choose carefully, your chin strap may be hardly noticeable.

These chin straps are ridiculously cheap. Think about how expensive your CPAP machine was, it only makes sense to pay around ten dollars for a product that will allow you to get the most out of it. Otherwise it’s as if you paid hundreds of dollars to wake up with dry mouth every morning. No matter how you look at it, CPAP chin straps are a smart purchase if you suffer from dry mouth.

Cons of CPAP chin straps

Yes, the chin straps help you with dry mouth, but if you’re not prone to sleeping with your mouth open, there’s really no reason for you to buy the product. This isn’t necessarily a drawback or a flaw, just the simple fact that these straps only apply to those who have dry mouth. If you sleep with your mouth closed and own a CPAP machine, there’s very little that the strap could do to improve your situation.

How Does it work? Will it Help You?

Dry mouth can be a very serious condition. If you suffer from prolonged dry mouth, it can have some very nasty side effects. You tongue may start to burn, and then you could experience pain while swallowing food or water. Eventually, if you experience prolonged dry mouth, you could develop a mouth infection. So not only will these devices help you get the most out of your machine, but they can actually prevent an infection from spreading in your body.

Again, it just seems like common sense to buy one of these products if you already have a CPAP machine. They’re cheap and they could save you a lot of hassle in the long run.

CPAP chin strap review

CPAP-chin-strapThose of us affected with Sleep Apnea are well aware of how serious the condition can be. For those who are unfamiliar, Sleep Apnea is a condition you could think of as a form of extreme snoring. It is characterized by a momentary block in the sufferer’s airways while they sleep, while snoring is when the airway is partially blocked. Sleep Apnea can become extremely severe when nasal pathways are blocked for longer than 30 seconds, and while this is rare, it’s certainly better to be safe than sorry if you have this condition.
