How AIRMAX can help relieve snoring and sleep apnea
AIRMAX can help snorers (and their partners) to sleep more easily. Twenty percent of us are chronic snorers, and nearly half of all adults snore occasionally. As we get older, we become more likely to start snoring.
Snoring is caused by a restriction in the airway which results in not getting enough oxygen. To compensate for the lack of oxygen we start breathing through our mouths, causing vibrations of the soft palate and other tissue in the mouth, nose and throat. AIRMAX works by widening the narrowest part of the nasal entrance to allow greater airflow. This enables the air to go deeper into the lungs and provide more oxygen.
Using AIRMAX will help you switch from mouth breathing to nasal breathing which consequently helps to reduce snoring.
AIRMAX is a simple, non-invasive treatment that is clinically proven to work.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition that causes interrupted breathing during sleep. The muscles and soft tissues in the throat relax and collapse sufficiently to cause a total blockage of the airway; it is called an apnea when the airflow is blocked for 10 seconds or more. Most people with OSA snore loudly. Their breathing may be noisy and labored and is often interrupted by gasping and snorting with each episode of apnea.
During an episode, lack of oxygen causes the person to come out of deep sleep and into a lighter state of sleep, or a brief period of wakefulness, in order to restore normal breathing. However, after falling back into deep sleep, further episodes of apnea can occur.
These repeated interruptions to sleep caused by OSA can make the person feel very tired during the day. A person with OSA will usually have no memory of breathlessness, so they are often unaware that they are not getting a proper night's sleep.
AIRMAX can help by widening the narrowest part of the nasal entrance to allow greater airflow. This enables the air to go deeper into the lungs and provide more oxygen. AIRMAX can be used in combination with an oxygen mask (e.g. CPAP) and has been proven to increase compliance for CPAP users.

How to use
Clean the device with water before and after use. When using AIRMAX for the first time, we recommend the use of a mirror to help you position the device. The AIRMAX device is properly positioned when the 'legs' widen the nasal entrance and when the 'connecting bridge' is touching your nasal septum. Refer to illustration below.
You should use the AIRMAX device each night for at least 2 consecutive weeks, as it may take time for your nose to become accustomed to the shape of the AIRMAX device.
The AIRMAX device can be cleaned with water and mild soap. Each AIRMAX device should only be used by one person to prevent transfer of diseases like the common cold.
If you have trouble placing the AIRMAX device in your nose because your nose is not symmetrical, you should not use it. If, after placement of device, you do not notice improvement in breathing, we advise you seek the advice of an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor.
If, after regular use of the AIRMAX device, your nasal passages become irritated, this could be an allergic reaction to the medical grade plastic. Discontinue use and see a physician if condition persists. To date, no allergic reactions have been reported.
AIRMAX is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Keep out of reach of younger children to prevent choking.
How does the AIRMAX Nasal Device work?
The unique AIRMAX 'wings' expand the narrowest parts of the nasal passage to allow increased airflow.
How is the AIRMAX Nasal Device different from other available consumer products?
The AIRMAX Nasal Device is remarkably different when compared to nasal strips. It is placed inside the nasal canal, it does not have adhesives on it, and it pushes the nasal canal open as opposed to pulling on the outside of the nose. Research has shown that the AIRMAX device provides a 3 times better average aerodynamic performance than nasal strips. Also it is reusable — coming with a handy storage case.
When compared to other devices that are designed to be placed inside the nasal passages, the AIRMAX Nasal Device is noteworthy because it reaches into the narrowest part of the nasal passages – helping to push the nasal canal open for improved airflow. Most other devices of this type are typically placed only in the lowest part of the nasal passage.
Does the AIRMAX Nasal Device contain latex?
No. The AIRMAX Nasal Device is made of medical grade plastic (S.E.B.S.), which is not associated with latex sensitivity.
What is S.E.B.S and is it safe?
S.E.B.S. is the abbreviation for: Styrene Ethylene Butylene Styrene. According to Greenpeace this is an acceptable alternative to PVC. S.E.B.S. is used for example in toothbrushes, in medical devices or in products used by dentists. S.E.B.S. has an excellent resistance to water, acids and bases. S.E.B.S. is safer than PVC.
Is there any known allergic reaction caused by the use of AIRMAX?
No known allergic reaction has been reported so far.
What is the difference between the AIRMAX for Better Breathing and the AIRMAX for Better Sleep?
They are the same great product, marketed to two different markets/users. The packaging and marketing are the only difference.
I see that the AIRMAX Nasal Device is available in small and medium sizes. What size is right for me?
While everyone has different sized nasal passages, the medium size fits most. If you have noticeably small nasal passages, the small size is likely the better choice.
Is the AIRMAX visible during usage?
AIRMAX is visible under the nasal septum. This is a good indication that the AIRMAX has been properly placed inside the nose.
Will the AIRMAX change the shape of my nose?
When wearing the AIRMAX, the narrowest part of the nasal entrance is slightly widened. However, this mechanical widening disappears when removing the AIRMAX. The AIRMAX will not affect the shape of your nose after you have used it.
Will the AIRMAX Nasal Device help prevent snoring?
Yes. For many people the AIRMAX Nasal Device has been clinically proven to help reduce snoring. In clinical tests with patients experiencing various stages of socially disruptive snoring, 75% of patients experienced significant reduction of snoring (loudness and duration).
If my snoring is due to mouth breathing, will I still benefit from the AIRMAX?
Yes. Using the AIRMAX will facilitate nasal breathing and will therefore help you switch from mouth breathing to nasal breathing which consequently helps you reduce snoring.
Can the AIRMAX Nasal Device help with sleep apnea symptoms?
Since the AIRMAX Nasal Device improves nasal breathing it can assist some patients with sleep apnea or OSAS (obstructive sleep apnea syndrome). In clinical testing a portion of patients with OSAS actually experienced a reduction in snoring (loudness and duration) with the use of the AIRMAX device. As with all specific serious medical conditions, we recommend you consult your physician for treatment.
Can I use the AIRMAX Nasal Device with a CPAP machine?
Yes. There should be no issues with using the AIRMAX Nasal Device and your CPAP machine. If you have any questions about this, we encourage you to speak with your ENT doctor.
How long will the AIRMAX Nasal Device last?
Due to the design and manufacture of the AIRMAX Nasal Device, it should last a substantial period of time if cleaned regularly and stored in a cool, dry place. For hygienic reasons, we recommend you replace your device every 60–90 days.
Can my child use the AIRMAX Nasal Device?
The AIRMAX Nasal Device is not recommended for children ages 12 and under.
How do I use the AIRMAX Nasal Device?
For details on how to insert and fit the device please see our AIRMAX Nasal Device Instructions section on the website.
I just started using this nasal device and I’m experiencing some sensitivity in my nasal passages. Is this normal and do you have any suggestions?
Some users experience modest sensitivity to the device when first used. We encourage users to use it consistently for two weeks to get accustomed to the fit.
Is it normal to remove the AIRMAX while sleeping? Did it fall out?
It is highly unlikely that the device fell out on its own. During the 'break-in' period, some users will unknowingly remove the device while sleeping. It may take some time to get used to using the AIRMAX, but usually no more than two weeks.
I have been using the AIRMAX for a few weeks now and my nose is a bit irritated. Is that normal?
Some users with a dry nose or a deviated septum may experience irritation in their nose after a few weeks of use. This irritation can be avoided or minimized by moistening the AIRMAX Nasal Device with water before use.
How do I clean the the AIRMAX Nasal Device?
The AIRMAX Nasal Device can be cleaned with water and mild soap. Each AIRMAX device should only be used by one person to prevent transfer of diseases like the common cold.
