NoseTubes are designed to improve nasal breathing during the night to ensure better sleep, and they are particularly suitable when an operation to widen the nose is not desirable or not possible.
The main complaints of poor nasal breathing at night are:
a dry mouth because of sleeping with an open mouth and snoring.
The result is frequent waking during the night, which produces a bad night's sleep. A poor night's sleep and snoring may also have a negative effect on your functioning during the day.
An additional benefit of the NoseTubes is that improved nasal breathing reduces snoring.
This can be tested easily by trying out the NoseTubes for a month.
The NoseTubes are also an ideal solution for sports. By widening the nasal passage, nasal breathing is easier whilst playing sports. This enables a higher oxygen intake which improves performance.
Research amongst a small group of people has demonstrated that after wearing NoseTubes at night, the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist did not observe irritation or damage to the mucous or skin.
There are no reports of problems with existing products in scientific literature.
The FDA, the American Food and Drug Administration, also indicates that this type of product does not produce any danger to your health.
European regulations (CE) classify NoseTubes as a medical device class I, which means that the product was registered with the Health Inspectorate (IGZ).
According to these regulations, the product may be used for a maximum of 28 days.
After 28 days, the used NoseTubes must be thrown away and you must use new NoseTubes. There are three types of packaging available for the NoseTubes - monthly, quarterly and six-monthly packaging. They can be ordered quickly and easily from our webshop.
Using a NoseTube set for more than 28 days is fully at the user's own risk.
We recommend you do not leave the NoseTubes in your nose for more than 12 hours a day. We also recommend strongly that you do NOT use lubricants to insert NoseTubes, such as coconut oil, olive oil, vaseline, cream or gel. These products may have an adverse effect on the material of the NoseTubes. There is also a chance that the NoseTubes will slip quicker from the nasal passage.
If you smoke the NoseTubes may become affected by nicotine and tar deposits.
We recommend using NoseTubes from the age of 16.
The NoseTubes are designed for people who no longer grow.
The Nose Tubes are delivered non sterile.
