Nasal respiratory airflow resistances of awake snorers averaged 0.188 +/- 0.165 Pa/cm3/s (N = 306) and were not elevated beyond the normal range (less than 0.25 Pa/cm3/s). Resistances were decreased substantially from a mean of 0.164 +/- 0.128 to 0.065 +/- 0.037 Pa/cm3/s (N = 72) by a nasal vestibular dilator (Nozovent). Effects of the dilator on breathing disorders in sleep were determined by polysomnographic recordings that included frequency, duration and intensity of snoring, apneas… CONTINUE READING
