I am delighted with the ease of use and pearmfornce of this product. First, for those of you who think you couldn't sleep with this on .. no problem. Light as a feather, you won't know it's there, and despite the pictures above, no part of it goes in your nose (more below). For $50 I have confirmation of probably severe sleep apnea. I will go for professional evaluation and if the results are different, I will post that information. My primary reason for professional evaluation other than getting the prescribed products will be to differentiate between central (rare) and obstructive (more common) sleep apnea. From my research, I seem to be at risk for both (which can occur in mixed form as well) and which are treated somewhat differently. I am one of the fortunate who have insurance; having the results from this device simply makes it easier to make the case for a full polysomnography test. For those of you who are uninsured and wondering whether a visit to the doctor and possibly expensive testing is warranted, this seems to be an excellent starting point for the money. My two cautions: (1) The pictures on Amazon of the product in use differ from the instructions. The instructions have you bend the two nasal wings forward so they are at a 90 degree angle to the rest of the device and air from the nose passes down onto them, NOT across them as they lie flat on your upper lip and into your nostrils as depicted above. (2) Reading it the next morning: I was furious at $50 ill-spent and logging on to caution others against this when I decided to look again at the product picture above that shows you get a numerical reading, then look again at my product. It turns out that you have to get the light just right to read the results. Any glare and you won't see the number. If it looks blank to you, as it did to me, take it into different light and hold it at different angles. The easiest seems to be to hold it right up to a lamp light under the shade and tilt the device until you have a good view of the number. UPDATE: After professional evaluation, YES I have sleep apnea severe enough to warrant a CPAP machine. Still recommend this device as first step in evaluation if you suspect any trouble trying to get past the medical gate-keepers to a full overnight sleep-study evaluation.

He prob has Allergies Impaired Sleep Quality And Allergic Rhinitis LinkedSept. 2006: Patients with Allergic Rhinitis, such as that caused by Hay Fever and other Allergies, have more dluifcfity sleeping and more sleep disorders than those without Allergies, according to a report in the September 18 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, a theme issue on sleep. Allergic rhinitis, which occurs when pollen or other allergens irritate and inflame the nasal passages, affects about 20 to 50 percent of the population, according to background information in the article. Allergies have been shown to affect quality of life and several studies have suggested that they may contribute to snoring and breathing problems during sleep, including sleep apnea, a temporary halt to breathing. However, few researchers have closely examined sleep disorders in patients with allergic rhinitis. Damien Leger, M.D., of Assistance Publique Hopitaux de Paris, and colleagues explored the association between allergic rhinitis and sleep in 591 patients (47 percent men, 53 percent women, average age 34) who had the condition for at least one year and who were being treated by an allergist or by an ear, nose and throat specialist. A control group of 502 individuals who were the same age and sex and lived in the same area, but did not have allergic rhinitis, was also assessed. In 2002, all participants reported sleep disorders and rated their sleepiness; they also provided details regarding demographics, socioeconomic status and smoking habits. For patients with allergic rhinitis, researchers recorded the type of allergies, the duration of the condition, symptoms experienced and treatments used, as well as the presence and treatment of any additional allergic disorders. All sleep disorders and complaints including insomnia, waking up during the night, snoring and feeling fatigued when awakening were more common in those with allergic rhinitis, who also slept fewer hours, took longer to fall asleep and more often felt sleepy during the day. Among the 591 patients with allergic rhinitis, 41.6 percent (vs. 18.3 percent of those without allergic rhinitis) reported dluifcfity falling asleep, 63.2 percent said they felt they lacked adequate sleep (compared with 25.4 percent of controls) and 35.8 percent (vs. 16 percent of controls) reported insomnia. The results show a significant impact of allergic rhinitis on all dimensions of sleep quality and, consequently, a lower quality of life as reflected by more somnolence [sleepiness]; daytime fatigue and sleepiness; and impaired memory, mood and sexuality, with a significantly increased consumption of alcohol and sedatives in cases compared with the control group, the authors write. The effects of allergic rhinitis on sleep became more pronounced when the condition was moderate to severe. As allergies worsened, individuals slept fewer hours at night, felt sleepy more often during the day, took longer to fall asleep and found it more necessary to take sedative drugs. All types of physicians, including primary care physicians, pulmonologists and ear, nose and throat specialists, should question patients with allergic rhinitis about their sleep habits and difficulties, the authors conclude. This could lead to early detection and treatment of sleep disorders in these patients, they write. Treating allergic rhinitis or other nasal symptoms may improve dramatically the quality of sleep. In the long term, such a strategy would have positive repercussions on a societal level; for example, the numbers of road and work accidents would be reduced. Considering the high incidence of allergic rhinitis and the high rate of associated sleep disorders, the issue is one of public health. (Arch Intern Med. 2006;166:1744-1748.)In the study, French researchers compared the prevalence of sleep disorders and other troubles sleeping in a group of 591 people who were being treated for allergic rhinitis with a similar group of 502 adults without allergic rhinitis.The results showed that all sleep disorders and sleep-related complaints were much more common in people with allergies than those without.For example:b736% of people with allergic rhinitis reported insomnia compared with 16% of those without.b742% of those with allergic rhinitis vs. 18% of those without said they had dluifcfity falling asleep.b763% of allergic rhinitis sufferers said they felt like they weren't getting enough sleep compared with 25% of the controls.Researcher Damien Le9ger, MD, of Assistance Publique Hf4pitaux de Paris, and colleagues also found that the severity of sleep disorders and troubles sleeping increased as the severity of symptoms increased. With worsening symptoms, people slept fewer hours, took longer to fall asleep, felt sleepy more often during the day, and found it more necessary to take sedatives.
