Snoring and airway obstruction are often associated and can have a
significant impact on the 'sufferers' ability to function when awake.
There are many aids which are meant to assist in this area. Here's one
of them.

While this anti-snoring aid looks very amusing it MAY be of great use
to some.
Making something similar for yourself may save you about $US60. (Or
$40 (or $120) if you don't buy 2 and get 1 free).

There are always positive testimonials, but these do sound generally
encouraging

Apparently if one is getting restful sleep, men's love handles will
disappear.  Front page - conclusive clinical research.  So despite 8
hours of sleep per night, I'm not getting restful sleep?  Alternately,
I can simply look at people and tell whether they are getting restful
sleep or not?  Hmmm!

May work fine for snoring and airway obstruction, but seems to be
grasping at straws at some points.  Of course, I will likely care more
about this the older I get:

For the love handles, I recomend the Hacker's Diet, subtitled "How to
lose weight and hair through stress and poor nutrition."

Sort of a systems engineering perspective on weight control.

With the amount of errors that can be expected from systems engineering
done without the proper experimenting :)

Seriously, from a systems engineering standpoint that approach fails quite
a bit.

Let us know how it works out for you Russell! <VBG> Or ask Val to let us
know.

On a more serious note, my wife has this problem (apnea) and it has been a
real issue for her. She has this terrible machine that is supposed to help
her breath, but she typically doesn't use it due to how uncomfortable and
restrictive it is.... Also, waking up next to her when she has it on is good
for a few seconds of "oh crap, I'm in a sci-fi horror show."

Part of the machine is a head strap that has, I believe, the same effect as
this fine product. I don't think it has made a significant difference for
her even when she does use it, but I'm not 100% sure.

I actually have to use a CPAP machine. I tend to think of that myself.

If your wife has problems, I suggest that she try both new headgear (they
make them more comfortable now) and a different pillow. I use a pillow
from LL Bean that allows me to sleep fairly normally with my mask on.

And yes, the machine makes a *huge* difference in how my wife sleeps (I'm
allowed to sleep in the same room again) and how I sleep.

My wife will probably get to feel how I feel when she gets fitted with
her own machine (a BiPAP -- for Central Sleep Apnea).
