Our Sleep Apnea Solution

The Wedge & Oxygen Pillow 

Why this combination could work for you:

 

 

Sleep Apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain, and the rest of the body, may not get enough oxygen.

 The types of Apnea:

  • Central sleep apnea: Unlike OSA, the airway is not blocked, but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe, due to instability in the respiratory control center.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA): The more common of the two forms of apnea, it is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep.

People at Risk:

  • Being overweight
  • Being over age 40
  • Having a large neck size (17 inches or greater in men and 16 inches or greater in women)
  • Having large tonsils, a large tongue, or a small jaw bone
  • Having a family history of sleep apnea
  • Gastroesophageal reflux, or GERD
  • Nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum, allergies, or sinus problems

If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a growing number of health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Heart failure, irregular heart beats, and heart attacks
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Worsening of ADHD
  • Headaches

 Our Products

The Oxygen Pillow takes into account the anatomy of the neck and head. The hollow core design provides comfortable support from the top of the head through the chin providing side sleepers with the appropriate support. The design of contour pillows caters to back sleepers while often leaving the neck inadequately supported during side sleeping. 

To achieve proper alignment, you need the appropriate thickness and firmness from your pillow. And everyone is different. That’s why the Oxygen Pillow comes in a broad range of height and firmness options—you can find the “fit” that is right for you. 

Our Adjustable Oxygen Wedge is made from eco-certified stretch-knit cotton and durable eco-certified latex. The Oxygen Wedge is designed to gently elevate the head and torso while supporting comfortable back and side sleeping. Elevated sleeping and side sleeping have been shown to improve breathing and alleviate symptoms of nighttime disorders.
