Pros and cons of VitalSleep


How It Works

How does VitalSleep work?

Most snoring is caused by a partial obstruction in the upper airway behind the tongue. When your airway is partially obstructed, this causes tissues in your nose and throat to vibrate and leads to snoring.

VitalSleep is intended to be used to reduce or stop your snoring. The mouthpiece pulls your lower jaw forward and creates an opening between the upper and lower jaw. This improves the airflow into your lungs while you sleep.

Smooth airflow into your lungs stops snoring. By using VitalSleep's adjustment tools, you can open your airway incrementally by advancing the lower jaw slightly more each night until snoring stops.

How does VitalSleep compare with other snoring mouthpieces?

VitalSleep is different because it has a large airway opening, male and female sizes and uses adjustment tools. The large airway opening and adjustable lower-half of the mouthpiece allow for increased airflow. This can result in better sleep and less snoring.

VitalSleep's fitting process is also a bit different because it does not create as deep of an impression as some other mouthpieces.

VitalSleep vs. Zyppah

VitalSleep differs from Zyppah in the following ways:

  • VitalSleep uses adjustment tools to advance the lower jaw incrementally while Zyppah has a one-size-fits-all advancement
  • VitalSleep's impression of your teeth is not as secure as that of Zyppah
  • VitalSleep doesn't have an elastic band to keep your tongue in place like Zyppah
  • VitalSleep is made of softer material than Zyppah
  • VitalSleep can overheat more easily than Zyppah

VitalSleep vs. SnoreRx

VitalSleep differs from SnoreRx in the following ways:

  • VitalSleep uses adjustment tools to advance the lower jaw incrementally by rotating a screw while SnoreRx uses fixed 1mm increments to make jaw adjustments
  • VitalSleep does not leave impressions of your teeth which are as secure or deep as SnoreRx
  • VitalSleep's materials are softer and less durable than SnoreRx

Patient Results

Actual patient tesults from wearing VitalSleep

A patient who snored wore VitalSleep for two consecutive nights. Before wearing VitalSleep, the patient recorded snoring. While wearing VitalSleep, the patient snored less.

The results, captured using a snoring app, show that the snoring was reduced in both duration and intensity each night. The patient kept the mouthpiece close to its default adjustment setting while wearing the mouthpiece. Therefore, it's possible their snoring could have been further reduced over time with incremental adjustments. These results indicate that VitalSleep can show an improve in snoring immediately.

During the nights the patient wore VitalSleep, they also measured their blood oxygen saturation using a pulse oximeter. This was important to monitor to prove that the patient was able to breathe properly at night with the mouthpiece. The red line on the charts indicate the low oxygen point where it would be considered dangerous.

These recordings indicate that the patient was able to get adequate oxygen during the time they wore the VitalSleep mouthpiece at night.
