About our products
- Is the insertion painful?
Although there are differences between individuals regarding the sensation, the material used is very soft to minimize discomfort and maximize its effectiveness. Therefore, the probability of feeling pain is extremely low. In addition, a lubricating gel is provided to mitigate the discomfort effect.
Usually, after 2 or 3 nights the feeling of discomfort disappears completely.
- Is Back2Sleep effective in all cases of sleep apnea?
It is effective mainly when obstruction concerns the upper airways, it can be less effective in case of central sleep apnea. Consult your doctor to ensure the effectiveness of Back2Sleep in your case.
- Can the Back2Sleep stent be accidentally swallowed?
Thanks to its nasal clip, Back2Sleep is firmly held in place and is not at risk of being accidentally swallowed.
- Has Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment become useless?
As a method of treating sleep apnea, the CPAP machine and Back2Sleep have different characteristics, but they can be complementary. CPAP treatment is the reference and we advise you never to stop regular CPAP treatment without first consulting your doctor.
- Does Back2Sleep require any special precautions?
Avoid using it on damaged or irritated mucous membranes and make sure to follow the user manual, including the cleaning instructions before and after each use. You should also make sure to use the size (S, M, L or XL) that is suitable for your body type.
- How many times can each Back2Sleep tube be used?
Each tube can be used for 15 consecutive nights. Replace it with a new product every 15 days, whether it is used or not. In fact, due to cleaning cycles and ambient air, the tube loses its pressure resistance after 15 days from opening. After that, it loses its effectiveness and the airflow decreases with consequences on oxygen saturation.
Check before use, and if you see signs of discoloration, odor, or cracks or visual damage, stop immediately and replace with a new product.
- How to choose the right length (S, M, L, or XL)?
Choosing the right size that fits your body type can be complex. We recommend starting with the Starter Kit, which contains all the lengths.
Start with the shortest one and look for the length that prevents snoring. Then, try the larger size to see if it is more comfortable. Choose the length that is both effective and comfortable.
It is important to listen to your sensations:
- If the tube is too short, it may cause a real and significant feeling of discomfort and inconvenience, and the device will not be effective.
- If the end of the tube reaches the uvula, it can stick to the tube, causing discomfort in the soft palate.
- If the end of the tube reaches the base of the tongue, it may be pushed back by it.
In all 3 cases, choose a longer tube length.
- What are the storage and preservation conditions for Back2Sleep?
Store the Back2Sleep tubes and gel in a clean and dry place, away from heat (between 4°C and 40°C) and sunlight, in their original packaging. See the specific storage conditions for the gel on its own packaging and comply with them.
