The ResMed chin restraint is a small and adjustable chinstrap which comes in a one-size-fits-all made from soft and durable fabric.
A chinstrap may be a useful way for a nasal pillows or nasal mask user to prevent the mouth from opening.
CPAP works by using pressurized air to splint the airways open and when excessive air leaks from the mouth (or the mask) the open circuit may reduce the overall pressure of air reaching the site of obstruction.
A chinstrap may also reduce the following symptoms if due to mouth leak:
- Dry mouth
- Waking-up at night due to the feeling of air rushing through the mouth
- Bull-frogging (air bubbling in lips and cheeks)
- Aerophagia (air swallowing).
