NED Use Instructions
Getting Started with NED
NED uses the power of your own breath to silence snoring and improve sleep. You should be able to feel a slight back pressure when you breath out. It feels like a long, slow, deep breath. The gentle resistance is part of the magic of the NED Device.
With the NED Dial, you can dial in the perfect anti-snoring strength.
- Open "Window" = Lighter Strength
- More Closed "Window" = Higher Strength
- Completely Closed "Window" = Maximum Strength
To get started with NED simply put the tubes (nasal dilators) in your nose and go to sleep.
Over the course of a few nights, turns the dial to find the "window" position which works best for you.
Important things to keep in mind:
Many people need a few nights to feel comfortable wearing the device throughout the entire night. Some soreness is common and expected.
- Putting the NED Device in Your Nose: If you are having any trouble getting the NED Device in your nose, rinse the tubes under water. This lubrication will help the NED Device slide into place.
- During sleep, if you wake up and NED is causing any discomfort, take it out then try again the next night. It can take a few nights before feeling totally comfortable sleeping with NED throughout the entire night.
- If the back pressure is too much, turn the dials to open the "window" until finding the balance between slower exhalation and anti-snore strength. Turn the dials to close the "window" to increase the snore strength over time (as needed).
- You may find it easier to breathe through your mouth initially. That's completely fine. The body will naturally switch to breathing through the nose as you fall asleep.
- If the device is falling out while you sleep, this is most commonly from unconsciously removing it at night as the body isn't yet use to sleeping with NED. Over time the body adapts. If it continues to fall out, you may need a different size. For active sleepers, you may need to use a head strap to secure the device in place.
- See and hear how well it's working by using a smartphone app that records snoring. Record a few nights without the device, while it's shipping to your residence, then once it arrives, record your sleep using the NED Device (at various dial positions). And, if you don't mind, share your change with us - we love hearing about all the silent nights!
Here are answers to the most frequent questions.
