How do Max-Air Nose Cones and Sinus Cones Differ from Other Remedies?

The advantage of the Cones is that they are adhesive-free, made without latex (latex-free), and drug-free; and, they are soft and specifically designed for reliable comfort and extended use. They are also reusable for maximum value and convenient use.

Because the Cones are a nasal dilator device, you are in control of your nasal breathing relief. Feel increased breathing volume immediately as soon as you put them in – no waiting for hours or weeks for relief, or having to take medications when you don’t need them. Use them only when you need maximum relief and only as long as you need breathing relief. Simple-to-try and easy-to-use, our nasal cones make an perfect addition to your healthcare choices for staying healthy, active and well rested.

The beauty of the Nose Cones is the quality of your sleep.

How soft and safe are your Nose Cones nasal dilators?

The FDA-certified medical grade materials were carefully selected after extensive testing for their superior properties of soft-comfort, yet resilient stenting-action.

Their materials are ISO-10993 certified, proven hypoallergenic, latex-free, and are safe for extended wear, and use with all medications, CPAP, oral-appliance therapy, and inside a nasal cannula with oxygen.
How does it feel the first time that you use the Sinus Cones or Max-Air Nose Cones?

The first time that you wear the new Max-Air Nose Cones and Sinus Cones you may be surprised at the comfort and amount of breathing relief that you feel. In fact, in a recent clinical study, Max-Air Nose Cones were shown to increase breathing volume by a whopping 110%. Breathing easily, deeply and fully, feels amazing.

Getting started: to acclimate your nose to the Sinus Cones or new, Max-Air Nose Cones, we suggest that you place the Cones in your nasal airways a couple of times in advance of wearing them to bed. Try inhaling a few times to see what maximum relief feels like. Allow a couple of minutes to adjust to the feel of the soft framework of the nasal cones in your nose, as you swivel them around and adjust the angle to insure maximum airflow.

(Most people find that wearing the Cones is similar to putting on a pair of sunglasses. You can feel them at first, and then, within minutes, you forget that they are there. For others there is an acclimation period of a couple of nights. There should never be any discomfort when wearing our products. If there is discomfort from wearing our products, discontinue use immediately.)

How are Doctor Recommended Max-Air Nose Cones & Sinus Cones Right for Me?

If you are tired from sleep loss due to snoring, nasal congestion, a deviated septum, sinusitis, frequent head colds, sinus infections, blocked nose or collapsed nose and are seeking high performance, drug-free, comfortable, reliable breathing relief, then Max-Air Nose Cones or Sinus Cones may be a good choice to try.

What is the difference between the Max-Air Nose Cones and the Sinus Cones?

The Max-Air Nose Cones and the Sinus Cones are both designed to hold the nasal airway open. Deciding which product depends on the severity of the nasal airway obstruction. The Sinus Cones is our original product. The material is slightly firmer for extra support and is a whitish opaque color. The Sinus Cones also have a little clip that goes on the outside of the nose.

The Sinus Cones are generally recommended for more severe nasal airway collapse and superior decongestant control for chronic sinus or nasal congestion.

The Max-Air Nose Cones is our newest product and is made with the softest material that we offer, for greater comfort and improved fit. The Max-Air Nose Cones are also transparent for practically invisible wear and do not have a little clip so that they can be placed almost fully inside the nose.

The Max-Air Nose Cones are generally recommended for deviated septum relief, to stop snoring, to aid breathing inside CPAP or with oral appliances, or for breathing problems that are only present during sleep.

Can I reuse the Max-Air Nose Cones and Sinus Cones, and when should I replace them?

The Cones are reusable and each box contains a 3-month supply. (IMPORTANT, SINCE THE MATERIAL DEGRADES WITH USE, DO NOT EXCEED MANUFACTURERS RECOMMENDED LENGTH OF USE.)

How do I clean my Max-Air Nose Cones and Sinus Cones?

The Max-Air Nose Cones and Sinus Cones are easy to clean for maximum value. First, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly. Once your hands are clean, then soak your Sinus Cones or Max-Air Nose Cones in hydrogen peroxide for 10 minutes, then rinse them thoroughly in hot tap water, and shake dry. DO NOT USE SOAP, as it may leave a residue, which may irritate the mucosal lining of the nose.

Be sure to clean the Sinus Cones and Max-Air Nose Cones before each use. You may find it easy to store them in your medicine cabinet, so that you can rinse them and pop them in just after you brush your teeth for bed. The Cones may be slipped in while they are still warm to sooth and comfort your nose.
