The Halo chin strap keeps the mouth closed when you are using a nasal or pillow style mask for sleep apnea therapy. The CPAP pressure delivered from your therapy device can blow the mouth open, especially if you are on a high CPAP setting.
Halo Chin Strap is a reusable accessory worn by a sleep apnea patient to keep the mouth closed during sleep. The Halo® Chin Strap is a chin support of unique design for comfort and stability. The chin support itself is made of a breathable, flexible fabric with two adjustable Velcro® ends that feed through the one-piece halo that is worn over the crown of the head. The user may tighten/loosen the fit by adjusting the chin strap on either side of the head. The Halo® Chin Strap will accommodate a wide range of head sizes up to a maximum circumference of 26" from chin to crown of head. For a sleep apnea chin strap that offers more individual adjustability and fits a wider range of head sizes, please see our Cross Bar Chin Strap.
Air leaks severely reduce the effects of your prescribed CPAP therapy, causing you to wake up with a dry mouth, feeling tired, and needing more rest. Other options to consider for eliminating mouth breathing would be to try a full-face-style CPAP mask that covers the nose and the mouth. Waking with mouth dryness can be an indicator that your mouth is falling open during sleep.
The sizing is very large and cannot be adjusted enough to make it smaller. Material is thick and bulky. Not the product that was pictured on the web site in early Nov.2023 which I ordered but photo has now been updated since I raised the issue with the company.
