The effects of sleep deprivation by those suffering from various disorders can have a substantial impact on their health and appearance.

Job performance can suffer as well and a vitality for life can be noticeably missing for sufferers.

These help keep the airway open during sleep and the characteristic pauses and snoring are eliminated so that the rejuvenating effects of sleep can more fully be realized.
