AirWare, Inc., Maker of Brez(R) Premium Breathing Aids Offers Tips for Safely and Soundly Springing Ahead During the Switch to Daylight Savings Time
Date:3/4/2009

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- AirWare, Inc., maker of Brez premium nasal breathing aids, the first commercially available device for inside the nose that is clinically proven to reduce snoring and increase overall sleep quality for the bed partner, today released five tips to help consumers easily transition to Daylight Savings Time. The company asked Michael J. Breus, Ph.D., a leading sleep specialist certified in clinical sleep disorders and author of Beauty Sleep, to offer some easy to follow methods for coping with the transition to one less hour of sleep.

"Daylight Savings Time certainly has benefits, but it is not without downsides for those who are already sleep deprived," said Dr. Breus. "Many people are surprised to learn that the highest incidences of traffic accidents occur the Monday following the time shift, because people are too tired to concentrate fully on the task of driving."

According to Dr. Breus, the following tips can help ease the transition to Daylight Savings Time and help combat sleep deprivation that may occur during this time of year:

1) Alarm Yourself

Most people use alarm clocks to wake up. At least two days prior to the time change, begin setting the bedside alarm clock for a "turn in" time that is between 15 and 30 minutes earlier than you usually go to sleep. In addition, plan to set the "wake up" time 15 minutes earlier to make it easier for your body to adjust to the new schedule.

2) Enforce A Family Curfew

Children require more sleep than adults and are more sensitive to loss of sleep. To avoid dealing with groggy or irritable children preparing for school on Monday, parents may want to consider putting kids to bed 30-45 minutes earlier starting the Friday night before the time change.

3) Commute Astutely: Avoid The Morning Rush

Because so many traffic accidents happen the Monday following the time change, see if your boss will let you telecommute for the first few hours of the day or arrive later so that you can commute after the morning rush. You'll be better rested so making up the extra hour or two will be easier and safer.

4) Silence is Golden

It is well known that sleeping next to a snoring bed partner, animal or child can cause people to lose about an hour of sleep each evening. Coupling this sleep loss with that of Daylight Savings Time means even more sleep loss. Consider appropriate alternatives to reducing noise in your bedroom.

5) Hang Out With Your Pillow

A good night's sleep begins with a good pillow. Replace your pillow once a year. Daylight Savings Time is a good reminder to ensure your pillow is adequate. Try this: Hang your existing pillow over your arm. If it hangs there limply like a saddle on either side it's time to replace it, because the support is gone.

One of the top health concerns associated with snoring is interrupted sleep for both the snorer and bed partner. An inability to maintain continuous sleep could lead to health consequences caused by sleep deprivation such as excessive sleepiness during the day, irritability, and a lack of productivity. People who snore chronically should discuss their condition with a physician, because it can be a symptom of sleep apnea (a reduction or cessation of breathing during sleep), a deviated septum or more serious health risks such as high blood pressure, strokes, and heart disease.

Data from an independent clinical study involving snorers with snoring (non-apneic) bed partners showed that those who used Brez experienced a 52 percent decrease in snoring events from an average of 1247 to 654. Snorers who used the device had only a 22.4 percent likelihood of persistent snoring and disturbing their bed partner's sleep compared to their pre-treatment scores of 100 percent. Both findings were statistically significant (p<0.05).

"Interrupted sleep caused by primary snoring is really a year-round issue, but Daylight Savings Time really drives home the impact of lost sleep," said Mindi S. Osborn, President & CEO, AirWare, Inc. "These helpful tips combined with the proven clinical performance of Brez premium nasal breathing aids help us further our mission of becoming the caring sleep experts consumers can turn to for a better night's sleep."
