This is the video review for the Respironics Premium Chinstrap</b>. This is a very good and an effective CPAP chin strap</b>. It's really one of the best out there.
They've awarded the word “premium” to it, and I think, rightfully so. However, it has some weaknesses depending on your situation. Let me explain and show you.
In my opinion, based on much feedback that I have received, The Respironics Premium Chin Strap is not appropriate if you have a really small head.
How do you know if you have a big or small head ?
1. Ask somebody. Ask a family member or a friend.
2. Just look at your current CPAP mask and the CPAP head gear. If it says medium and it feels too big for you, you're most likely a smaller head person.
By the way, the reason why you see the Respironics Premium Chin Strap slipping of the chin is because the width of the chinstrap right here is too big. You'll be swimming in it. It’ll be very uncomfortable (if you have a small head).
This Respironics Premium Chin Strap comes in one-size fits most.
The Velcro is very strong, However, usually around the sixth month, you'll likely find that it becomes weaker.
Now, how long it really lasts depend on your usage. If you're somebody who goes really, really tight and you wash this a lot, especially if you go really, really tight, then the life span of this Velcro is limited. But, usually around six months is what it lasts, at least. I know many people make it last close to a year, but at least every six months.
The success rate of using this CPAP Chin Strap for men with beards or goatees is very good, compared to all the other types.
If you're an active sleeper , somebody who moves around in bed a lot, you roll all over the place, this tends to stay in place. Can you see this here? They put this slit here and then they put this back strap here. This strap really helps secure this CPAP Chinstrap in place.
One of the issues for people with this is sometimes it feels like it touches people here on the side of the face by the ear.
If you have a smaller face, guarantee this Respironics Premium Chin Strap will cover your ear.
Some of the complaints that I have received are that it makes their face feel warm from using this Respironics CPAP Chin
However, from many others, I have not heard complaints of it being too warm. So it's a 50/50 thing.
One interesting fact about this Respironics CPAP Chinstrap, if you read the guide, they tell you that you can actually wash this in the washing machine. Just use the cold delicate cycle.
Now, I want to show you the width of it. This white one here is the Respironics Deluxe Chin Strap made by the same company, Respironics. It's white, just as good as this. Since this one is white, it tends to get dirty quicker. But because this is so wide in size, it feels comfortable in how it cradles the average chin.
This is the ResMed. It's a little smaller. Then you have the Ruby CPAP Chinstraps.
