If your partner snores like an F-16, maybe it's time to call in the NORAD forces.
No, not Adm. Sandy Winnefeld's crew from the North American Aerospace Defense Command based at Peterson Air Force Base.
Rather, NORAD of the oral appliances variety. No kidding. And just in time for Valentine's Day.
This item is a contraption that its inventor, Dr. Michael Gelb, says works wonders.
Here's a product description:
The NORAD is an FDA approved oral appliance for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. It is a "boil & bite" appliance which means it can be fit and delivered to a patient immediately without waiting for lab fabrication. This makes it an ideal temporary appliance to use when patients need to undergo dental work or if they've lost or damaged their existing appliance. The strong construction of the NORAD will hold up to many months and even years of use making this boil & bite appliance even more versitile.
Here's what it looks like:
Not very sexy, but perhaps just the thing for those insomniacs whose partners' wheezing, gasping, snorting and puffing rival the jet engines of the appliance's namesake.
