Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 27, 2017)
  • Snoring Severity Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline and 10 Days ]
    The Snoring Severity Scale (SSS) is a 9-point, validated scale to measure the severity of snoring. A total of three questions are asked: 1) "How often do you snore, 2) "How long do you snore", and 3) How audible is your snoring. Answers for each of these questions are summed for a total SSS score. A score of '0' would indicate no snoring at all, while a score of '9' would indicate the most severe snoring as measured by the SSS. Outcome measure reported as change with use of the device over pre-trial. In this case, a negative ('-') would represent improvement in snoring symptoms, while a positive ('+') number would indicate an increase in snoring severity.
  • Visual-Analogue Scale, Self-Reported Snoring Habits [ Time Frame: Baseline and 10 Days ]
    Quantitative assessment on 1-10 scale. Outcome measurement reported as a percentage change from pre-trial with use of the device. A negative ('-') percentage would indicate a reduction in snoring symptoms as measured by the VAS, while a positive percentage ('+') result would indicate an increase in the measured symptom.
