Do you sleep with a snorer?

Medical professionals have condemned the use of wax and foam ear plugs for sleeping, often used by partners of snorers.

Having got a disposable ear plug stuck in her ear, Lucy Holden writes in the Daily Mail (31st January 2017), “It took half an hour to get the whole thing out and it was agonising. My right ear also had to be microsuctioned.”

Michael Wareing, a consultant ENT surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in London, is quoted as advising those who need to wear earplugs to use custom-made silicone ones, “which fit perfectly”.

Mercury Hearing provides a wide range of custom-fitted ear plugs, from sleep plugs to Bluetooth units specifically for music-lovers.
