Cirrus Health Care Products Earplanes Sponsor Spotlight Review

We recently got to try these new kind of earplugs for Adults and Children, but not by an airplane since we haven't been anywhere with the weather constantly changing, I don't like to get caught owing a motel room and we cancel.  So, we just tried them around here. We live in the mountains of North Georgia and they have some pretty steep hill and such, and I have heard my hears pop so I knew this would be the next best thing to do with the earlugs rather an expensive airline ticket.
When you go up what they call Blood Mountain, you will have your ears popped. Then coming back down on the other side, you will have them pop a second time. So, that is why we decided to go ahead and use them before we go on vacation to a beach.  They actually have one size for children and one size for adults.
I believe that I got these right. I wasn't expecting them to show almost the same size in the pictures because in looking at them in your hands, they are smaller.  So, if I mixed them up, sorry about that but I couldn't tell which one was what. I shouldn't have blown them up so much and when they are put side by side, they actually do look alike.
Maybe you guys can figure it out because I am afraid that I can't. They look too much alike.
Well, wait a minute these above me are a little fatter or wider at the bottom than the ones at the top so I bet the top ones must be for children. They look a tad longer and leaner. They even have Good Housekeeping's Seal of Approval so they must be pretty good in planes also. I know that they work on drives thru the mountains although we don't get up as high as an airplane.
Here are the benefits of the EarPlanes:
  • Approved by flight attendants
  • Recommended by doctors
  • Drug free
  • Made of hypoallergenic and latex free soft silicone
  • Comes in two sizes, Adult and Small for Kids and people with smaller ears
    I thought this was a nice side note to let you read when I saw it on Cirrus
    New study links dangerous ear problems to roller coaster rides.
    A study by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit indicates that pressure changes during roller coaster rides can cause ear problems similar to the effects of cabin air pressure changes on airplanes.
    EarPlanes, the pressure regulating earplug, has provided safe relief to millions of air travelers and can also provide the same relief to roller coaster riders. So before your next roller coaster ride make sure to take along a pack of EarPlanes.
    For the study from Henry Ford Hospital click here.

    The above diagram is to show you where they would go when putting the EarPlanes in your ears.
    Now, I don't know everything, especially when you start talking like a doctor does so I just copied this one question and answer that I thought might help you to understand why they made these EarPlane plugs the way that they did:
    How Do EarPlanes Work?
    A: EarPlanes consist of two elements: a hypoallergenic silicone ear plug and a ceramic pressure regulator. The silicone earplug has four circumferential rings which provide an airtight seal between the product and ear canal. The ceramic element is a controlled porosity filter, one end of which is exposed to the external cabin pressure, with the opposite end exposed to the sealed chamber formed when the ear plug is inserted in the ear.
    Thus, as the cabin air pressure changes, a pressure differential is created across the ceramic filter, thereby causing air to flow through the filter. The filter acts as an impedance to the flow of air into and out of the ear canal.
    Discomfort is caused by blockage and/or swelling of a passengers Eustachian tube(s). The air pressure changes induced by the aircraft's descent are too rapid for the blocked Eustachian tubes to adjust properly.
    However, EarPlanes, provide an equal but opposite impedance on the exterior of the middle ear, allowing relief. Discomfort is reduced because the air pressure difference on the exterior and interior of the middle ear is lessened allowing the Eustachian tubes to function more normally.
    Who Should use EarPlanes? EarPlanes are intended for people with sensitive ears or people who must fly even though suffering with a cold, allergy or sinus condition. A pediatric version is available for children 1 to 11 years of age.

    We do not recommend use of EarPlanes in the event of severe sinus congestion (completely blocked Eustachian tubes).

    I threw in the ages because I wanted to make sure that you got the right ones and that they worked okay for you.

    Hey, they even have cartoon characters for their earplugs! Here is SpongeBob:

    There is also Dora the Explorer and Hello Kitty also!  I think I have seen it all now! Who would have thought of Hello Kitty Ear Plugs?  They even have NFL plugs for those of you that have to have everything that their team has or has a logo on!
