Are you looking for an alternative to CPAP therapy, having trouble staying compliant, or not currently treating your OSA at all? If so then simple, disposable, convenient PROVENT THERAPY may be your dream come true!
Provent Therapy is a disposable, nightly-use nasal device placed just inside the nostrils and held securely in place with hypoallergenic adhesive. Provent is FDA Approved and only available with a prescription. Prescriptions must state "Provent" or "Provent Therapy." A standard CPAP/BiPAP prescription is not valid for the purchase of Provent.
Provent Therapy uses a proprietary MicroValve design that creates pressure when you exhale to keep your airway open. It is small and disposable, making it discreet and very convenient. If you’re looking for an alternative to CPAP -- for daily use or as an alternative when you're away from home -- ask your doctor if Provent Therapy could help get you back on treatment.
PROVENT IN THE NEWS
HOW PROVENT THERAPY WORKS
Provent Therapy works much like CPAP therapy, except instead of an external machine, your own breathing creates the pressure that keeps your airway open.
The Provent Nasal Device fits over both nostrils and uses a proprietary MicroValve design that creates pressure which keeps the airway open. As you inhale, airflow is nearly unobstructed, allowing for normal breathing. As you exhale, the MicroValve closes, directing air through small air channels, increasing resistance. This resistance creates EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure), which props open the airway until you inhale again.
Like CPAP, Provent nasal devices need to be worn every night to effectively relieve symptoms of OSA. It may take time before you start to feel like you’re sleeping normally and waking up refreshed.
For many patients, the Provent Device is an effective treatment for OSA while allowing them more freedom to travel, enjoy their sleep partner, and live their lives. Provent devices are small enough to slip into a purse or pocket, making Provent Therapy ideal for travel. Provent Therapy does not require a machine or make noise, allowing you and your partner to sleep better together. And Provent devices do not require electricity, giving you the freedom to sleep anywhere. Provent Therapy is simple, comfortable, and maintenance-free; you use a fresh set of devices every night and simply throw away the used set each morning.
GETTING STARTED WITH PROVENT THERAPY
Provent Therapy is clinically proven to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and reduce OSA-related snoring and daytime sleepiness. Though it seems simple, there are a few things to know. The instructional video below will walk you through how to apply the Provent Device correctly and provide you tips to adjust to wearing it. Similar to other medical therapies, Provent Therapy requires some period of adjustment. Some people get used to it right away, while others need time and help. But patients agree—its worth it.
It may feel uncomfortable at first or you may hear vibration when you talk. You will feel resistance to breathing out through your nose. This is normal and is how Provent Therapy works. We suggest you put Provent on right before you plan on falling asleep. Incorporate it into your routine. Use the entire box—many patients need a week or more to get used to sleeping with the device in place. So give it time.
