What Is Provent

Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy

How does Provent work?

People diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea who could not adjust to CPAP therapy now have another option.

People diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea who could not adjust to CPAP therapy now have another option. Provent is approved for the treatment of OSA. The Provent MicroValve is placed over each nostril to create airway pressure preventing airway collapse. The one-use device is discarded in the morning. For people new to Provent, the manufacturer recommends the Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy 30 Day Starter Kit with graduated levels to assist in the adjustment period. Manufactured by Provent Sleep Therapy, LLC.

How Provent Compares to CPAP

CPAP Provent
  Bulky face mask attached to a machine   Small, lightweight, disposable and convenient
  Can Interfere with bed partner's sleep   Does not distrub bed partner's sleep
  May not work in the event of electrical outage   Is not affected by electrical outage
  Difficult to travel with   30-day supply easilt fits in a purse or pocket
  Forced air may dry out nose and mouth   Can breathe normally using ambient air

  • Provent treats Sleep Apnea without using a mask and CPAP machine. It may be an option for a person who has given up on CPAP therapy.
  • Provent makes contact only with the nares, or the area around nasal openings. There are no straps or buckles. Someone who has never found a nasal mask that worked for them may find Provent a fit.
  • Provent provides treatment for OSA using only a very small and unique nasal device. It is another option for people diagnosed with OSA who have never begun treatment because the machine and mask were uncomfortable.
  • Traveling with a CPAP set up can be frustrating. Provent greatly lightens the load when traveling.
  • A person experiencing claustrophobia may be unable to wear a mask. Provent, however, only covers the nasal opening.

The unique MicroValve of Provent is placed just inside each nostril, using the cone to guide placement. Provent secured in place using hypoallergenic adhesive, similar to a band aid, which was developed with Johnson & Johnson. As the user exhales, the air is channeled through small openings in the MicroValve creating pressure keeping the airway open. This is much like the pressure delivered by a CPAP machine. As the user inhales the valve opens to allow airflow into the body. Provent increases pressure only during exhalation unlike CPAP which increases airflow during both inhalation and exhalation.
