THE PROVEN CPAP ALTERNATIVE
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 Sleep Apnea Therapy may be your dream come true!
THE BEST WAY TO START PROVENT THERAPY
The Provent Therapy Starter Kit includes three phases of Provent patches -- 2 nights of Phase 1 low resistance patches, 2 nights of Phase 2 medium resistance patches, and 26 nights of Phase 3 standard resistance patches. The Starter Kit's convenient phased approach helps you adapt to breathing with Provent Therapy at your own pace, ensuring successful, and convenient sleep therapy. Studies show that patients who begin therapy with the Starter Kit are more successful and comfortable with Provent in the long term.
SIMPLE & EFFECTIVE OSA THERAPY
Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is clinically proven across all levels of Obstructive Sleep Apnea -- mild, moderate and severe. Provent Therapy works much like CPAP, except instead of a bulky machine with tubing and a mask, your own breathing creates the pressure that keeps your airway open.
Each night before bed Provent patches are applied directly to the nostrils. As you breathe in Provent's proprietary MicroValves open so inhalation feels normal and is nearly unobstructed. As you breathe out Provent's MicroValves close, restricting airflow and creating resistance known as Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP). This EPAP is how Provent works, keeping your airway open and enabling natural airflow while you sleep.
FDA CLEARED & AMERICAN MADE
Proudly made in the USA, Provent is the only product of its kind cleared for the treatment of OSA; and it is available by prescription only. A standard CPAP or BiPAP prescription is not valid for the purchase of Provent. Provent prescriptions must state "Provent" or "EPAP Therapy" or something similar.

IDEAL FOR HOME & TRAVEL
Provent devices are small enough to slip into a purse or pocket, making Provent Therapy ideal for travel, but they're comfortable and effective too so they're great at home. Provent Therapy does not require a machine or make noise so you and your partner can sleep better together. And Provent devices do not require electricity, giving you the freedom to sleep anytime, 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
Though it seems simple, there are a few things to know before you start Provent Therapy to ensure you have the best experience. The instructional video below will walk you through how to apply the Provent Device correctly and provide you tips to adjust to wearing it. Provent may feel uncomfortable at first or you may hear vibrations when you talk. You will feel resistance to breathing out through your nose. This is normal and it is how Provent Therapy works. We suggest you put Provent on right before you plan on falling asleep. Incorporate it into your routine. Give your self time to adjust to Provent and it'll be worth it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is Provent Therapy?
Provent Therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The Provent Nasal Device uses a valve design that attaches over the nostrils and is secured in place with hypoallergenic adhesive. The valve opens and closes, redirecting air through small holes to create resistance when breathing out. Because Provent Therapy is a small, single use, disposable device, it's also discreet and very convenient.
- What is EPAP
Provent Therapy utilizes a proprietary MicroValve technology developed by Ventus Medical. The device attaches over the nostrils with a hypoallergenic adhesive. During inhalation, the valve opens, allowing the user to breathe in freely. When exhaling, the valve closes and air passing through the nose is directed through two small air channels. This increases the pressure in the airway (called EPAP or expiratory positive airway pressure), maintains pressure and helps to keep the airway open until the start of the next inhalation.
- Is Provent Therapy Right for Me?
Provent Therapy may not be appropriate for everyone. If you have been diagnosed with OSA and are considering Provent Therapy, you should speak to your physician to evaluate your individual medical needs.
- How is Provent different from Theravent?
Provent and Theravent devices both use patented EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure) technology; however overall design and resistance levels of each product are different. Theravent patches fit over the base of the nose, covering both nostrils during sleep, and their relatively wide MicroValve mesh is designed to help eliminate snoring. Provent patches are smaller, with one patch for each nostril, and have a tighter MicroValve mesh that provides the greater resistance required to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
- How does the resistance level of Provent compare to Theravent?
- Theravent LITE = Half the resistance of Theravent Regular
- Theravent Regular = Half the resistance of Theravent MAX
- Theravent MAX = Half the resistance of regular Provent
- Provent Phase 1 = Roughly equivalent to Theravent Regular
- Provent Phase 2 = Roughly equivalent to Theravent MAX
- Provent Phase 3 (Regular Provent) = Full therapeutic level
- Does Provent Therapy Stop Snoring?
Clinical studies have shown that 83% of patients experienced a snoring reduction with Provent Therapy. Among OSA patients that snore, Provent Therapy virtually eliminated snoring in 58% of patients.
- Why is it Important to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
There is no cure for obstructive sleep apnea. Untreated OSA has a number of potential serious side effects. These include excessive daytime sleepiness, increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, depression, increased risk or worsening of heart failure, and increased likelihood of driving or work-related accidents.
- How is Provent Therapy Different from CPAP Therapy?
Constant Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) increases the pressure on both inhalation and exhalation. Provent Therapy increases the pressure on exhalation only. CPAP increases pressure in the airway using forced air, while Provent Therapy uses the patient's own breathing to create pressure during exhalation.
- Can Provent Therapy Replace my CPAP Machine?
If you are not using your CPAP machine all night, every night then ask your physician about non-CPAP alternatives including Provent Therapy. Only you and your physician can decide what therapy is best for you. For help speaking to your doctor download the Provent Therapy Physician's Information Guide (PDF).
- Can I Use Provent if I'm a Mouth Breather?
As with CPAP therapy, Provent Therapy users who may be mouth breathing during sleep may benefit from the use of a chinstrap.
- Can I Use This Device with my CPAP?
Provent Therapy cannot be used together with a CPAP machine, but some users find that it's more convenient to use Provent when traveling and CPAP when at home.
- How Do I Talk to my Doctor About Provent Therapy?
If you are interested in speaking to your doctor about Provent Therapy, download our Provent Therapy Physician's Information Guide from the literature section of this page.
- What can I expect from my initial experience with Provent?
After you apply the Provent Device, you should notice the resistance created as you try to exhale. Generally, users get used to this feeling after wearing for several nights. For tips on how to breathe and how you will feel download the "Provent Therapy Tips For Success" Brochure available on this page.
- Will Provent Therapy work for me?
Provent Therapy does not work for everyone. In recent clinical studies, 72% of obstructive sleep apnea sufferers were successfully treated by Provent Therapy. Contact your physician to see if Provent is right for you.
- Is Provent Therapy safe?
Yes, Provent Therapy can be used safely. In recent clinical studies, no severe, device-related adverse events were reported. Read the Provent Therapy Instructions for Use located elsewhere on this page for a complete list of warnings, precautions and contraindications.
- Can Provent Therapy be used in children?
No, the safety and effectiveness of Provent Therapy in children under the age of 18 has not been established.
- Is Provent Therapy covered by my insurance?
As Provent Therapy is relatively new, it may not be covered by all insurance plans or prescription programs. In many cases, tax-free, flexible spending accounts may be used to cover the cost of Provent Therapy. If you have concerns about whether Provent will be covered, contact your healthcare provider prior to placing your order to be sure.

Customer service was great. Not a fan of this product at all, however. I cannot sleep comfortably with it. And I just cannot get used to it.
Hello Provent, Goodbye Machine.

I've been using Provent for a month now and I am thrilled! I have now packed away my CPAP machine and sleep better than I ever did with it. Very little adjustment time for me and it's wonderful to turn over to sleep on my other side without having to reposition hoses... and my cat. Okay, I still have to reposition the cat. But what do you expect? Cats rule the world. I love Provent. Come on, insurance. Catch up with us and cover this!

I have had trouble for years and absolutely knew that I could NOT use a "machine". My husband found this through some research. I have been using the Provent for 8 months. I could not tell you all day long how totally satisfied I am!!! This has made a world of difference that I never thought possible!!!

I tried the starter kit and was unable to tolerate my nares being covered. I felt like I was suffocating.
Use of provent to treat snoring
Written By: Michael Asimow, Menlo Park CA 11/14/2016
I have mild sleep apnea which causes snoring. I realize you don't market the device to stop snoring but the apnea and snoring are closely connected for me. A friend had good success with Provent to stop snoring. For me, it was a complete failure. I tried it with and without a chin strap. It did not help with snoring at all and it seriously interrupted my sleep. I had to take a sleeping pill nearly every night after use for about 12 nights (with phase 3). I suggest you say in your marketing materials that Provent is NOT a remedy for snoring and that many people cannot adapt to it.

It is a little difficult to get to sleep thinking to breath out through your mouth, but it works good when you are sleeping.
Can't imagine anyone finding this comfortable
Written By: Vanessa, Denver 11/5/2016
I used the Provent device as directed. Even the beginner set was very uncomfortable. I couldn't wear it, couldn't fall asleep very easily, and when I did fall asleep I wasn't breathing through the device, like it said I would. I would wake up very uncomfortable and need to remove it immediately. I continued as directed for over a week. Lost more sleep than if I was snoring. Its just too uncomfortable to work!

I purchased the starter kit that has 2 nights of "light" valves, 2 nights of "medium", and then 26 "therapy" level valves.
The first 4 nights were not bad. On the 5th night, which is also the first night of the "therapeutic" level valves I noticed a much greater restriction with breathing out of my nose. This was to be expected as the instructions clearly stated that that would be the case. I slept fine that evening. The instructions say to "relax", and that's mainly to settle yourself down as you need to start breathing slower and not as deeply as when you are awake.
On the 6th night my issues started. The biggest issue is that the valves, both of them, lost their adhesion and the bottoms let go at some point in the night. I noticed them the next morning. The next night I had issues trying to fall asleep because I have a tendency to need to take VERY deep breathes when I first lay down to sleep. Per the advice of the instructions I would take my deep breathes through my nose and the valves, and then exhale through my mouth. Eventually I would relax enough in order to transition to nose breathing and fall asleep. The night the vales blew out, lost adhesion again, and at the same location at the bottom, or right below my nose. I suspect this is happening because of my lung capacity and my need to breathe out with some force. I think either the adhesive is not holding my exhale force, or the adhesive is bad on the this batch of valves. Either way, the valves are not holding for me and thus are doing no good.
I have contacted Provent directly and they send me the same instructions regarding placement making sure I wash with soap and water to completely clean and then dry around my nose, which I have been doing all along. In my case, the valves are simply not holding. Provent wants to send me a new pack of valves in order to evaluate if the problem may be a defective adhesive on the pack I bought. I think that is very fair, and I will give that a try. I hope that I can resume trying these valves again as I think they may be doing some good, but I really need more time/days in order to fully evaluate if they are for me.
My only other issue is comfort. I find the valves a bit uncomfortable. Once I have the valves in place and they are stuck, the front of my nose feels like it's being pinched. It's not a crazy "get this off me now!" feeling, but it's not comfortable imo, you KNOW it's there.
Also, breathing out through the valves is heavy as they are designed to do this. But, that's the part that takes getting used to. A few times I have felt almost like I'm choking because I can't expel the air from my lungs in the full and fast amount I want to. I'll give the new box a try and update.
Not for me

Seems well constructed and like the idea of portability when traveling but difficult to use for me and dont want to sacrifice multiple nights trying to get used to it when my CPAP machine works fine.
