Great for Travel!


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!

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.

proven powerful portable cpap alternative

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. Click here to download a Provent Prescription Form to bring to your doctor.

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.

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.

  • 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.

    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!

  • Worst Case Of Sleep Apnea Ever Seen

    Thats what I was told by my doc. Had it for over 10 years CPAP Was a ridiculous attempt for me & believe me I tried. Every new machine. Every new mask. While I know its been life saving & necessary for some could not make it work for me! Desperate I was looking into surgery & found PROVENT. After the first night a bit of tossing & turning. By the 2nd I awoke refreshed well rested & alive for the first time in many MANY years!!! Something so simple gave me my life back Literally! I was thoroughly exhausted & had given up hope on the quality of life at the age of 47 & otherwise youthful & very healthy. If I sound a bit over dramatic well thats the effect PROVENT had on me, an incredibly Over dramatic result after just one night. I'm that excited & had to share!!

    This was the last option for me to treat sleep apnea. For me it was cheaper to pay for also. I adjusted to it immediately, I only felt a little bit of the feeling of a band aid on my nose. The first night I used it I slept the entire night. I had not done this in almost a year. Almost 30 days later still having no issues.

  • Provent Sleep Apnea Miracle!!

    Provent has given me such a lift in life. I have had sleep apnea for over 16 years and up until discovering Provent I was on a CPAP machine. It helped me to a degree but I would still wake up in the morning feeling groggy and would still need a mid-day nap. Since I started using the Provent about 6 weeks ago, I now wake up feeling refreshed and I no longer require a mid-day nap. I sleep better through the night and I don't wake up with lines on my face like I did with the CPAP mask. That's just an extra bonus!

  • The only thing I can use

    I am so grateful I found these. I could not tolerate CPAP - spent weeks without sleeping through the night, my partner would roll over on the tubes, bang my mask into my face. These are small, lightweight and work well enough to silence my snoring and keep my airways open. I wish they weren't so expensive, and that insurance would cover them, but I'm just so happy they're there.

No matter where and when I travel, whether overnight or on a plane or long vacation, I always have Provent on me to get me through the night.

    We are on an extended trip that will include some remote and primitive locations. Although I am successful in using the CPAP, I did not want to lug the machine and indeed it's use would be impossible in a few of the scheduled stays. The Provent system has been a welcome solution to this problem. Direct home medical was helpful and efficient in getting the product to me prior to the trip in a very short time.

    I've been using Provent for about a year. When falling asleep, I agree it is uncomfortable to try to breathe through the nose. Breathe through your mouth to fall asleep and your breathing becomes less intense during sleep. I noticed that when I wake up, it is very easy to breathe through Provent for the first few minutes.
    Written by Frank, 2014-02-27

    I can handle the restrictions on exhaling. I am used to that after using my cpap for 8 plus years but what I can get used to is the restrictions on INHALING. The product needs to be re-designed to allow less resistance to inhaling.

    After two difficult surgeries (both failures) and various other snore remedies, a friend told me about Provent.

But now we can sleep together happily.

  • Great Energy

    I have used a CPap Machine for 6 1/2 years. Only get about 1 hour of sleep before waking up because of turning and mask sliding so air is blowing away from where it is needed. Am on my 30 day starter kit and it is a dream come true. I sleep for at least 3 - 4 hours straight and feel refreshed in the morning. My eyes were dry from the use of the machine but with Provent they are not. Was using gel eye drops 4 - 6 times a day and had like a shade on my eyes. I am happy to say that is not longer happening - eye drops not more than once a day and many days without any. Had no problem getting use to it. I just recently shared a room on a trip and they said how great it was, no more escaping air waking them up. Looking forward to traveling without dragging the machine along. Thank you Provent. In the process of ordering a 90 day supply. Hopefully the letter my Dr. will be writing to Medicare stating Medical Necessary I will get it covered by Medicare - will continue using it even if it is not covered. Would be much cheaper for Medicare to cover this rather than the C Pap Machine and supplies.

  • Great Option!!!!

    This is really a great solution to my sleep apnea. Since my skin is very sensitive and would not tolerate the plastics and pressure of the CPAP/BIPAP. After they have updated the product several times over the last few years, the current model is the best. It sticks on well over 95% of the time and does not come off, which used to happen more often with the previous design. This is an excellent treatment for the sleep apnea and I can see a tremendous difference in my life. If you already have a CPAP/BIPAP, then consider this for travelling or if your spouse doesn't like the noise of the machine. And give yourself a few days or weeks to get used to this - it won't happen right away and the company data even encourages you to just remove and discard it part way through the night if you have difficulty. It only took me about 3 days to get pretty used to it and a few weeks to notice no issue. Just make sure that you have blown your nose before you put it on and watch yourself in the mirror to make sure that you don't have any loose edges. The biggest drawback is that these are single use and can't be reapplied. So if you have to remove it for any reason at night or even just to reapply it because it is not centered, it just won't stick. Also, the previous vendor was AWFUL and I regularly could not get my items. However, Direct Home Medical has been great and the online ordering is fabulous and easy. I also appreciate being able to pay through Paypal.

    I only tried Provent for one night, but that was so scary I don't know whether I'll try it again or not.

  • It works

    I've been snoring nightly and during naps for over 30 years, which has been getting more intense the last couple of years. When I saw a Mayo Clinic report on Theravant, I decided to try it. The product immediately minimized my snoring and some apnea. However, the single strips did not work so well, e.g., the one hole often gets creased and this prevents the product from working properly. Then I decided to try Provent, from the same company. These double strips for each nostril work just fine, every night. I also am regularly submitting my bills to Medicare; they might pay, but I do not know yet. If more users do this, there is a better chance of getting a bona fide Medicare billing number issued.

    This product works well for me, If anyone says they have problems getting them to stick or stay on, it is likely because they have oily skin. A quick swipe with an alcohol pad makes for a better seal. I went to my insurance provider and they have agreed to cover this item. I have to submit the claim using procedure code A9999. It took me about 4 reviews of the claim before they agreed to cover the item.

    Having tried the CPAP machine, I was delighted to find another, easier to use, more portable option. This will be much better to travel with. I find this easy, but hope that a smaller option will be available at some point. It would also be great if they marketed an adhesive that you could apply to these, so that you could use them more than one night.

  • wonderful device! Know how to use it!!

    The device works great if you use it correctly and follow directions. If you put it on wrong and some air leaks out, usually under the nose, the device works poorly and the product gets a bad rap. You can feel if it leaks by blowing out hard through your nose.When I mess it up I cut off a end of of a good band aid and tape it under my nose.

  • Provent sleep apnea therapy works with a little modification

    Provent sleep apnea therapy works, but it is hard to breathe through it when you are awake. So, what I do is leave one nostril partially open when I go to sleep. Then when I awaken shortly after falling asleep, I cover the open nostril completely, and fall back to sleep. I am then good for the night, as it is easy to breathe through it while sleeping. (Editors Note: There is no need to breathe through the Provent patches when falling asleep. You can breathe through your mouth as you fall asleep and then enjoy Provent therapy when you're asleep.)

  • Provent Review

    I have been using the Provent system for about 10 days. It is moderately difficult to get used to using since the outward breath is restricted. I was not able to get the starter kit due to lack of availability. I think the starter kit would have helped adjusting to the system. I have experienced dry mouth and lips from breathing through the mouth prior to falling asleep. Both of these side effects are noted in the literature. The good news, however, is that the system does substantially reduce snoring! My partner has not complained once about snoring on the nights I use Provent.

  • So far so good

    PROVENT seems to be working although it is hard to really determine its true effectiveness without the nighttime oxygen test. If it does promote the satisfactory oxygen levels then it would beat CPAP and dental appliances hands down in my book. My only suggestion would be that the side attachment tabs be a little longer.

  • Provent sleep apnea therapy

    I received my order and it is exactly what was ordered; however, I was a little surprised that it came in three separate boxes of ten (10) each. The order of 30 was correct, but I was expecting that it would be in one box of 30. I have purchased this product from a local supplier in the past; however, in this case they told me that the product was not available and they did not know when they would get it. That is what led me to your company, Direct Home on the internet. I will continue to order from you in the future when my present supply runs out.

  • Provent not too good

    I want to be honest here and tell you that my husband has so far stuck with this product but I couldn't. If I was just reviewing for myself, it would be one star, but I'm also a cpap user. My husband, who has very mild sleep apnea, (borderline) has since stuck with the product and although he still snores with it on, it's a little better than nothing at all. There is a big learning and comfort curve that most people won't be able to overcome. I give it two stars because the idea is good, but it's too hard to breath with.

  • Provent from Direct Home Medical - Fantastic

    Direct Home Medical made it very easy to obtain the Provent product. The Provent is a blessing for my wife - who was tired of the noise of the CPAP (and tired of me messing around with mask adjustments, etc. at 3:00 AM when it came loose from my face and starting whistling...!) The Provent strips work well to prevent my apneas (and snoring), and now I can actually sleep on overseas airplane flights. In the past, my snoring was so bad, that I didn't dare sleep because I was so self-conscious.

  • It works and keeps on working

    Well, I'm beyond the 10 day trial supply and still tolerating my "CPAP Replacement" which is what I call the Provent nasal coverings, very well. A little tip for others--if you, like me, have smaller nostrils than the Provent patches are made to accommodate, you might try shaving a thin strip from all around the adhesive edge (except for the little knob-like thing that you use to hold it when you apply it and take it off)to cut down on the amount of skin touched by the adhesive. Eliminates some potential for itching or irritation and can make them easier to apply.

    I recently started using this product in August and for the first time in years I wake up refreshed and energetic!

I also like using Direct Home Medical.. Switching to this company has save me 33% of what I would have paid to purchase it locally.

  • Used with Oracle mask instead of nose plugs

    I have to use the Oracle mask for several reasons and cannot use it without the nose plugs. The plugs irritated the interior of one nostril quite a bit. I was told by a Fischer Paykel rep. that some individuals found Provent to be a good replacement. It is better than the nose plugs, but I still have to use tape to stop leaks at a pressure of 14. (going from one side of my nose to the other) The leak is like a periodic burping sound.

    I rated this a three because I am not yet seeing any benefits in terms of feeling more rested after a trial pack plus another 10. However, it is certainly better than the torque of the CPAP machine!

    THis product has changed my life. I spent 6 years not knowing why I was so tired and then I found Provent. Yes it took adjusting to at first. It felt claustrophobic and took me about 5 days to get used to it. But now, instead of waking up every two hours all night, I sleep atleast 6 hours in a row and feel rested nearly every day! Thank you Provent!

  • Provent Therapy

    This is a good alternative to CPAP, much less cumbersome, easy to use, no clean up required. Easy to travel with. My husband says it works. It lessened my snoring considerably. Over all, this is a very good product and would highly recommend it. One of the issues I have is the size-it's a little too big for me, but if you adjust the angle a little bit and just before you press on the adhesive in the center,pull it to the outer side just enough that it doesn't block the other nostril, it will work just fine. The other issue I have is that my insurance doesn't carry it at the moment and I had to pay out of pocket, which is quite a lot. Even though CPAP and accessories are covered (depending on the coverage), Kaiser does not carry or recommend this product yet. Lastly, DirectHomeMedical Customer Care named Adam is a great resource. I had a ton of questions and he responded promptly, honestly and professionally. He's a great asset to this company.

  • Very comfortable

    Provent is easy to use and comfortable. It allows me to sleep straight through the night for eight hours, which the CPAP masks (even the nasal pillows) never do. I'm still trying to determine how much it's helping with falling asleep in the afternoon, though.

    I've had these Provent SR Sleep Apnea Therapy for almost two wks now but am having trouble breathing correctly. I still haven't mastered the breathing out thru the mouth. Hopefully it'll improve. I do notice that I am NOT accumulating a bunch of mucus like I was before I tried them and my nose and throat are NOT as dry but are still somewhat dry. My husband says I am not snoring like I was but we sleep in separate bedrooms so he can't monitor me a lot. They are VERY expensive and not yet covered by insurance, which is a huge disadvantage for me.

  • No More Mask!

    PROS: I LOVE provent! For years i have had to sleep using the cpap machine. i went through several different types of masks, all which were uncomfortable and cumbersome. I am so happy to have found Provent! It is like two little bandaids on your nose that you don't feel at all. I at first had trouble making them stick firmly but found a secret trick that works every time... I use a blotting sheet that gets rid of all oils around the nose area and now i never have trouble making them stick securely. Im sure any kind will work, i use clean & clear oil absorbing sheets. CONS: Even with very good insurance and a letter from my doctor, i can't get insurance to pay for provent therapy and it is expensive!

  • Provent's new version

    I used to be a very strong proponent of the Provent product, in fact it was a miracle solution to my apnea! Until they changed the design and materials. The "new and improved" version does not work!!! The valve is noisy, does not work on some units and the adhesive used to stick to the skin is far, far less effective than the previous version. I wake up nightly with leaks and clearly apnea has returned.... I'd pay double, if that what it would take, for the company to revert to the old type. Otherwise it makes no since for me to continue to use the product.
