About Provent® Sleep Apnea Therapy
Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is a clinically proven treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and related snoring—that does not require a machine, mask or medications.
Provent Therapy uses a proprietary MicroValve design that creates pressure when you exhale to keep your airway open. The device attaches over your nostrils with a hypoallergenic adhesive. Provent Therapy is small and disposable, making it discreet and very convenient.
If you are currently not treating your OSA and are looking for an alternative to CPAP, Provent Therapy could be your ideal obstructive sleep apnea solution.

How Provent Works
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.
A Convenient and Effective Alternative to PAP
Of course, like anything new, it requires patience. You might not see results right away, and it can take a few nights before it becomes a comfortable part of your sleep routine.
