Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is a simple and effective treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Provent is FDA Cleared and only available with a prescription.
Designed for new users, the Provent 30-Night Starter Kit includes a Welcome Guide and 3 phases of Provent Therapy that step up in resistance -- from light to medium to standard -- so you can adapt to breathing with Provent gradually over the first few nights.
Provent Therapy is a disposable, nightly-use nasal device placed just inside the nostrils and held securely in place with hypoallergenic adhesive. Provent's proprietary MicroValve design 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 -- Provent Therapy could be a great solution for you!
HOW PROVENT THERAPY WORKSProvent Therapy works much like traditional 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 linked on this page 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.

This product is quite convenient compared to a CPAP mask and machine. It is taking some time to get used to positioning the patches properly but I think it is going to work well in the long run. By Pam, Maine
PROVENT SLEEP APNEA THERAPY
I am still in the beginning stages of this product but I think it is working. I feel better during the day and I'm not getting up a million times during the night. We shall see as time goes on! By BEVERLY, kENT, oh
The Provent Therapy is fantastic!
I was not expecting much from the Provent Patches. I just could not imagine how they could work like a CPAP machine, but amazingly they do. I am now telling all my friends and family who have a CPAP to try the Provent System. By Joe F, Payson, AZ
Alternative to CPAP
My problem is sleeping with treatments for sleep apnea -- CPAP machine and mask, dental appliance and now Provent. Of the three, Provent is the least uncomfortable for me. It did not take me long to become accustomed to the product. The good news for me was that the overnight oximetry done using Provent showed that it was more effective than the dental appliance that I have worn for several years. The down side is of course the price. Other issues are leaks; however a wee bit of tape remedies that. Every night use created skin irritation on my nose. To remove, wet your hand and work the patches off using water to make removal easier. And the other issue is waking up at night and remembering to exhale through my mouth. That said, this product works for me as the preferable choice for treatment of sleep apnea. By Gretchen, Florida
This product seems to work for me. I wish it came in sizes. My nose is small. By Jan, Memphis, TN
I really like the idea of Provent, I sure wish my insurance covered it. Luckily it's cheaper with cpapxchange than any other merchant I've check with. I'm just not sure that it's working for me. My mouth is dry in the morning, which means my mouth is open when it needs to be shut. I've tried a chin strap, but the 2 straps I've used did not keep my mouth closed. Hoping to do an at home sleep study soon to see if Provent is working for me. If not, I may have to go back to trying new masks. By Striving4Rest, Kansas City, MO
Great for primitive camping. Slept great. By Gretchen , Oklahoma City
The Provent product is such a welcome change from the Cpap as it's easier to travel to professional meeting without the :"machine" and appear without the marks on my face and in my hair!! By Peacefully Sleeping, Central MN
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! By rubberchicken10, Louisiana
