Manufacturer: Provent Product: Sleep Apnea Therapy Pack 30 Days
Provent Therapy, for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, works by increasing the pressure in the airway, which helps prevent the collapse of the airway while you sleep. This pressure is telling you that the device is working. The feeling of pressure in the airway can be uncomfortable at first. Relax! This is normal, and it may take time to get used to.
1. What is Provent Therapy?
Provent Sleep Apnoea Therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea (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 upon breathing out. Because it's a small, single use, disposable device, it's also discreet and very convenient.
2. How does Provent Therapy work?
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). This maintains pressure in the airway until the start of the next inspiration and helps to keep it open.

HOW TO APPLY PROVENT THERAPY
We recommend using a mirror and following these simple steps when applying the device:
Peel off the adhesive from the paper backing.
Align the long axis of nasal insert with the long axis of one of the nostrils to ensure a good seal. Make sure the side tab points outward.
Once aligned, place the nasal insert into the nostril. Stretch the lower nostril area as if shaving the area above the upper lip. This will help ensure a good seal.
Gently press down around the adhesive to ensure a good seal. Make sure there are no folds or creases compromising the seal.
Once in place, the adhesive tab should be adhered as shown. Repeat steps 1-4 for the other nostril.
Use a mirror to check that both devices are properly fitted. Some overlap of the adhesive portions of the two devices is common, but try to avoid having the adhesive cover the plastic mesh of the other device.
Run your fingers around the edges of the devices to ensure a good seal. Check that there are no air leaks in the area between the upper lip and the lower, outer nostril.
Provent Therapy is a new treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea. Studies have shown that treating OSA can reduce health risks (like depression and heart disease) associated with the disease. Provent Therapy has been proven to:
