Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder suffered by millions of Americans, and shockingly 3 of 4 sufferers go undiagnosed. OSA constitutes the blocking of the airflow to the respiratory system for periods of time causing the sufferer loss of sleep and overall health.

When treating OSA the bulk of physicians will recommend continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP to their patients. This is a very effective method of treatment, but not all users are happy about wearing a CPAP mask throughout the night. In fact around half of users give up on CPAP therapy within a month.

A new alternative is Provent sleep therapy. Provent, manufactured by Ventus Medical, uses a "MicroValve" design which creates back pressure during exhalation to keep the airway from closing.

Provent was put to the test by Journal Sleep when they trialed its use with 250 sleep apnea sufferers. The study concluded that Provent therapy reduced the effects OSA noticeably during a three month time period.
