Provent™ Sleep Apnea Therapy 30 Day Starter Kit
Do you know someone who has untreated Sleep Apnea because they cannot adapt to CPAP therapy? Or have you ever wanted an easier way to travel and still be able to treat your sleep apnea? Provent is an option for those who have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) which does not use a CPAP machine and mask. Place the Provent MicroValve over each nostril to create airway pressure during exhalation and prevent the airway collapse found with OSA. In the morning, remove the Provent devices and dispose of them.
The Provent Starter Kit offers a unique "step up" process as an introduction to Provent therapy allowing time to become accustomed to therapy and give the best chance of success.

30 Day Starter Kit
Adjusting to any medical therapy takes time. The gradual step up program found in the 30 Day Starter Kit is the result of Ventus Medical conducting clinical studies with Provent. The Starter Kit slowly introduces the new user to breathing with Provent by increasing the resistance level and allowing time to become accustomed to the change in exhalation.
The Starter Kit includes three phases:
The Quick Reference Card, Application Instructions and detailed Welcome brochure provide all the information needed to use Provent.

How Provent Works
Provent is designed with a unique, patented MicroValve that is placed just inside each nostril. It is secured using hypoallergenic adhesive developed with Johnson & Johnson and is similar to a band aid. During exhalation the air is channeled through small openings creating pressure which keeps the airway open, much like the pressure delivered by a CPAP machine. During inhalation the valve opens to allow airflow into the body. Unlike CPAP treatment which increases airflow during both inhalation and exhalation, Provent increases pressure only during exhalation.
Traveling with a CPAP means carrying on the machine, mask, hose and extension cord and hoping that nothing is lost or broken during the security check and travel.
The small and simple design makes Provent ideal for travel. It can easily fit into a purse, pocket, shaving kit or carry on bag. Because Provent does not use electricity it eliminates the hotel room hunt for an outlet to plug in a machine. Some users elect to use Provent for travel and CPAP when at home.
A prescription is required to make a purchase of Provent. The prescription should be written specifically for "Provent" or "Provent Therapy". The prescription can be sent in via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax to 1-866-353-2727, or uploaded through our website: Prescription Upload. A prescription for a CPAP or BiPAP cannot be used to purchase Provent. Speak with your physician about Provent Therapy. You can download a standard Provent prescription form and physician information sheet here: Provent Prescription Form.
Beginning Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy
A good first step is to watch the Provent Instructional video. It can be found on the Video & FAQ tab of this product page. The adjustment period for using Provent Sleep Apnea treatment may vary from one person to another. Some people easily begin treatment while others experience a longer period of adjustment. It is suggested to apply Provent just before laying down to go to sleep. The new user will become accustomed to feeling resistance while breathing out through the nose. The three phases of the 30 Day Starter Kit provide an adequate adjustment period to get used to sleeping with the devices. See the Important Tips tab on this product page for more helpful information.
