Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy 30 Night Pack - CPAP Alternative
Provent Therapy is a simple and effective snoring solution for sleep apnoea. Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is a disposable nightly-use nasal device. Provent patches fit comfortably over the nose and are disposable, small and discreet. Ideal for use at home or while traveling (many customers who wear CPAP masks at home use Provent when they travel). They offer a great alternative for people who can’t fit a bulky CPAP machine in their bedroom, or those whose snoring or sleep apnoea doesn’t require such an intense treatment.
Provent is ideal for anyone who has tried other treatments (e.g. CPAP, medication or dental split) unsuccessfully and is effective in treating both Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and snoring. However, if you are not suffering from OSA, but do struggle with snoring, then Theravent Snore Therapy may be the solution for you.
Provent uses a proprietary MicroValve design that creates pressure when you exhale to keep your airway open. Provent is small and disposable, making it discreet and very convenient. If you’re looking for an alternative to CPAP, please consult with your physician before using Provent Therapy for sleep apnea.

How to Use Provent
Provent patches are applied directly to the nostrils, each night before bed. It’s as simple as that. You require no specialist equipment or technique beyond a steady hand. Once applied they will last the night regardless of your sleeping style. They are designed to be sweat and heat resistant, staying firmly in place even during the warmest of summer evenings.
The application and instruction guides (PDFs) below will walk you through how to apply the Provent patches correctly and provide you tips to adjust to wearing it. Most people find Provent comfortable and easy to use, getting used to the feeling in just a few applications and not noticing it once they have acclimated. Coupled with the improved sleep, you will forget you have anything on your nose before you know it and will only notice the effects of better, uninterrupted sleep.
Please consult with your physician before using Provent for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
How Does Provent Work?
Provent is powered by your own breath, which creates Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) to maintain an open airway and enable natural breathing. As you breathe in, Provent's proprietary MicroValves open so inhalation feels normal and is nearly unobstructed. As you breathe out Provent's MicroValves close, restricting airflow and creating resistance, or EPAP.
Unlike CPAP treatment which increases airflow during both inhalation and exhalation, Provent increases pressure only during exhalation. Provent is powered by exhalation.
Clinical studies have shown that 83% of patients experienced a snoring reduction with Provent Therapy. Among OSA patients that snore, Provent Therapy virtually eliminated snoring in 58% of patients. These figures speak to the effectiveness of Provent, a system that is the result of many years of research, development and testing.

Frequently asked questions and advice
What is EPAP?
Provent Therapy utilizes a proprietary MicroValve technology developed by Theravent, Inc. 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), maintains pressure and helps to keep the airway open until the start of the next inhalation.
How does Provent Therapy treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?
Provent Therapy adhesive devices attach over the nostrils. During inhalation, the patented Microvalve 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 and helps to keep it open.
Why is it important to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
There is no cure for obstructive sleep apnea. Untreated OSA has a number of potential serious side effects. These include excessive daytime sleepiness, increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, depression, increased risk or worsening of heart failure, and increased likelihood of driving or work-related accidents.
Is Provent easy to use?
Provent Therapy is a simple, single-use device that fits over your nostrils. However, it may take some time to get used to wearing Provent. Patients generally acclimate in three to seven nights but it could take up to three weeks. Remember to exhale through your mouth while wearing the device (your body will automatically revert to nasal breathing once you fall asleep and Provent can begin to work.) If you're unable to fall asleep one night, simply remove and discard the Provent Therapy and try again the next night.
Can I use Provent if I am a mouth breather?
As with nasal CPAP therapy, Provent Therapy users who may be mouth breathing during sleep may benefit from the use of a chinstrap. Click here to read Provent Instructions for Use.
Will Provent Therapy work for me?
Provent Therapy does not work for everyone. In recent clinical studies, 81% of obstructive sleep apnea sufferers were successfully treated by Provent Therapy. Contact your physician to see if Provent is right for you.
Can I use Provent with my CPAP?
Provent Therapy cannot be used together with a CPAP machine, but some users find that it's more convenient to use Provent when traveling and CPAP when at home.
Can I travel with Provent?
Because of its small, simple design, traveling is easy with Provent Therapy. Each night's set is individually pouched. There is no need for electricity or equipment and the device is discarded after single-use.
What is Provent Therapy?
Provent Therapy is a safe, non-invasive, and clinically effective treatment for mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Provent is a disposable medical device that’s worn at night and attaches with a hypoallergenic adhesive over the nostrils. The microvalve technology uses your own breathing to create EPAP. The device directs expiratory flow through small holes, which increases airway pressure during the expiratory phase of the respiratory cycle in similar fashion to the expiratory phase of CPAP therapy. This airway pressure is maintained until the start of the next inspiration. The expiratory resistance created by the Provent Nasal Device helps maintain an open airway during sleep.
Provent comes in a starter kit and a standard pack which are all available through HomeMed’s webstore.
How does Provent Therapy work?
Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy works to treat obstructive sleep apnea by increasing pressure in the airway when you breathe out, helping to prevent collapse of the airway while you sleep. When you inhale through the nose airflow is nearly unobstructed, allowing for normal breathing. Upon breathing out the microvalve closes, directing air through small air channels, increasing resistance. Expiratory resistance creates EPAP and maintains pressure in the airway until next inspiration.
Does Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy stop snoring?
Clinical studies have shown that 83% of patients experienced a snoring reduction with Provent Therapy. Among OSA patients that snore, Provent Therapy virtually eliminated snoring in 58% of patients.
How do I use Provent?
After consulting with your physician about whether Provent is a suitable treatment for you, the next step is to master the correct placement of the Provent nasal strips. Follow these instructions to ensure a good fit:
- Familiarize yourself with the different components of the device. Just before going to bed, remove each nasal device from the white card by grasping the tab and pealing it off. Start with a clean dry nose.
- Using a mirror, align the mesh part of the device with your nostril to ensure correct placement. Point the tab on the adhesive up towards your eye.
- Apply and press down gently on the adhesive to create a seal. Stretch your upper lip downward as when shaving.
- Check for a proper fit. Make sure that each nostril is covered with the device. Run your finger around the adhesive of each device to ensure there is a good seal. There should be no air leaks.
- Put on the Provent nose plugs right before bed and breathe through your mouth while you fall asleep. Most people will switch to nasal breathing after they fall asleep and the device will begin to work
What can I expect from my initial experience with Provent Therapy?
After you apply the Provent Device, you should notice the resistance created as you try to exhale. Generally, users get used to this feeling after wearing for several nights. For tips on how to breathe and how you will feel, click here.
What is the difference between Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy and CPAP?
The main differences between CPAP and Provent Therapy are as follows:
- Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy restricts your ability to exhale, while CPAP increases pressure on both inspiration and expiration.
- Unlike CPAP which uses forced air to increase pressure in the airway, Provent Therapy uses the patient’s own breathing to create EPAP.
