Some tips for successful use of Theravent:
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does Theravent work?
Patented MicroValve Technology uses the power of your own breathing to create Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP). This gentle pressure naturally opens your nasal airway to target and treat snoring. The valves are set in an adhesive that you place over your nostrils right before sleep. You will breathe in normally and then feel a gentle resistance as you breathe out. This is the MicroValves beginning to work.
Is Theravent effective for snoring associated with OSA?
Theravent is not intended to treat sleep apnea. Please see your doctor if you think you may have sleep apnea. Theravent, Inc., the maker of Theravent, also offers Provent® Sleep Apnea Therapy, which is indicated to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
How is Theravent different from nasal strips like Breathe Right?
Nasal strips are placed on top of your nose and help dilate your nostrils, reducing congestion. Theravent uses the power of your own breathing to create pressure that opens and supports your nasal airways.
How long does Theravent take to get used to?
Give yourself at least a week to get used to the feeling of Theravent. Some people may get used to the therapy in one night; for others it may take up to a week. But you will soon find that you get used to the new routine.
