Sleep Apnea Therapy 30 Day Starter Kit
Provent is an FDA approved treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea which is clinically proven to be effective in reducing daytime sleepiness and nighttime snoring. Simple to use and extremely compact, Provent works with the user’s own breathing to treat OSA.
Is Provent Right For You?
Newly diagnosed with OSA but not started treatment because the machine and mask were uncomfortable? Provent provides treatment for OSA using only a very small nasal device.
Frustrated by traveling with a CPAP set up?
Frequent travelers find that Provent is discrete and greatly lightens their load.
Given up on CPAP therapy?
Provent treats Sleep Apnea without the use of a CPAP machine and mask.
Never found a nasal mask that worked or still suffering morning with red marks and pressure points? Provent touches only the area around nasal openings and has no straps or buckles.
Provent requires a prescription. Discuss Provent with a physician to decide if its an option that may work in treating your OSA. Provent provides this guide for Healthcare Providers: Provent Healthcare Provider Guide.
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
- Phase 1: Nights one and two - lowest resistance (Yellow background with Pink text)
- Phase 2: Nights three and four - middle level of resistance (Orange background with Yellow text)
- Phase 3: Night five and forward - therapeutic level of resistance (Light Blue background with Orange text)
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. Provent is powered by 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”.
