The Provent Device® — An Innovative Little Alternative to CPAP
Eos Sleep, formerly the Manhattan Snoring and Sleep Center announces a new, FDA-approved treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea that eliminates the need for the CPAP mask and some surgical procedures. Marking a significant advance in the treatment of sleep apnea, is an innovative new device that allows patients to use the power of their own breathing to restore natural airflow to treat their obstructive sleep apnea.
The Provent Device® from Ventus Medical Inc. is small and powered by one’s own breathing, so it requires no mask or machine. The device is clinically proven to treat obstructive sleep apnea and is effective for mild, moderate, and severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). It features “MicroValve” technology that creates Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) to keep the airway open during sleep.
It is simple to use and disposable, and available by prescription. Provent Therapy uses the body’s own breathing to create positive airway pressure. It is placed just inside the nostrils and is held in place by a discreet hypoallergenic adhesive. Upon inhalation, the valve opens and allows airflow that is unobstructed. Upon exhalation, the valve closes and air passing through the nose is directed through two small air channels, creating air pressure, which helps maintain an open airway during sleep.
The Provent Device has won two prestigious awards for innovation in design, including the International Design Excellence Award in 2010, The Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award, and the Medical Design Excellence Award, 2009.
This device is perfect for patients who have been unable to successfully be treated for their sleep apnea through the CPAP, and may also be an alternative to certain surgical options. It is so small it is perfect for travel, as well. Learn more about Provent Device at the Ventis Medical Website. It is by prescription only, therefore it is important to see your doctor to find out if this treatment is right for you. Contact the Eos Sleep today to schedule your appointment.
