DirectHomeMedical Offering New Approach to Initiating Sleep Apnea Therapy
New 30-Day Provent Therapy Starter Kit allows users to gradually adjust to Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) Therapy
Hudson, NH (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
DirectHomeMedical is excited to launch the all new Provent Starter Kit from Ventus Medical. The Provent Starter Kit is specifically designed to help people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) adjust to Provent Therapy by introducing a gradual exposure to expiratory positive airway pressure.
Provent Therapy is an alternative, FDA Approved treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and related snoring — that DOES NOT require a machine, mask or medications. Provent is clinically proven to be effective for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe OSA and related snoring, and can restore the energy that comes with a good night’s sleep.
The Provent device is placed just inside the nostrils and is held in place by a hypoallergenic adhesive. The expiratory resistance created by the Provent device helps maintain an open airway during sleep and prevents a collapse of the airway. The Starter Kit has a convenient 3-phased approach gradually increasing expiratory resistance and aiding the adjustment to Provent Therapy. The full therapeutic effect is reached on night 5. Market research has demonstrated that patients had an easier time falling asleep and slept better with the Provent Starter Kit.
Provent Therapy has now been proven in more than 10 clinical trials and used in over two million nights of sleep. This unique technology, elegant design and proven efficacy makes it ideal for all OSA patient types.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea and is caused by obstruction of the upper airway. It is characterized by repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep, despite the effort to breathe, and is usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include daytime sleepiness, fatigue, and nighttime snoring. Sleep apnea is most prevalent in adults but may also occur in children. The most common treatment for sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy in which air pressure, delivered to the nose or mouth via a mask, is used to keep the obstructed airway open during sleep.
