Westmoreland Sleep Medicine
The Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) machine is the most commonly prescribed treatment
and usually the only option given to those diagnosed with sleep apnea. Approximately 750,000 CPAP’s
are prescribed each year. Some patients find the CPAP mask uncomfortable and only wear it an
average of 4.5 hours per night, five days a week, which has been shown to be an insufficient amount
of time to alleviate their sleep apnea symptoms. Dr. Jain would like to work with you to get you back on track with your equipment. Should you decide against this option, Dr. Jain would be happy to discuss the alternative treatment options with you. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends Provent Therapy as a first line of treatment for mild sleep apnea and in cases of severe apnea when CPAP has not worked.
Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The Provent Nasal Device uses a novel valve design, which attaches over the nostrils and is secured in place with hypoallergenic adhesive.
Because it is a single use, disposable device, it is also very convenient. During inhalation the valve opens, allowing nearly unobstructed airflow. During exhalation the valve closes, directing airflow through two small air channels, which increases airway pressure during exhalation until the start
of the next inhalation.
