Ventus Medical Announces PROVENT(R) Sleep Apnea Therapy Recognized by The Wall Street Journal 2009 Technology Innovation Awards

use and disposable treatment that works across mild, moderate, and severe OSA. The treatment utilizes nasal expiratory positive airway pressure and has been clinically shown to reduce sleep apnea. It incorporates a novel MicroValve design that is placed over the nostrils and secured with hypoallergenic adhesive. During inhalation, the valve opens allowing nearly unobstructed airflow, and during exhalation, the valve closes, limiting airflow through two small openings, which increases expiratory pressure, helping to keep the airway open.

Currently, PROVENT Therapy is available in limited locations in the United States with the assistance and support of professional sleep physicians. PROVENT Therapy may not be appropriate for everyone. For more information, please visit www.ProventTherapy.com.

Sleep-Disordered Breathing

Sleep-disordered breathing broadly refers to a group of disorders characterized by abnormalities of breathing pattern (such as stopping breathing) or the abnormal reduction in the volume of breaths while sleeping. OSA is the most common type of sleep-disordered breathing.

OSA is caused by multiple factors, including sleep-induced relaxation of the throat muscles and tongue, enlarged tonsils and adenoids, an abnormally small airway diameter in the back of the mouth and throat, and extra soft tissue in and around the throat due to being overweight.
