New Treatment For Obstructive Sleep Apnea Now Available In Canada
Date:11/19/2012

nt has been used effectively in the United States since 2008 and in clinical studies, Provent Therapy improved quality of sleep while it reduced apnea (breathing disruptions), daytime sleepiness and snoring. Importantly, Provent is easy to use, portable and discreet for use at home or when travelling."

CPAP is the primary treatment of OSA and is extremely effective if worn as directed. However, up to half of all patients are not compliant with CPAP therapy due to the cumbersome nature of the treatment. Provent Therapy was developed to help patients who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy and will benefit from the small, non-invasive and effective technology, which Provent Therapy provides.

In patients with OSA the airway collapses during sleep when the muscles that hold it open relax. People with this disorder stop breathing during sleep---in some cases hundreds of times each night---usually for periods of ten seconds or longer. OSA can lead to fatigue, early morning headaches, irritability, lack of concentration, and contributes to depression, learning and memory difficulties, and sexual dysfunction. Importantly, recent studies have shown that OSA is associated with high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

"As we look at global market opportunities for Provent Therapy, Canada fits directly into our corporate strategy, which is to target markets where three factors come together: high prevalence of OSA, acceptance of innovative therapies, and importantly, a need for new therapeutic options that address low patient compliance," stated Peter Wyles, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ventus Medical. "With ioSleep and their extensive experience in sleep disorder treatment and diagnosis, we are pleased to present Provent Therapy as a new treatment to manage this troubling condition."
