Oventus Sleep Apnoea Device

What is the Oventus Sleep Apnoea Device?

The Oventus Sleep Apnoea Device is a customizable medical-grade titanium device that is lighter and easier to wear than other devices designed to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. It is the first FDA-cleared sleep disorder device that was shown to reduce or eliminate snoring in 100% of patients based on a 2016 clinical study. The unique design of the device makes it easy for patients with nasal congestion who have difficulty with a CPAP or other oral appliances.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and Snoring?

Obstructive sleep apnoea is a condition where there is involuntary stoppage of breathing for short periods during sleep. These periods are also called apnoeic episodes.

Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep caused by a constricted airway. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea are often seen together.

Symptoms and Consequences of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Symptoms and consequences of obstructive sleep apnoea include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Awakening with sore throat or dry mouth
  • Decreased libido
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Mood changes like irritability or depression
  • Night-time sweating
  • High blood pressure

How Does the Oventus Sleep Apnoea Device Work?

The device provides relief for obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring by creating a separate airway that avoids obstruction due to the tongue, soft palate, and areas within the nasal passage. The device guides the flow of air to the back of the throat, bypassing the soft palate and nasal passage. It stabilizes the position of the jaw and reduces airway collapse by bringing the tongue forward and keeping the airway open.
