Randomized Study of Provent Versus Sham Device to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Primary Endpoints:

•Comparison of difference in AHI at one-week in-lab polysomnography between "device on" and "device off" nights, controlling for sleep position (supine vs. non-supine)

Secondary Endpoints: By polysomnography, reduction in:

- AHI with device on vs. off at 3 months, controlling for sleep position

- Oxygen desaturation index with device on vs. off

- Arousal index with device on vs. off

- Duration of snoring with device on vs. off

- Epworth Sleepiness Scale

Patient acceptance, in terms of:

- Refusal rate at screening

- Discontinuation rate during follow-up

- Daily compliance rate

- Device-related adverse events

- Serious adverse events

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
