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

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00772044
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 15, 2008
Last Update Posted : April 1, 2010

Ventus Medical, Inc.

Brief Summary:

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
