Inspire therapy can help.
Inspire therapy is a breakthrough implantable treatment option for people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea who are unable to use or get consistent benefit from Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). While you’re sleeping, Inspire monitors every breath you take. Based on your unique breathing patterns, the system delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve which controls the movement of your tongue and other key airway muscles. By stimulating these muscles, the airway remains open during sleep.
The Inspire obstructive sleep apnea device is controlled by a small handheld sleep remote. The remote allows you to turn Inspire therapy on before bed and off when you wake up, increase and decrease stimulation strength, and pause during the night if needed.
To learn more about how Inspire therapy can be easily incorporated into your everyday life, watch the short video series entitled Inspired Lives. The series features four Inspire therapy patients: Chris, Dan, Ivy and Al, and a physician moderator, Dr. Ron Hanson.
The group discusses their struggles with CPAP and oral appliances, why they’ve made the decision to treat their sleep apnea with Inspire therapy, and how Inspire has changed their lives for the better. Click the video to learn more.
