Inspire Sleep Apnea Innovation

Post by admin | September 17, 2020

Inspire therapy is a fully implanted system that keeps the OSA patient’s airway open during sleep. The system consists of three components: a small generator, a breathing sensor lead, and a stimulation lead—all controlled by the small handheld Inspire Sleep Remote. Patients simply turn the therapy on at night before bed, and off in the morning when they wake up. When activated, Inspire therapy continuously monitors breathing patterns during sleep and delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, which keeps the airway open. Inspire therapy is a unique approach to OSA that may be an option for those obstructive sleep apnea patients who are unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP and do not want to consider traditional anatomy altering surgery.
