How Inspire Sleep Apnea Treatment Works

How Does Inspire Therapy Work?

This FDA-approved implantable upper airway stimulation device functions like a pacemaker and stabilizes a patient's throat during sleep in order to prevent obstruction. The device consists of three components: a programmable neuro-stimulator located in a chest pocket, a pressure sensing lead that detects patient's breathing, and a stimulator lead that delivers mild stimulation to the tongue nerve. The stimulator is controlled via the patient’s handheld remote control. Patients turn on the device before going to bed to gently stimulate the throat muscles while sleeping.
