Inspire Therapy is another way that our patients can be treated to help deal with their severe snoring and sleep apnea. It is controlled by a small remote control consisting of three parts: a small generator, a breathing sensor lead, and a stimulation lead, which all work together to monitor your sleeping and deliver a mild stimulation to crucial airway muscles and help keep them open while you sleep. You would simply turn the therapy on at night before going to sleep, and then turn it off in the morning when you awake.
The Inspire system is typically implanted during an outpatient procedure, and is placed under the skin of the neck and chest through three small incisions. The uninterrupted sleep and restful feeling can restore a patient’s restfulness and overall quality of life.
