Upper Airway Stimulation Therapy for Sleep Apnea


#1

Some people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA, are unable to use Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy, the most commonly prescribed OSA treatment, despite best efforts. Now there’s a new, clinically proven therapy for some people with moderate to severe OSA who are unable to use CPAP. Inspire therapy was introduced in 2014.

It’s great that we patients have options. Discuss them with your physician to find what works best for you.

Met with one of the reps this weekend in VA it sounds great he said that in some cases patient may still need some help but a better candidate for an oral appliance in that aspect…this is truly good stuff as it may get that patient down to an AHI of like 14 then the rest is mechanics.

I have Inspire, yes it works as well or better then advertised. It was never painful, a little uncomfortable right after surgery, but never painful. When in use about all you feel is your toungh move. Feel free to ask further questions.
