Inspire for Sleep Apnea

Inspire, Allen, TXSleep is important to us. It helps us heal and repair our cells overnight, and encourages our brains to recharge for another day. But, if you aren’t sleeping well, you may be suffering needlessly. Sure, there are factors that you can control, like putting the cat away in her room before she wakes you up in the middle of the night, or making sure to go to the bathroom before you fall asleep. But, there may be other factors at play affecting your sleep. If you’ve been suspecting that there’s something else affecting your sleep, make it a resolution to check it out this year. It’s not worth losing any more sleep over.

What is it?

Inspire is an implant that helps keep your airway open while you sleep. It utilizes a small generator, a sensing lead, and a stimulation lead to create mild stimulation to the important muscles involved in keeping your airway open. You can control when it operates through a handheld remote. The remote allows patients to turn the device on and off, control the stimulation strength, and pause the device when needed.
