Inspire Sleep Therapy

Inspire Device | The ENT & Allergy Centers Of Texas | McKinney TX

More than 18 million Americans have sleep apnea. Depending on the severity, obstructive sleep apnea can be a life-threatening condition. Research shows that patients who poorly manage their sleep apnea are at a higher risk of having a heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, heart failure, or gaining weight. While a CPAP machine is often successful, studies show that about half of all patients that start using CPAP eventually stop using it.

What Is Inspire Sleep Therapy?

Inspire therapy is the first implantable device for treating obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. Those who have inconsistent results from a CPAP can now turn to Inspire for support. In contrast to CPAP, Inspire therapy works from inside the body and with a patient’s natural breathing process. Inspire works based on each patient’s individual breathing patterns and stimulates the hypoglossal nerve to control the proper muscles.

How Does Inspire Sleep Therapy Work?

Inspire therapy includes a small generator, a sensing lead, and a stimulation lead. Patients can control Inspire 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. Once turned on the device delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles. This, in turn, keeps the airway open during sleep.
