If you are struggling with sleep apnea and dreading the cumbersome CPAP mask every night you can find relief with Inspire® Therapy, a revolutionary and mask-free approach to treating sleep apnea. We understand that traditional treatments can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, leading many patients to abandon their therapy altogether. With Inspire® Therapy, you can finally break free from the limitations of a mask and enjoy restful, uninterrupted sleep.
What is Inspire® Therapy?
Inspire® Therapy is a small, implantable device that works seamlessly with your natural breathing process. Unlike CPAP machines, which rely on continuous airflow, Inspire® Therapy stimulates your airway muscles to keep them open while you sleep. This means no more uncomfortable masks, noisy machines, or air leaks that disrupt your slumber.
How It Works
Inspire® Therapy treats obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition where the airway becomes partially or completely blocked during sleep. This blockage causes interrupted breathing, leading to poor sleep quality and various health issues.
The Inspire® device is implanted during a simple outpatient procedure. Once in place, it continuously monitors your breathing patterns during sleep. When it detects an impending blockage, it delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, which controls the tongue and other key airway muscles. This stimulation gently moves the tongue and other tissues away from the airway, allowing for unobstructed breathing.
The best part?
Inspire® Therapy adapts to your unique breathing patterns, ensuring that it only activates when necessary. This means you can enjoy a full night’s sleep without even realizing the device is there.
It’s essential to consider your individual needs and preferences when exploring treatment options. Inspire® Therapy is an excellent choice for individuals who:
Have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.
Have not experienced improvement with CPAP or other therapies.
Struggle with mask discomfort, claustrophobia, or skin irritation.
Are looking for a long-term, effective solution to sleep apnea.
Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is here to help you determine if Inspire® Therapy is the right choice for you.
