New Sleep Apnea Treatment

Patients in Central Ohio and beyond can now advantage from Inspire, a new sleep apnea treatment depending on upper airway stimulation. Manufactured by Inspire Medical, this small device is implanted under the skin close to the right collar bone and turned on at bedtime by the patient with a handheld remote. Inspire involves a tiny electric battery attached to a breathing sensor lead and a stimulation lead. The device stimulates the hypoglossal nerve, which in turn, activates key airway muscles during inhaling to keep your airway available during sleep.
