A Sleep Apnea Treatment Without the Mask!
Inspire® Upper Airway Stimulation (UAS) is the only FDA-approved implantable treatment for people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). If you live in Nashville, Franklin, Brentwood or surrounding areas and are struggling with sleep apnea Inspire Therapy may be an answer for you.
How Inspire Sleep Therapy Works
Inspire is a device implanted inside the body that works with a patient’s natural breathing process. Based on your unique breathing patterns, the system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, keeping the airway open during sleep.
Inspire is implanted during a short, outpatient procedure. Most patients return home the same day and can resume non-strenuous activities within a few days or as directed by their doctor.
The Inspire system consists of a breathing sensor lead and a stimulation lead, powered by a small battery. The therapy is controlled by a small handheld sleep remote which allows the patient to turn the device on before bed and off when they wake up, increase and decrease stimulation strength, and pause during the night if needed.
Is Inspire Therapy Right for You?
Inspire Therapy isn’t for everyone. If you struggle with any of the following, please contact us today to speak with an Inspire Therapy doctor. You may be a good candidate for Inspire Therapy if you have…
- You have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.
- You are unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP.
- You are not significantly obese.
- You are over the age of 18.
Our doctors will evaluate your overall health status and perform a physical examination of your airway to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable CPAP alternative for you.
