How Inspire Therapy Works

Take comfort – Inspire therapy can help

Inspire therapy consists of a breathing sensor and a stimulation lead, powered by a small battery. Implanted during a short, outpatient procedure, Inspire therapy continuously monitors your breathing while you sleep. The system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, and gently moves the tongue and other soft tissues out of the airway so you can breathe during sleep. Using the small handheld sleep remote, simply turn Inspire therapy on at night before bed and off in the morning when you wake up.

 

Is Inspire Therapy Right For You?

You might be a candidate for Inspire therapy if:

  • you have moderate to severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (AHI of 20 to 65)
  • you are unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP
  • you are not significantly overweight
  • you are over the age of 22

An Inspire therapy-trained doctor will also 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.
