Kettering Adventist HealthCare's Sleep Center at the Kettering Medical Center (Ohio) is offering a new treatment for people with obstructive sleep apnea who don’t tolerate or benefit from CPAP therapy.
Inspire is an FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment. It’s a device that’s implanted under the skin of the neck and chest during an outpatient procedure. The device is controlled by a small, handheld remote. While you sleep, Inspire delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, allowing the airway to remain open–without a mask, hose, or machine.
