Everything You Need to Know About Inspire Sleep Therapy

by | Nov 28, 2022 | Sleep Studies

If you have a sleep disorder, you may struggle with drowsiness, fatigue, and irritability during the day. Inspire Sleep Therapy treats patients who struggle with sleep apnea so that they can feel refreshed and awake during the day.

How do you know if Inspire Therapy is for you?

Inspire Sleep Therapy is not for everyone. If you have mild to severe sleep apnea, you may qualify for Inspire Therapy. You must be over the age of 18 and not significantly obese to receive Inspire Therapy. If you have found yourself using a CPAP machine and not reaping the benefits, Inspire Therapy might be a great option for you.

How Does Inspire Therapy Work?

Inspire Therapy is placed in a patient’s body to open their airways when sleeping. It is a small device that is placed during a simple outpatient surgery. The device uses gentle pulses to open the airway during the night. The simulator that helps with the patient’s breathing is controlled by a handheld remote. When ready for bed, they turn the device on and it gently opens their airways. It allows for a more peaceful, refreshing sleep cycle.

Is Inspire Sleep Therapy Safe?

Inspire sleep therapy is the only FDA-approved obstructive sleep therapy treatment that treats the root cause of sleep apnea. The surgery includes three small incisions, and the patient can go home on the day of the operation. Serious implant-related complications only occur in less than 1 percent of patients. Patients may experience some bruising and tingling on their tongue, but it usually resolves itself within a couple of weeks. Overall, Inspire Sleep Therapy is a safe treatment method for sleep apnea.

Get Back to Being You

Many sleep apnea patients struggle to live their lives to their fullest potential. They lack productive sleep and don’t feel like themselves during the day. If you find yourself struggling to live a normal life because of sleep apnea, Inspire Sleep Therapy may be just what you need. No mask, no hose, just sleep!
