Ogden Clinic is pleased to offer a breakthrough option for patients with obstructive sleep apnea: Inspire sleep apnea treatment. Obstructive sleep apnea affects nearly 18 million Americans and the most popular treatment option today is continuous positive airway pressure, or a CPAP machine.
Inspire sleep apnea treatment does away with the hose, mask, and machine. It’s a simple outpatient procedure that is implanted by a doctor to provide upper airway stimulation.
Inspire is an innovative obstructive sleep apnea treatment option for people unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP. The fully implanted system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles which keeps the airway open during sleep. Inspire therapy is controlled with a small, handheld remote that requires no mask and no holes!
Simply turn the therapy on before you go to bed and off when you wake up with the push of a button. Inspire therapy helps you take control of your sleep apnea and can give you the restful night’s sleep you’ve been missing.
