Inspire Sleep Therapy for Sleep Apnea
   



CarolinaSleep is proud to offer Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation therapy, a new treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea. Unlike CPAP, Inspire works from inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process.

 

Inspire therapy is FDA approved and clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve quality of life for the patient and their families. An Inspire therapy-trained doctor will evaluate your overall health and perform a physical examination of your airway to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable CPAP alternative for you.


How Does Inspire Work?
The Inspire system works completely inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat obstructive sleep apnea. While you are asleep, Inspire delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, a nerve that controls the movement of the tongue and other muscles in the airway. By stimulating the nerve, the tongue and other tissues move out of the airway so you can breathe during sleep. Inspire therapy is controlled using the Inspire Sleep Remote. The Inspire Sleep Remote allows you to turn the therapy on and off, adjust stimulation strength, and pause stimulation during the night if needed.

Is Inspire Sleep Right for You?


You may be a candidate for Inspire therapy if you:
• Have Moderate to Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea
• Are Unable to Tolerate or Benefit from CPAP
• Are Not Significantly Overweight
• Are Over the Age of 22

The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our Inspire Therapy-trained physicians to evaluate your overall health status and perform an examination of your airway anatomy to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable alternative for you.

 

Inspire Therapy Can Help.

Inspire therapy works inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process. The system is placed under the skin during a short surgical procedure, typically in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia.

Patients can return to their regular diet and most activities of daily living immediately after the procedure.
