Inspire Therapy for Sleep Apnea
Are you exhausted by conservative treatments that have failed to relieve your obstructive sleep apnea? If so, you may be a candidate for a revolutionary sleep disorder treatment now available at Gundersen: Inspire® Therapy.
What is Inspire Therapy?
Inspire is an implantable treatment for people with obstructive sleep apnea who have not responded to other treatments like Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) therapy.
How does Inspire work?
Inspire provides relief by monitoring your breathing. When needed, the device stimulates the nerve that controls the movement of your tongue and other muscles that can obstruct your airway. By doing so, Inspire keeps your airway open for easier breathing and more restful sleep. A small handheld remote allows you to turn Inspire on before bed and off when you wake up, increase and decrease stimulation strength, and pause the device at night if needed.

Is Inspire the right sleep apnea treatment for me?
CPAP therapy is the first line of treatment for sleep apnea. However, it doesn't work for all people. If you have not found relief with CPAP or are unable to use a CPAP device, Inspire may be your answer for more restful nights.
