Inspire is an FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment that provides long-term relief by targeting the root cause of the problem. Inspire therapy utilizes a device that keeps your airways open while you sleep. The device is placed under the skin of the neck and chest during a two-hour outpatient procedure. After that, you can go home and look forward to a night of uninterrupted sleep.

Would you like to know if you’re the right candidate for Inspire therapy? Contact Palm Beach Sleep and Sinus to schedule an evaluation with our ENT and sleep surgeon in Jupiter, FL.

The Patient Experience

You may be a suitable candidate for Inspire if:

  • You have been diagnosed with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea
  • You’re above the age of 22
  • You’re not obese
  • CPAP hasn’t worked for you

Since every patient is unique, our doctors obtain relevant information to personalize your treatment. We rely on various techniques, including visual observation, assessment of your medical history, and sleep studies, to gather health insights.

If you’re determined to be a candidate, the next step involves the placement of the Inspire device, a procedure that is performed under general anesthesia. The stimulation wire and the stimulator are placed at strategic points under your neck, chest, and ribcage areas. This placement ensures optimal stimulation of the tongue and airway muscles, thus eliminating airway obstruction as you sleep.

Typically, patients only require over-the-counter medication to manage pain and return to non-strenuous activities after a few days. After a couple of weeks, you can comfortably resume strenuous activities.

How Inspire Works

Inspire works by sending mild stimulation to the crucial motor nerve that controls your tongue, thus moving it out of the way to prevent obstruction. Inspire is controlled via a small hand-held remote. When you’re ready to sleep, turn on Inspire using the remote to activate a restful night of sleep.
