What is Inspire Therapy?

Inspire Therapy (Upper Airway Stimulation)  is a novel, FDA-approved treatment for people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who are unable to use or get consistent benefit from continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Inspire therapy is an implantable device that delivers mild stimulation to key throat muscles, keeping the airway open during sleep.

The device is controlled by a small handheld remote, allowing you to turn Inspire therapy on before bed and off when you wake up, increase and decrease stimulation strength, and pause during the night if needed.

It's implanted during a short surgical procedure, typically in an outpatient setting.

You may be a candidate if:
