Providing an

Alternative to CPAP

Inspire is a sleep apnea treatment option for patients who have difficulties adjusting to CPAP devices. The Inspire device is implanted during an outpatient procedure and works with a handheld sleep remote. The implanted device consists of three small portions that are all connected.

What makes inspire
sleep different?

  • The upper portion of the device is implanted on the hypoglossal nerve just under the tongue to stimulate the nerves that lift the tongue. This helps to unblock the airway without waking you. 
  • The second portion of the device is a breathing sensor that is implanted in the intercostal muscles. This portion monitors your breathing while you sleep and communicates changes to the other components.
  •  An upper airway stimulator functions as the communication hub between the breathing sensor and the upper stimulator. If the breathing sensor alerts changes, the stimulator sends a signal to the upper portion to stimulate your hypoglossal nerve to reopen your airway.
  • The remote control allows you to turn the device on and off. Turn it on when you go to bed and then turn it off when you wake in the morning.


Inspire Sleep Therapy

Inspire is an alternative to CPAP that works inside your body while you sleep. It’s a small device placed during a same-day, outpatient procedure.

When you’re ready for bed, simply click the remote to turn Inspire on. While you sleep, Inspire opens your airway, allowing you to breathe normally and sleep peacefully
