Inspire represents a significant advance in the treatment of sleep apnea. The Inspire system is implanted during a short outpatient procedure and works inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process to treat the disorder. Mild stimulation opens the airways during sleep, allowing oxygen to flow naturally. The patient uses a small, hand-held remote control to turn Inspire on before bed and turn it off when they wake up.
“We are proud to have successfully performed fifty Inspire procedures,” says Dr. McCusker. “This treatment significantly improves sleep and quality of life for patients eligible for OSA treatment.”
