What is Inspire Therapy?

Inspire therapy is a surgically implanted device that works within your body to treat sleep apnea. Once activated, Inspire continuously monitors your breathing patterns as you sleep. The system automatically delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, which keeps the airway open based on your unique sleeping and breathing patterns.

The Inspire system consists of three implanted components including a small generator, breathing sensor lead, and stimulation lead, all controlled with the small handheld Inspire sleep remote.

Thoughtful patient selection, selective stimulation of targeted airway muscles, and optimal stimulation timing all play an important role in maintaining airway patency and improving patient outcomes.

Benefits of Inspire Therapy

The Inspire stimulation lead is designed to gently conform to a variety of hypoglossal (XII) nerve types. Securing the stimulation lead to the optimal location on the XII nerve facilitates stable, consistent stimulation of targeted airway muscles.

It was recently announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation (UAS) therapy for use in a subset of patients with moderate to severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) who are unable to use Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).

Inspire Therapy continues to be the treatment of choice for many patients. Here’s a few reasons why:

  • Less invasive than conventional OSA surgeries and preserves the natural airway anatomy.
  • Designed to maintain airway patency at multiple levels of the airway
  • Clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve quality of life

How Does Inspire Therapy Work?

Inspire therapy works inside your body, and with your natural breathing process, to treat sleep apnea. It continuously monitors your breathing patterns while you sleep. Based on your unique breathing patterns, the system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, which keeps the airway open.

The Inspire system consists of three components: a small generator, a breathing sensor lead, and a stimulation lead—all controlled by the small handheld Inspire sleep remote. Simply turn the therapy on at night before bed, and off in the morning when you wake up.

For most patients, the Inspire system can be implanted during an outpatient procedure. Patients may experience some pain and swelling at incision sites but should be able to return to nonstrenuous activities after a few days. Approximately one month after implantation, patients return to their physician’s office where personalized stimulation settings are established and patients are trained to use the handheld Inspire sleep remote.

Are you a Candidate?

Inspire therapy might be right for you if:

  • You have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
  • You can’t use or don’t get relief from CPAP

Your Inspire therapy doctor will also evaluate your airway anatomy and overall health status to determine if Inspire therapy is right for you.
