Using a CPAP machine is a lifestyle change and even though there are many options for the mask it’s not for everyone. If you don’t like your CPAP machine, even though it helps with your sleep apnea, you will not qualify for the Inspire Implant. The implant is only for patients who do not respond to CPAP therapy. It has been reported that 96 percent of people say Inspire is better than the CPAP machine.
