Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is one of the most common types of sleep apneas. First, a sleep specialist must diagnose patients with OSA, then the patient is usually treated with a first form of treatment (generally CPAP therapy). CPAP can be a great solution for many patients, but what if you don’t respond to it or cannot tolerate CPAP therapy? Then you can look at options like the Inspire Implant.

Join us as we explore OSA and various treatment options, including the revolutionary Inspire Implant. Over 20 million Americans struggle with moderate to severe OSA. When left untreated, this form of sleep apnea can lead to fatigue, reduced productivity, snoring and disturbing your sleepmate, a higher risk of accidents, and may have a negative effect on your heart and brain health.
CPAP therapy remains the frontline treatment for OSA, offering fantastic results for many patients. However, for those who aren’t a good match for CPAP, other options are available. Oral appliances, surgery, and the Inspire Implant can help when CPAP therapy does not yield optimal results or is not tolerated.
The Inspire Implant involves a quick and safe outpatient procedure that can help you get the amount of high-quality sleep you need to be fully rested. This implanted device requires just three small incisions in the chest, boasts a fast recovery, and comes with an 11-year battery life. After implantation, using the Inspire Implant is easy—just click a button and go to sleep. The Inspire Implant will do the rest, ensuring there is no airway blockage.
Good candidates for the Inspire Implant must have tried CPAP therapy without enjoying consistent results. If you have moderate to severe OSA, are at least 22 years old, pass an airway anatomy exam performed by your sleep specialist, and are not severely overweight, the Inspire Implant might be for you. Most insurance plans cover some, if not all, of the Inspire Implant purchase and implantation.
