If you suffer from sleep apnea and are looking for alternative treatment option to CPAP, you might be candidate for Inspire Therapy. And our sleep medicine doctors are preferred providers of Inspire in Colorado Springs, CO.
Inspire works inside the body with a patient’s natural breathing process to treat sleep apnea. Inspire delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, allowing the airway to open during sleep. The patient uses a small handheld remote to turn Inspire on before bed and off when they wake up. No mask, no hose, just sleep.
How Inspire Therapy Works:
The Inspire device is made up of a small battery and two small wires. Inspire is placed under the skin of the neck and chest through two small incisions during an outpatient procedure. Most patients return home the same day and return to non-strenuous activities within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medicine is typically used for a few days after the procedure for pain management.
