Inspire Therapy for Sleep Apnea

Hackensack Sleep and Pulmonary Center in NJ is proud to offer Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation therapy, a new treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea.  Unlike CPAP, Inspire works from inside the body with the patient’s natural breathing process.

Inspire Therapy Can Help

Inspire therapy is FDA approved and clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve quality of life for the patient and their families.

An Inspire therapy-trained doctor will evaluate your overall health and perform a physical examination of your airway to determine if Inspire therapy might be a suitable CPAP alternative for you.

How Inspire Works

The Inspire system works completely inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat obstructive sleep apnea. While you are asleep, Inspire delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, a nerve that controls the movement of the tongue and other muscles in the airway. By stimulating the nerve, the tongue and other tissues move out of the airway so you can breathe during sleep.

Inspire therapy is controlled using the Inspire Sleep Remote. The Inspire Sleep Remote allows you to turn the therapy on and off, adjust stimulation strength, and pause stimulation during the night if needed.
