Inspire® Therapy an Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment without using a CPAP device –simply better sleep for a healthier you!

ENT and Allergy Specialists now offers Inspire® Therapy – a groundbreaking Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) treatment device that addresses the source of the Sleep Apnea, not just the symptoms. Unlike traditional CPAP machines, Inspire® Therapy is implanted within the body to provide a more comfortable (no mask and no hose) and effective solution for individuals who suffer from this disorder and cannot tolerate or get consistent relief using a CPAP device.

How does Inspire® Therapy Work to Treat Sleep Apnea?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and have tried other treatments without success, you may be a candidate for this innovative treatment. Inspire® Therapy works by gently moving the tongue forward every time you breathe in which helps open the airway, decreasing obstructive events.

How does Inspire® Therapy Work to Treat Sleep Apnea?

With Inspire® Therapy, patients have shown significant improvements in their symptoms, including a 79% reduction in sleep apnea events and a 90% decrease in snoring reported by bed partners. In fact, 94% of Inspire® Therapy patients say it is better than CPAP and would recommend it to others. For additional statistics and research please visit the Inspire® website.

Is Inspire® Therapy the right treatment for me?

Inspire® Therapy candidates must meet the following criteria to be eligible:

  • suffer from moderate to severe Sleep Apnea
  • cannot tolerate or get consistent relief using a CPAP device
  • have a BMI of <32 (we will work with individuals to help them meet this marker)
  • must be at least 18 years old

Christopher D. Pool MD

 

 

If you are looking for a CPAP alternative and want to explore Inspire® Therapy, schedule a consultation with Christopher D. Pool, MD. Dr. Pool can effectively diagnose the cause of your sleep disturbance by administering an overall health exam which may require a Sleep Study. In addition, he will also examine your airway to determine if Inspire® Therapy is the right treatment for you. With a same-day outpatient Inspire® Therapy procedure, you can start experiencing better sleep and a healthier you in no time.

If you are not a candidate for Inspire® Therapy, we will recommend a treatment plan that is right for you. Alternative Sleep Apnea Treatment Plans may include CPAP devices, Dental devices, Body positioning devices, Surgical treatment, Lifestyle changes that may include weight loss, and more.

Do you think you may have a sleep disorder?

  • Do you have a dry mouth, sore throat, or a headache in the morning?
  • Are you often tired during the day even after a full night’s sleep?
  • Do you struggle with inferior quality of sleep?

 

If you or your bed partner are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above and are not following a treatment plan to address Sleep Apnea be sure to schedule an appointment today. Complications from untreated Sleep Apnea can be severe and even fatal.
