Dr. Daniel D. Martin is proud to offer Inspire therapy as an implantable treatment option for people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea who are unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP. Inspire monitors your breathing patterns while you are asleep, and the system delivers mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, which controls the movement of your tongue and other airway muscles. By stimulating these muscles, the airway remains open during sleep. 

Inspire Therapy “How it Works” 

Inspire therapy is controlled by a small handheld sleep remote. The remote allows you to turn Inspire therapy on before bed and off when you wake up, increase, and decrease stimulation strength, and pause during the night if needed. Click for How Does Inspire Work

Do I Qualify for Inspire? – During your appointment, Dr. Martin will review the following with you

Sleep Study Results

● If you have not had a sleep study within the last two years, you may need a new one ● Sleep studies can be performed at home or in a sleep lab

Body Mass Index (BMI) 

● BMI is a calculation based on height and weight 

● BMI requirements vary by Insurance Plans. Medicare requires BMI less than 35, some commercial plans require BMI less than 32 

Airway Anatomy

● Your airway anatomy will be checked during an airway exam prior to implantation. The exam will help Dr. Martin find the airway blockage that is causing your sleep apnea. This is done as a short outpatient procedure. 

Inspire Implant

● If you pass your airway exam, an implantation surgical date will be scheduled. Your Inspire procedure will take around 2 hours and you will go home following the surgery. Dr. Martin will provide instructions for you following the surgery. Click here to learn more about Inspire www.inspiresleep.com
