Middlesex Health was the first in Connecticut to offer Inspire therapy, an innovative new treatment for sleep apnea patients who haven’t had success with the CPAP mask. A small implant monitors your breathing while you sleep and, based on your unique breathing patterns, gently stimulates the muscles needed to keep your airway open. The entire system is made up of three parts: a small generator, a breathing sensor lead and a stimulation lead—and it is all controlled by a handheld remote.
The primary benefit of Inspire therapy is that it can be implanted by Dr. D’Agostino in a simple outpatient procedure with no permanent modification to any part of your body. Studies show that patients are seeing outstanding results.
