Kettering Medical Sleep Center offers new alternative treatment for CPAP therapy

Published: Tuesday, September 03, 2019 @ 12:59 PM

The Kettering Medical Sleep Center is offering a new alternative treatment for people who use CPAP therapy.

Inspire, a device that’s implanted under the skin of the neck and chest during an outpatient procedure, is an FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment.

The device is controlled by a small, handheld remote. While you sleep, it delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, allowing the airway to remain open without a mask, hose or machine.

“We are excited to be the first in the Dayton area to offer the Inspire sleep apnea system,” says Kevin Carter, DO, medical director of the Sleep Center at Kettering Medical Center. “About 30 percent of patients who try CPAP therapy stop using the device for various reasons. Inspire can give patients hope and another chance to effectively treat their sleep-related breathing disorder.”
