Inspire® Upper Airway Stimulation: How It Works

  • Category: Sleep Medicine

BCH’s Foothills Hospital is proud to be the only Boulder County facility offering Inspire® Upper Airway Stimulation — an innovative treatment option for patients with moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who can’t tolerate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

Inspire is a minimally invasive surgical alternative that uses an implanted device to monitor your breathing and keep your airway open while you sleep.
