Inspire – Your Answer to Sleep Apnea

By: Michael Layland, M.D.

If you’re ready to ditch your CPAP machine, then the Inspire technology is perfect for you. Manage your sleep apnea without any machines or hose with this simple implant. Inspire is a device implanted inside the body that works with a patient’s natural breathing process. Based on your unique breathing patterns, the system gently stimulates key airway muscles, keeping the airway open during sleep. The therapy is controlled by a small handheld sleep remote which allows the patient to turn the device on before bed and off then they wake up.

Dr. Layland implants Inspire during a short, outpatient procedure. Patients return home the same day and can resume non-strenuous activities within a few days of the procedure.

Is Inspire Right For You?

You may be a candidate for Inspire therapy if:

  • You have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea
  • You are unable to use or get consistent benefit from CPAP
  • You are not significantly overweight
  • You are over the age of 18

Dr Layland provides expert care for the evaluation and implantation of the Inspire device. He has the experience and skills to complete your procedure and get you back to the well-rested and rewarding life that you deserve.
