PCI Partners to Bring New Sleep Apnea Therapy to Eastern Iowa


Described as a breathing “pacemaker” for sleep apnea sufferers, the Inspire® upper airway stimulation implant offers an obstructive sleep apnea solution to those who cannot use continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines.
 
“If you have trouble using a CPAP machine, this may be a therapy to consider,” said Scott Geisler, MD, Neurology and Sleep Medicine at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa. “We can evaluate your individual situation and recommend the best fit. Several factors determine what sleep apnea treatments are suggested, including body mass index and the overall health of the patient. Not all therapies are recommended for everyone.”

The Inspire® system is a breathing sensor and a stimulation lead, powered by a small battery. Implanted during a short, outpatient procedure, Inspire therapy continuously monitors breathing during sleep. The system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, and gently moves the tongue and other soft tissues out of the airway, so breathing is uninterrupted.

“Obstructive sleep apnea affects roughly 18 million Americans, and it can have devastating impacts on your health,” Geisler said. “Not only are sleep apnea sufferers more likely to have hazy concentration and mood swings due to lack of sleep, they are at risk for depression, high blood pressure, even a heart attack.”
 
Sleep partners of sleep apnea sufferers are also at risk for health problems due to lack of a good night’s rest. Loud snoring is a hallmark symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.
 
“Not all snoring is sleep apnea,” Geisler pointed out. “However, it’s a good idea to come to PCI to be evaluated by a sleep specialist. We can help determine what is affecting your sleep and what to do about it.”
 
The first line of therapy for obstructive sleep apnea is usually CPAP. However, some patients are either unable to use or do not get consistent benefits from CPAP. Therefore, new therapies that can help ease sleep apnea symptoms are critical.
