Inspire is an exciting new therapy for obstructive sleep apnea patients struggling with CPAP. Inspire is a titratable therapy that works inside the body by delivering mild stimulation to restore muscle tone in the upper airway, significantly reducing AHI events.

Watch a Sleep Review-produced webinar in which a multidisciplinary panel discusses their experiences with patients along the care pathway. They discuss proper patient selection, preparation for device evaluation and the procedure, and post-implant adjustments to maximize therapy benefit.

This 1-hour webinar originally aired Dec 15, 2020, and its recording is now available for on-demand viewing.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify patients who meet indications for Inspire
  • Adequately prepare a patient to be referred to an ENT for Inspire evaluation
  • Understand key elements of Inspire post-implant care management
