The Kettering Medical Sleep Center is offering Inspire, a device that’s implanted under the skin of the neck and chest during an outpatient procedure to treat obstructive sleep apnea.

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.
