Neuromodulation to Treat Sleep Apnea: Top 10 Medical Innovations 2018

31 ratings | 17235 views
Sleep apnea, the most common sleep disturbance, impacts 21 million Americans and can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. While continuous positive airway pressure device, (C.P.A.P.) is the gold standard treatment, it is estimated that more than 40 percent of sleep apnea patients refuse to wear the device. Companies are now marketing an implant that delivers stimulation to open key airway muscles during sleep. Controlled by a remote or wearable patch, the technology acts like a pacemaker, helping to synchronize the intake of air with the action of the tongue using a breathing sensor and a stimulation lead powered by a small battery. These neuromodulation systems have had positive results in clinical testing and are predicted to be the technology to deliver a better night’s sleep to more patients and spouses, and healthier communities nationwide.
