Inspire Therapy works to keep the airways open.
For the most part, the system goes unnoticed by patients. This is because the system only runs when the patient is asleep. Before drifting off to sleep, patients should feel some mild tingling or even small contractions in their tongue muscles. But this is the device keeping the airways open. Pain or discomfort should never be felt. Patients will work with a specially trained doctor who is able to make the required adjustments.
