Inspire Sleep Apnea Innovation

    Overview

    Inspire works with just the click of a button to treat the underlying cause of sleep apnea. It is the only FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment to work inside your body instead of with a mask or hose. 

    These are the basic qualification for Inspire: 

    • You have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.
    • You are unable to use or get consistent benefits from CPAP.
    • You are not significantly obese.
    • You are age 18 or above.

    One of SIU's Pulmonologists will see you for an assessment to make sure you meet the criteria for Inspire. 

    After the assessment, you will see Dr. Pardis Javadi, an Otolaryngologist specializing in the Inspire procedure. She will perform a sleep endoscopy to see how your airways collapse. If there is an appropriate collapse the surgery will be scheduled for Inspire to be implanted. 

    To request an appointment call 217-545-8000

    Please contact your insurance provider to see if Inspire is covered. If covered approval could take a few days or weeks. 

    Once you've had the procedure, you will have a follow-up with your Pulmonologist to turn Inspire on. Some adjustments may be needed.
