Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a potentially serious sleep disorder that affects over 18 million Americans.
OSA occurs when your airway collapses during sleep, blocking the flow of oxygen to your brain. Your brain senses a lack of oxygen and wakes your body up just long enough to take a breath, then falls back asleep. This cycle repeats through the night and causes poor sleep.
CPAP is typically prescribed as the first line of treatment for OSA, however studies show 50 percent of people can’t use or get benefit from it. If you or a loved one is struggling with CPAP, there is a silent, mask-free solution now available in New Jersey called, Inspire.
Inspire is an FDA-approved sleep solution that works inside your body with your natural breathing process. Inspire delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, gently moving your tongue forward and opening the airway during sleep. No mask, no hose, no noise.
Learn more about Inspire and see if it may be right for you at a free community education event on Nov. 14 at the Princeton Fitness and Wellness Center at 1 p.m. To register, please visit InspireSleep.com or call 844-756-9744.
