The photo inspired Marsh to think about alternative ways to treat sleep apnea which, according to the American Association for Respiratory Care, affects up to 18 million adults in the U.S. Thankfully, New Year’s Day brings more than post-celebration fatigue and a champagne-induced hangover. Implantation of a sleep apnea device called Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation (UAS) therapy can lead to significant improvements for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), according to a study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. The multicenter, prospective Stimulation Therapy for Apnea Reduction (STAR) trial was conducted at 22 medical centers in the United States and Europe, and is the first to evaluate the use of upper airway stimulation for sleep apnea. This graphic illustrates how an implantable electronic stimulation device provides a mild stimulus to the hypoglossal nerve timed to each breathing cycle. A clinical study has found that electronic stimulation therapy to reduce obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is safe and effective. A small implant being studied for the treatment of central sleep apnea is showing significant promise, according to study results presented by Dr.


A new study suggests that treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy improves golf performance in middle-aged men.
A new study conducted at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) has revealed some of the underlying mechanisms that may increase the risk of heart disease in people with sleep apnea. UCLA researchers have reported the first evidence that obstructive sleep apnea contributes to a breakdown of the blood–brain barrier, which plays an important role in protecting brain tissue.
Like more than 20 million other Americans, John Brugger has been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Building on the premise of the traditional CPAP machine, Marsh developed a new, smaller device that uses hundreds of micro-blowers, or pumps, that provide the same amount of air at the same pressure as the CPAP. He plans to launch an Indiegogo campaign on June 15 to raise the necessary funds, and expects to begin formal testing of the device by the end of this year.
I have been following Airing since it was announced, but have found nothing of substance on either the device or the inventor.


After one year, patients using the device had an approximately 70 percent reduction in sleep apnea severity, as well as significant reductions in daytime sleepiness. Patients with OSA stop breathing, known as apnea, frequently during sleep, often for a minute or longer, and over half of those with OSA are overweight. The Inspire UAS therapy device is designed to sense breathing patterns and deliver mild stimulation to a patient's airway muscles to keep the airway open during sleep.Using various sleep-disorder measuring systems, patients were found to experience 68 to 70 percent fewer sleep-apnea episodes per hour.
Repeated episodes of apnea can lead to daytime fatigue, and increase a person's risk for heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and even death.
