Imagine you are dreaming and the muscles in your throat relax enough that tissues block the airway. This is a common form of sleep apnea called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). One in 15 people in the U.S. have OSA and 80% of them are undiagnosed. If you have tried the CPAP machine, without success, there is a treatment available called Inspire. Join Dr. Jonathan Lee, plastic surgeon, Baystate Plastic Surgery, and Dr. Daniel Plosky, otolaryngologist, Ear, Nose, & Throat Surgeons of Western New England, for a discussion about
the technology that you may not have heard of which has decreased snoring, and reduced sleep apnea events. Topics will include an overview of OSA, how it is diagnosed, and the various surgical treatments options including Inspire.
