Sleep Apnea can be cured by new Technology

Sleep Apnea can be cured by new Technology

The device acts like a pacemaker and has to be placed inside the chest beneath the skin.

Sleep apnea is a complex disease which is not as lightly taken in medical terms as done in the laymen world. The sleeping disorder affects roughly 22 million Americans and is distinguished from other sleeping disorders by symptoms of heavy breathing during sleep when the airways collapse repeatedly. According to Dr. Victoria Surdulescu, who is with the UC Health, the sleep apnea is most “Similar to what happens to a thin straw when one tries to suck a thick milkshake through, it just collapses,”

Researchers in the medical fields have been studying this disease since a very long time and much of the research has been directed towards finding out cures for it. The Inspire Medical Systems recently came up with a new technology to deal with the sleeping order and it very much operates like a pacemaker. Patients will have to go through a little operational procedure to get this treatment because the pacemaker has to be placed beneath the skin just inside the chest. It helps to send an electrical pulse to the patient’s tongue each time he/she breathes. This pulse helps to trigger the airways which in return open up and allow the person to breathe.

The device has been tested over a period of two years by Gary Klare who participated in an international study for the device. One of just 126 in the world, and seven in Cincinnati, Klare told WLWT News 5 traditional therapies, like sleep masks, were uncomfortable for him. The device apparently seems to be doing pretty good because almost two-thirds of the people reported having 70% reduction in their sleep apnea. “My apnea improved by 100 percent,” Klare said.
