Around 22 million Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. The treatment often involves
wearing a mask to sleep at night. Inspire is a new technology that eliminates the need for a mask
by implanting a small device in the chest to stimulate breathing while you sleep. It is similar to a
pacemaker and is now being offered in Alaska. Join me, Dr Justin Clark as I explore the
indications and outcomes of this new device. That’s Line One, Wednesday at 10 am, repeating at
8 pm on Alaska Public Media FM 91.1.
