Our Product - How it Works
Inspire works inside the body. It’s a small device placed during a same-day, outpatient procedure. When the patient is ready for bed, they simply click the remote to turn Inspire on. While asleep, Inspire opens the patient’s airway, allowing them to breathe normally and sleep peacefully.
Why Choose Inspire
Less invasive than conventional OSA surgeries and preserves the natural airway anatomy
Opens the airway
Designed to maintain airway patency at multiple levels of the airway
Clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve quality of life.
If your patient has the Inspire Generator Model 3028, they are eligible for MRI exams of the head, neck and extremities provided specific guidelines are followed.
Patient ID Card
You have several options to determine what type of Inspire Generator Model is implanted in your patient:
- Look at the Patient’s ID Card
- Examine the patient’s medical records
- Identify through X-Ray
There is a YELLOW MR TRIANGLE on the back of the Patient ID Card if your patient has the Inspire Generator Model 3028. If so, they are eligible for MRI Head and Extremity scans provided specific guidelines in the manual are followed.
If your patient has the Inspire Generator Model 3024, they are not eligible for MRI scans. However, they are eligible to have CT scans, X-Rays and ultrasound images taken anywhere in the body.
It is important to note that all Inspire patients are eligible to have CT scans, X-Rays and ultrasound images taken anywhere in the body.
