Sleep Care in Los Angeles
Nothing is as disruptive to leading a normal, productive life as the inability to get good, restful sleep. Almost everyone experiences an occasional sleepless night, but chronic sleeplessness may be a sign of an undiagnosed sleep disorder.
You may have a sleep disorder if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue
- Snoring loudly with periods of no breathing
- Falling asleep while driving or doing other daytime activities
- Waking with a dry throat
- Experiencing morning headaches
- Irritability and mood changes
- Sleeping restlessly
At least 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, and 12 million of those have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious condition characterized by interrupted breathing that prevents air from reaching the lungs. This can lead to snoring, excessive daytime fatigue and moodiness. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to heart disease and stroke.
Better sleep, healthier you
Our specialists offer a new upper airway stimulation therapy to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
How Inspire therapy works
The Inspire system works completely inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat obstructive sleep apnea. Inspire therapy is controlled using the small, hand-held Inspire sleep remote with no mask or hose needed. You simply turn the therapy on before bed—you can adjust stimulation strength and pause stimulation during the night if needed—and off when you wake. It’s therapy that can help you take control of your sleep apnea and get the restful sleep you’ve been missing.
Is Inspire therapy right for you?
You may be a candidate for Inspire therapy if you:
- Have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea
- Are unable to tolerate or benefit from CPAP
- Are not significantly overweight
- Are over the age of 18
