PODCAST: Are you ready for a good night's sleep
Dr. Mohsin Khan is a sleep specialist with Mercyhealth in Rockford. Listen as he discusses a new method of curing sleep apnea that requires nothing more than a push of a button.
The Inspire Device is a pacemaker that is implanted on a nerve that controls the throat. When a closure is detected during the night, a small electrical pulse is emitted and the throat opens back up allowing the patient to breathe properly.
Rockford is one of the few cities in the area that can handle the procedure from start to finish so if this sounds like something that can help you, you should reach out to the sleep center at Mercyhealth and schedule an appointment.
