Chances are, you’ve tried many sleep apnea treatments, including the CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) mask. If they didn’t work and you’re still putting up with a constant loss of sleep and daytime drowsiness, you could be placing yourself at risk. Studies link sleep deficiency to such serious health consequences as heart disease,1 stroke, increased risk of car wrecks and work accidents, and diminished job performance.2-4
Fortunately, there's another option. The AIRvance Tongue and Hyoid Suspension System from Medtronic is an effective, minimally invasive sleep apnea treatment that takes about 30 minutes per procedure with typically just an overnight observational stay. A small implant supports your tongue and/or hyoid bone to prevent tissues from blocking your airway — which may finally prevent the sleep apnea from occurring.
