Study shows that upper airway stimulation has long-term, positive impact on quality of life

A study published in the January issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that hypoglossal cranial nerve stimulation therapy produced long-term, clinically meaningful improvements in snoring, daytime alertness, and sleep-related quality of life among select patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who had difficulty adhering to positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy. Positive effects were maintained across a 2-year follow-up period.
